Fox News Megyn Kelly: "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" -- literally

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white 

Something tells me that when Fox & Friends have a Christmas office party, I'm dreaming of a white Christmas by Irving Berlin (yes Fox, a Jewish man) is the number one requested song.

Especially after, Fox's rising star, Megyn Kelly, emphatically declared the whiteness of both Santa and Jesus (that means god is white for the Fox type Christians).

On Wednesday's "The Kelly File," the newswoman criticized a Slate article written by a black journalist that questioned cultural depictions of Santa as white and suggested that the traditional jolly and zaftig elf should be replaced by a penguin.

"For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white," Kelly informed viewers. "Santa is what he is.... I wanted to get that straight."
Were there not a War on Christmas underway (Fox News has a helpful "war room" map and other details here), Showtracker would counter that some scholars have debated whether Santa is at all and whether it would be possible to deliver presents to millions of homes around the world in a single night assisted only by a sleigh and a team of reindeer.

But such musings might incite further hostilities in this war, which we hope is over soon so the troops can return home to their families.

Anyway, in debating the issue with three panelists (three panelists! for a Santa segment!), Kelly took issue with the notion of a racially inclusive Santa
"Just because [an image] makes you feel uncomfortable doesn't mean it has to change," Kelly said. "I mean, Jesus was a white man too. He was a historical figure — that's a verifiable fact." And then Kelly cupped her hands to the sides of her mouth and added: "As is Santa. I just want the kids watching to know that."  read more

And may all your Christmases be white!
