“Happy Whatever to all of you. No Happy Holidays.” That was George Pataki’s mangled attempt at fighting against the War on Christmas Friday evening. Pataki began his remarks to a group of New Hampshire Republicans by criticizing generic holiday greetings, saying that “I refuse to” refer to his firm’s December party as a “holiday party”.
Seemingly unaware of the contradiction, Pataki closed his remarks by saying “have a wonderful, wonderful holiday.” The event he spoke at? It was the Chesire County, New Hampshire Republicans “Holiday Gathering.”
