As The Day with No Name looms on December 25, and we dash across the snow in a one-horse open vehicle, we ought not forget to display our Holiday Tree.
Gov. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, the man who recently declined to turn over a killer for federal prosecution because the federal government has the death penalty (as Kent noted here), has done it again.
A tall, green shrub seems to have made its way into the statehouse, but lest there be insufficient, ya know, inclusiveness, this embarrassing Botanical Object shall be known as the Holiday Tree, so sayeth the Governor. Wouldn't want to offend those Wiccans.Lincoln Chafee had served in the U.S. Senate as a Republican. He left the Senate and the Republican Party in 2007, thus increasing the average IQ of both.
