Stephen Colbert last night continued his coverage of the nation’s war on Christmas, calling Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) — who is urging Congress to continue working through the holidays — the “albino raisin who stole Christmas.”
Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) has said it would be impossible to complete all the work Reid wants to accomplish during the holidays “without disrespecting one of the two holiest of holidays for Christians, and the families of all the Senate.” And Colbert agrees.
“Yes, it is so easy to forget that the week after Christmas is one of the two holiest of holidays,” Colbert said. “The other being, of course, Shark Week.”
