No Linus for you

The mayor of Arlington, TN thinks President Obama scheduled his Tuesday speech intentionally to preempt The Charlie Brown Christmas Special.  You see, our Muslim president wanted to block the Christian message of the Peanuts special.  I kid you not.  I don't think I could have made that one up if I'd tried.

He posted this on his Facebook page and received about 70 comments.  Then the Memphis paper picked it up.  The mayor said some other awesome things, too,  suggesting there's something wrong with anyone who answers the question, "Do you believe Jesus Christ is the son of god?" with anything other than a quick, "Yes!" is unworthy.  Oh, and he thinks perhaps "things would be different" if  we hadn't altered our Constitution to take out that whole only property-owners can vote thing.  You must be so proud, Arlington.

Here's my question, Mr. Mayor.  Do you really think the president knows what's scheduled to play on Channel 7 at 8 p.m. on a Tuesday?  Really?

h/t to Kerfuffle for informing me of this, well, kerfuffle.

I guarantee you that even if the President didn't have that whole running the country plus two wars thing to keep him busy, there is still a good likelihood that he would have no idea what was playing at a certain time on a certain night on any channel. I am pretty sure the White House probably has a DVR or two in it.

As any person who has a DVR and is not afraid to use it can attest to...once you have a particular show set to record and you can watch it in your own free time, it gets a whole lot harder to remember when things are actually scheduled to air.

Besides, doesn't the Charlie Brown Christmas Special air like twenty times between now and Christmas? Is one less airing really going to disturb the mayor THAT much? Weird.

And I'm pretty sure the president doesn't set that DVR himself. He probably has an assistant, like Charlie from West Wing, to do it. Or his daughters.
