What's your favorite movie to watch this time of year? It's a Wonderful Life? Bad Santa? A looped video of a burning log? Yeah, those are good, but they're not nearly as festive as 'Twas the Congress Before Christmas, starring Kit Bond and two small dogs in matching sweaters…
Call me sentimental, but I think he really captures the spirit of Christmas with that "threw up in the basin o'er the loss of our cash" line.
Another lump of coal in your stocking: Roland Burris did his own terrible version of Clement Moore's poem on the Senate floor yesterday, but he didn't bring any "doggie friends."

Say what you will about Kit Bond's politics, you have to admit the dude has a cool name. Though, before anyone gets too carried away, it should be noted that Kit is just his nickname. His birth name is Fonzie Karate Bond. Anyway, if you enjoyed Jon Stewart's interview with the Missouri Senator on last night's Daily Show, you won't want to miss this extended version.
The interview continues below.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

These health care town hall meetings just keep getting angrier and angrier, what with the attacks on members of Congress (not to mention Michele Bachmann giving birth all over the place), so I'm almost afraid to read to the end of this story about yesterday's angry forum held by angry GOP Senators John McCain, Mitch McConnell and Kit Bond in Kansas City…
They blasted President Barack Obama’s vision of health care reform, calling it outlandishly expensive, and predicted it could lead to rationing and outsized budget deficits for years to come.
McCain, Bond and McConnell took turns pounding the Democratic plan.
Uh-oh! Sounds angry! I bet that made some members of the audience really angry! Everybody duck!
The tone of the hourlong session was subdued and the questions, including one from Mayor Mark Funkhouser, were not confrontational. The audience's only response was applause.
How the… what the… is John McCain secretly a unicorn made of ice cream? What other explanation is there?
[T]he GOP forum at Children’s Mercy was by invitation only. About 100 people — mostly medical professionals and small business owners — filled seats in the small auditorium, along with the media.
Well, I guess if you want to listen to the will of the people on contentious policies, you should pick your people pretty carefully.
