It's the Day's Day of Days! Because it is the night of the dear Savior's birth.
You know--maybe I'm touchy, but this offends me. I'm reminded of the scene in All About Eve where Addison DeWitt, after revealing that "Eve's" dead husband is a fiction calls it an insult to real heroes and the women who really lost them. That is my problem with Zed in a Captain Mitty-mode--Muir thinks he's making a great patriotic point--instead this is an insult to those whose loved ones actually have risked their life serving in wars that Muir supported when a Republican was in office--and would likely still support if that were the case.
