Is Santa Claus a Democrat or Republican? The Answer Is a No-Brainer!

LOL 31

santa from behindWhen we look back on 2012, there's no doubt we'll talk about it being an election year. But the presidential battle aside, it was a year jam-packed with intense political battles. So it's no wonder that even though the general election was decided over a month ago, somehow partisan politics have bled into the holiday season. Yup, there's actual speculation on what side of the aisle Santa Claus himself falls on. 

So, does Jolly Ol' Saint Nick identify as a Democrat or a Republican? Public Policy Polling recently asked voters, and the result actually makes a lot of sense ...

According to 44 percent of American voters, Santa Claus is a Democrat. Meanwhile, 28 percent say he's a Republican, and another 28 percent aren't sure. But clearly the majority knows what's up. Santa's obviously a Dem, because he ... 

  1. ... made his life's work about "spreading the wealth." Every year, the guy levels the class warfare battlefield by caring for every boy and girl -- no matter where they live or what tax bracket they're in.
  2. ... believes a Tea Party is one that involves a brand new tea set made by his elves.
  3. ... aims to deliver presents to 100 percent of the people. Not just 47.
  4. ... is as old as time. Thus, he must value the elderly and would give them Medicare if that's all they wanted for Christmas.
  5. ... would very, very rarely say no (unless you've been very naughty). Unlike Republicans who only know how to say no, no matter how naughty or nice President Obama has been.

What would you say Santa's political affiliation is?

Give it a fucking rest. Romney lost. No need to keep bringing up the 47 percent comment.

You want to know what I actually got from this post? The alarming realization that a bunch of grown people actually "voted" on what an imaginary man's political preference is, and the fact that you are a democrat. That's great, good for you, but do you even actually know anything about the Republican party or do you just write snarky articles because you think that's what dems are supposed to do?

I suggest some research.

Why can't anyone understand that the two parties used to work together to fix things? All the damn fighting between the two sides and the stupid passive aggressive crap like this that both sides vomit in some sort of hope of sticking it to the other party isn't doing any good. Sometimes, I wonder if there are any other people left who just care about the country rather than image. Thanks for ruining my Christmas with this. Dem or pub, this is just wrong.

Nice to the moderators for deleting my comment. Glad free speech only applies when it's bashing the conservative blogger on this site. I said it before and I will say it again. I think (hope) this article is a joke..but it wouldn't surprise me if it's serious coming from you, Maressa. And just when I thought it was impossible for you to get anymore idiotic...

Congrats! This is officially the dumbest thing I've ever read. Can I get the last 2 minutes of my life back? (Can I also find a job where I'm allowed to poorly write unfunny drivel and get paid for it????)

My comment is noticeably missing as well. Funny how the one with the f word made it and mine did not. Not the first time either. Thanks cafe mom for making my opinion count! Not.

I'm so very sorry for you, Maressa, that hatred so fills your heart. I hope and pray that some day the light will shine within your soul and you will feel the love so readily available in the world. It is my prayer this Christmas season that your heart will soften and a desire for kindness will replace your need to hurt. Merry Christmas, Maressa.

Holy holiday spirit! Nothing says happiness and cheer like turning a children's myth into a devisive political rant.

Wow. Now you're bringing politics into Christmas? You just cant give it a break, can you? Like you said, THE ELECTION ENDED OVER A MONTH AGO. So why are you still bring up old news? You know why 28% said they dont know, because only a democrat would be so concerned about which side of the aisle Santa is on. The rest of us simply dont give a shit and would prefer to keep politics out of our holidays!
