Like Election 2008, Christmas Arrives Early

Yikes, our first holiday invitation arrives before Halloween. Still, thanks, Heritage.

 It's a good media party, the Heritage Foundation's Christmas fete, so it's something Whispers looks to be invited to. But before Halloween? Yup, the invite, seen above, arrived Friday for the December 3 shindig. I guess it's a sign of the times: In a season where the presidential race started a year early, it only makes sense for Christmas invitations to arrive about the same time Home Depot and Target offer their fake Christmas trees.
