That damned Need

What's Mallard raving about today?

Santa Claus

Isn't that cute? A murderous child can't tell the difference between Santa Clause and God.

Note, also, that the child doesn't know the difference between God (who does the smiting) and Jesus, his Liberal Hippie Son, whose birthday we're about to celebrate.

Well, it is true that a lot of us in the atheist movement point out that the principles of santa are pretty similar to most of the principles of God.

The kid is odd though, doesn't want toys but wants someone smote...would love to know more about that one actually, as that might be an interesting story...probably beyond Tinsley, but it at least has me curious.

The kid wants someone killed, and wants Santa to do it either because he's lazy or because he wants deniability.

Because, you know, kids today, am I right? They don't even understand who Santa is, right? And they're violent? right? Because, y'know- ummm- WAR ON CHRISTMAS!

The kid's grey. Is he Li'l' Rush, the Slightly Ethnic Talking Point Amplification Device? Tinsley usually uses SETPADs to push pure FOX NEWS lines, so it actually matters who he is. Unfortunately, the drawing doesn't really give us a clue.
