Boycott Happy

The LA Times has an interesting story about the American Family Association being up-in-arms about corporations not using the word "Christmas" in their holiday advertisements. This year, they're calling for a boycott of Gap and its brands on these grounds.

It's a pretty bad commercial, but if you watched it, you'll notice Gap actually does use the word Christmas. It's almost as if the American Family Association has a pile of pre-written forms, they merely fill in the name of the (presumably) offending company and the rest is magic. Sometimes if I wonder if these organizations actually don't want what they're demanding, because, once they get it, what do they have to make noise about anymore?
