It's Historic: The Oprah-Obama Christmas Special

Someone please make it stop.

Actually, I'm offended they're not calling it a Winter Holiday special.
The queen of daytime will interview the president of the country during an ABC holiday special that brings together Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama.

The network has announced "Christmas at the White House: An Oprah Primetime Special," which includes an interview with the president, a conversation with the First Couple and tour of the White House. The special will also go behind-the-scenes as staffers prepare the White House for the holiday season.

The special marks the first time Winfrey has interviewed Obama since he took office. "Christmas at the White House" will air Sunday, Dec. 13, at 10 p.m.
All I can add is this is truly unprecedented.

Ace links. Thanks!

Meanwhile, I got to thinking of some counter-programming. How does a Very Wasilla Christmas grab you? I'm thinking Sarah, Todd and the kids are joined by Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and Greta Van Susteren. They can roast the authors of Going Rouge, or maybe Andrew Sullivan over an open fire while Santa Limbaugh flies in from EIB's Southern Command to distribute toys. Failing that, see here for some suggestions.

With the holiday spirit in mind, we bring you the Twelve Days of Obamas.
