Jon Stewart to Fox News: "War on Women" Isn't OK Terminology, But "War on Christmas" Is?

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart skewered Fox News personalities and other right-wingers who argue that the war on women is phony -- something concocted by Democrats for political gain (or something). Stewart played clips of conservative talking heads guffawing at the utter ridiculousness of a so-called "war on women"... followed by a clip that reminds us of the "war" that really concerns the right: the war on Christmas (dun dun duuuuuun!). It's actually a very smart segment, comparing the "evidence" for a war on Christmas ("No colored lights?! Noooo!") to the evidence for a war on women. You decide what the real war is!
