Maybe it was the very fact of enjoying a wonderful Christmas with my family and friends, against the manufactured backlash to a nonexistent “War on Christmas,” that let me appreciate the perilous mental state of a small but noisy and paranoid swath of white America. Somehow over the holiday it became clear: 2013 was the year white grievance mongering became an uglier and even more lucrative racket.
Fox News has been peddling the phony “War on Christmas” for years, of course, but it took new Fox phenom Megyn Kelly to give it an explicitly racial cast. Not only did Kelly wage war against the menace of a black Santa – declaring nonsensically that the fictional character of Santa Claus “just is white” – but when she was called on it, she made herself out to be the victim of politically correct bullies, race-baiters and Fox haters.

Resolutions make me laugh. We make them every year. We convince ourselves we’ll actually keep them even though we know we won’t. We brag about them to other people, like the simple fact of planning to do better is the accomplishment. We know nothing about January 1st is going to better equip us to accomplish something than June 1st. So why do we do it year after year?
Because it makes us feel good. And it’s fun to fantasize.
I was thinking the other day of all the things I wanted to improve in the new year. But felt the air hiss out of my tires when I pictured myself a few weeks into January saying “f$*# it” and falling right back into my old habits.
This was my little lightbulb moment. A good resolution is not about setting big goals. It’s about changing…
