The Greeley Tribune breaks the case wide open…
Two weeks ago, a Republican — a big-time Windsor Republican — was the White House Easter Bunny. For two weeks, Jerry Helgeson didn’t talk much about it, didn’t go to the media, just kind of savored the details for himself, his friends and family…
How did a guy from Weld County — a big-time Republican, to boot — make it all the way to the White House lawn for the annual Easter Egg Roll?
I had my suspicions about that rabbit years ago when I realized how much more candy the rich kids on my block got than the poor kids. The kind of supply-side economics approach he took to jelly bean distribution never sat well with me. It always seemed like I had to make due with yellow, green and black while the Joey Sacravetti had all the reds, pinks and whites.
But, I guess I would have suspected him of being more Libertarian than Republican, given how much work he's always done to remove Jesus from the Easter holiday.

Update from Dennis: Unfortunately, I couldn't make a good enough case for including my personal favorite: "The name Easter comes from the false goddess 'Astarte.'" (andrespereyda.com)

Not that there's anything at all creepy about a holiday based on a dead man rising from the dead to revisit the people who ate of his flesh and drank of his blood a few days earlier.*
* For the sake of keeping this post on topic, let's just assume that that's House Minority Leader John Boehner inside the rabbit suit, okay? Thanks.
It kinda looks like anyway.
