    After reading my piece about the National Republican Campaign Committee's "Happy Holidays is what liberals say" shirt, a friend texted me: "You didn't call out that shirt for being a less funny ripoff of 30 Rock??!"
    She's right.
    In "Christmas Attack Zone," Episode 10 of Season 5 of 30 Rock, Avery Jessup (Elizabeth Banks) and Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) have this exchange:

    Jack: What Christmas card did we end up sending out?

    Avery: Happy Holidays... [opens card] is what terrorists say. Merry Christmas, Avery and Jack.
    There you have today's Republican Party: like a parody of itself, only less funny.
    Speaking of which, the NRCC is now selling "Happy Holidays is what liberals say" as a mug. It's still printed in comic sans.
