Another good job by Remy and the folks at Reason TV.

Last year, they produced this parody about Grandma’s Christmas visit to Gitmo.

Now we see what happens when Santa tries to slip past the Transportation Security Administration.

And if you’ve ever been curious about what a “hooha” is, here are two additional TSA Christmas videos.

P.S. If you’re in the mood for some more holiday humor, we have a couple of videos from Larry the Cable Guy, one featuring slightly modified Christmas carols and the other telling the politically correct version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

Merry Christmas from the Second Amendment

 
Last year, I shared this heartwarming holiday adoption video.

Keeping with that tradition, here’s a Christmas greeting to warm your heart…and offend the delicate sensibilities of statists.

The extra flash at the end is a nice touch. Sort of reminds me of this joke about the difference between conservatives, liberals, and Texans.

Merry Christmas from President Obama

During previous Christmas seasons, I’ve shared some holiday humor.

This year, let’s enjoy a bunch of good cartoons.

Lisa Benson start our list, with this recognition of Time’s Man of the year. It’s so nice of the President to give away other’s people’s money.

Cartoon Christmas 1

And since Obama’s currently threatening to take the nation over the fiscal cliff unless he gets some class warfare tax policy, this Lisa Benson holiday cartoon from last year is worth sharing as well.

The second cartoon has the same theme.

Cartoon Christmas 2

The magnificent Chuck Asay offers this gem, with a message similar to one he produced earlier this year.

Cartoon Christmas 3

Asay also did a Christmas-themed cartoon last year.

Jerry Holbert provides this funny – but not so funny if you think about it – cartoon.

Cartoon Christmas 4

Here’s a good one from Glenn McCoy. This cartoon is a pretty good summary of how politics really works.

Cartoon Christmas 5

P.S. Here’s a bonus section. I can’t resist being a proud dad and sharing this family photo. It was taken while we had a meal break during some Christmas shopping.

December 2012

Not a bad brood, if I can offer an unbiased assessment.

My kids have made other appearances on the blog – here, here, here, here, and here.
