Commentary: 'Defense' of Christmas isn't necessary

Politicians can do some pretty useless things, sometimes because they are clueless, sometimes because they are sincere but misguided, sometimes because the reality is that they have to play the game of politics or risk becoming irrelevant. I can't tell you in which of the categories above Rep. Henry Brown's House Resolution 951 to "recognize the importance of Christmas" falls. It has 72 Republican co-sponsors and one Democrat. I'll be generous and say Brown's move is a sincere but misguided attempt to ... to fix something that's not broken.
