Rabbi Jackie Mason, in defense of Christmas

Always liked Jackie Mason.

We now have an even better reason to feel warm and fuzzy about him.
Jackie Mason, the Jewish comic, called in on the Big Story, 12/1, to announce his involvement with a new organization called 'Jews Against The Anti Defamation Of Christmas' (JAACD). Mason with his trademark accent and smattering of Yiddish agreed with host David Asman [sitting in for Jon Gibson] that Christmas is in danger and Jews love Christmas too and don't want this to continue.
Our favorite part of the interview quoted in the story was where Asman asks Mason if it's okay for Jews to refer to the decorated evergreen as a Christmas tree:
"I think anybody who sees it and decides you must call it a holiday tree should be put in a sanitarium."
