2. Whoever did it had a great idea
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 02:58 PM by RobertSeattle
But I do note that it's been around before from the cartoon



Earliest I see it at DailyKos is 10/11 (took a while for it to take off)

http://judybrowni.dailykos.com/story/2005/10/11/2108/17...

With search,it seems like it was first mentioned on 10/8 at DU

7. I know where to find that answer and am looking now














It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas
Everywhere you go.
Who's gonna do five-or-ten?
We're thinking once again
Of handcuffs and of orange jumpsuits aglow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas
Indictments on every score
But the prettiest sight to see
Is the scowl on Darth Cheney
At the slammer's front door.

A warrant or writ, a subpoena that fits
Is the wish of Barney and Ben;
The thought of Turdblossom hung up like a possum
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for court to start again.

It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas
Everywhere you go.
There's an defendant who doesn't want to tell;
One in the White House as well --
The felony kind that doesn't mind the law!
It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas
Soon the bells will start
And the thing that will make them ring
Is the indictment that we sing,
Right within our hearts!

crispini

4. Moi?
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 03:02 PM by SpiralHawk
Think I might be guity. Posted the phrase a while back somewhere in the interstices of a thread clebrating the Christmas-like atmosphere that would (theoretically) surround the INDICTMENTS.

Was I really the first? Don't know. It just came to mind while scrolling through the thread. I suppose I could have read it somewhere else first, but I have no recollection of that. At any rate, it sounds like me -- so I'm taking credit till some sort of other claimant or evidence comes forward.

It may turn out that this natural play on words emerged simultaneously in several Skulls at about the same time. Wouldn't be the first time that happened.

Do you think there's a million-dollar book contract somewhere in this? If so, then I definitely TAKE CREDIT.

Merry Fitzmas !

22. Please notify Wikipedia
Hearing no objections, I humbly take my place in RHETORICAL POSTERITY with my fellow luminaries:

Aristotle
Cicero
Voltaire
and Tom Paine.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

27. You can notify Demopedia....
if a consensus has been reached among the etymologists, someone should add the information, with supporting links if possible, to the Demopedia article on Fitzmas: http://demopedia.democraticunderground.com/index.php/Fi...
