Yes, PPP says they ran this poll.

My son made this out of an old Soviet propaganda poster, using MS Paint. I think it came out a little more totalitarian than he realized.

He knows if you've been bad or good: no veil of ignorance to save you. Can that really be said to be a social policy Democrats would go for?

P.J. O'Rourke, in the exasperating introduction to one of his exasperating books:

I have only one firm belief about the American political system, and that is this: God is a Republican and Santa Claus is a Democrat.

God is an elderly or, at any rate, middle-aged mate, a stern fellow, patriarchal rather than paternal and a great believer in rules and regulations. He holds men strictly accountable for their actions. He has little apparent concern for the material well-being of the disadvantaged. He is politically connected, socially powerful and holds the mortgage on literally everything in the world. God is difficult. God is unsentimental. It is very hard to get into God's heavenly country club.

Santa Claus is another matter. He's cute. He's nonthreatening. He's always cheerful. And he loves animals. He may know who's been naughty and who's been nice, but he never does anything about it. He gives everyone everything they want without thought of a quid pro quo. He works hard for charities, and he's famously generous to the poor. Santa Claus is preferable to God in every way but one: There is no such thing as Santa Claus.

"• 61 percent said they would not pursue charges if Grandma got run over by Santa's reindeer. Democrats were more likely to pursue charges than Republicans."

Clearly Santa is in the 1% and grandma is a burden on Medicare and Social Security.

He also enjoys a jolly bit of cross-species buggery with that red-nosed ass bandit rudolph. So definitely a democrat.

Santa runs a sweatshop with underpaid workers in an area with dead cheap land and infrastructure costs, and absolutely no government regulations. Sounds like a 1 percenter to me.
 
2012-12-10 06:04:51 PM  
Santa doesn't want to murder babies, blow people up with drones or tax the shiat out of you. He can't be a liberal.
 
2012-12-10 06:05:11 PM  
I always preferred Krampus anyway.
 
2012-12-10 06:05:25 PM  
If Santa were a Republican, Santa Claus Industries Inc. would be a for-profit monopoly, and elf slave labor would drive Chinese manufacturers out of business. Kids whose parents have money would continue to get the same Christmas they get now, but poor kids would get coal and/or a beating.

Blowing people up with drones is a bipartisan American tradition, like fireworks on July 4th.
 
2012-12-10 06:07:21 PM  
I call BS. 52 percent of poll respondents believe in Santa Claus? They must not get the hint when presents fail to appear under the tree year after year...
 
2012-12-10 06:08:07 PM  
I doubt it. Did you ever wonder how Santa funds his operation? He sells the naughty list to the CIA and the FBI and interested world governments. He sells the nice list to advertisers. Sounds pretty much like a Republican to me.
 
2012-12-10 06:10:05 PM  
G.O.P. Santa says buy your own farking presents.
 
2012-12-10 06:10:26 PM  
His system utilizes religious preference, punishing the devout followers of non-christian faiths, and he gets his black servant to do his dirty work.

FTA: 36 percent agreed that the most annoying holiday song is "The Chipmunk Song." No. 2 is "Santa Baby."

False. #1 is "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time."

Why do 1% of the elves get 99% of the cookies???????

The workshop elves need to put back into order every year. Santarchy pub crawls in NY and DC on Saturday.

Thus he can't be a rapeublican either. I think Santa is a Libertarian. He does no harm to those that do no harm to others. He's judges you only by your merit and gives of his own free will.
 
2012-12-10 06:17:18 PM  
He lives in the middle of no where on a self sufficient compound. He's a libertarian. He's gotta be.
 
2012-12-10 06:19:18 PM  
As an elf I need to explain how we ended up working for the fat guy. As the Enlightenment began to spread through Europe Santa offered us sanctuary at the North Pole. We accepted, not realizing that because of a quirk of elf physiognomy we shrink down to two feet tall at extreme latitudes. Sh there we were shrunken in stature with a huge fat guy throwing his weight around! In short Santa uses slave labor.
He's republican through and through.
 
2012-12-10 06:19:19 PM  
Gotta be.
A Republican Santa would just say, "Fnck you, I got mine."
 
2012-12-10 06:19:24 PM  
Santa is a damn dirty commie:

He always wears red
He has a beard just like Karl Marx
He knows if you're sleeping or awake thanks to the secret police (i.e., the elf on the shelf)
He promises to give kids what they truly want, but really only gives them ugly socks and sweaters
He lives up in Russia, or maybe one of those socialist Scandavian countries
Not particularly fond of the Jews
 
2012-12-10 06:19:34 PM  
Santa is a Republican.

Think about it. Ever seen a kid in Haiti or Somalia with Christmas presents? No. Because Santa doesn't care about black people. Know who else doesn't care about black people? Ask yourself; have you ever seen George W. Bush and Santa in the same room before? Google Image Search doesn't believe so. Laura Bush and Santa however...

Nope. Ever since Fartdingo weaseled his way into office, it is something ONLY Democrates do.

Nope. #1 is the Seymour Swine version of "Blue Christmas".

He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake.

Like Calvin of Calvin & Hobbes fame said, Santa's gotta be running surveillance for the CIA.

Despite giving away things fictionally, in real life he's a mascot for capitalism

Santa names his animals Dancer, Prancer and Vixen. Clearly a tool of the Radical Homosexual AgendaTM.

NORAD tracks him. Isn't that indication enough?
 
2012-12-10 06:21:48 PM  
Repubitards would have you working in a sweatshop, with slave wages, no benefits, and no retirement. And after 15 years or so of being employed, and getting a few raises, they would find a reason to boot you out the door so they could hire someone younger, at less pay. All good as long as they got fat on your efforts. So no..i wouldn't say santa was a republican.
 
2012-12-10 06:22:58 PM  
I misread the headline as Satan is a democrat. It's probably not too far off.

War on Christmas? I don't think so. War on "Santa Baby"? I'll be be leading the charge from the first landing craft to hit the beach.

The only way I can tolerate that is if the woman singing it is hot. Otherwise, I'm right the with you.
