Obama's Ego Stroking Will Preempt "A Charlie Brown Christmas"
— Gabriel Malor

the media kids went to work on it and made it beautiful.

All networks, including FOX, will carry the President's primetime address from West Point tomorrow. He is expected to justify his inexcusable seven-week period of indecision on whether to win the war in Afghanistan. Do not expect him to mention his twice-weekly golf outings. I'm giving even odds he also fails to use the word "victory."

More importantly, President Narcissus will preempt "A Charlie Brown Christmas", which has my absolute favorite monologue in all of television (below the fold):

The peanuts special is getting bumped to next week.

3 President Big Ears is getting to be like Lucy---every time we think we have it all teed up to kick, the sumbitch swipes the football from under our foot.

5 I think he tried to schedule the announcement for tonight but ESPN and the NFL told him to go take a flying f*ck when he asked that they preempt the Saints-Patriots game for him.

6 Actually this works for me because I thought they were putting the Peanuts special on too early in the season.  Imagine that:  Il Douche does something that has at least a partially positive output for me.  No way I'm watching that preening idiot though..

27 And the DVDs are nice, but there's always something about seeing these things on TV cut with toy commercials and holiday flavor that helps bring some Christmas spirit.  These things were *events* when I was a kid.  We talked about them in school the next day, and there would be hell to pay if we ever missed one.  From the cheesy "Special Presentation" graphics to the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine commercials, it's part of the experience.

When these things are done before Pearl Harbor Day, I think it ruins it.

The rest of us true Americans, better known as the producer who worked hard, played by the rules, fought the wars, and paid the taxes will receive a lump of coal and a fresh tube of KY-Jelly for the coming anal assault. Welcome to the wonderful world of Obama and his Marxist minions.

83 That sort of overt Christianity would never pass muster with the networks nowadays. Santa Claus*, reindeer, elves? Okey dokey. Jesus Christ, son of God, Messiah and Savior? Nope, too controversial. It might offend the Jews, Hindus, or Muslims. (And let's not call it Christmas, because some pedants will remember that it means "Christ's Mass"; let us simply say "the holidays".)

That being said...I don't much lament the fact that Christmas may be passing from the pop-culture vernacular. It is, like Easter, primarily a religious holiday and ought to be recognized as such. It celebrates the birth of the Son of God, and it has always seemed rather sacrilegious for unbelievers to celebrate the day as Christmas. (Yeah, yeah, I know: "Merry Christmas to you, too, Mister Grinch!")

*Who is, let us remember, is historically the (Christian) Saint Nicholas.

"And there were in the same country journalists abiding in the sewer, keeping watch over their martini by night. And lo, the angel of the Oprah came upon them, and the glory of the Oprah tingled round about them: and they were sore and afraid.

And the Wright said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you chickens roosting of racial guilt, which shall be to all rich, white people. For unto you is born this day in the City of Daley a Savior, which is Obama the One. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in Marxist politics, lying about his life.' And suddenly there was with the Wright a multitude of the radical host, praising Soros, and saying, 'Glory to Ayers in the highest, and on earth debt, no jobs for young men.'"

104 Charles Shultz was a miserable, bitter, dessicated little asshole of a man.

Which, oddly, is not unusual for humorists and comedians. Bill Watterson (creator of Calvin and Hobbes) was almost a recluse, and remains a resolute contrarian. It wouldn't surprise me if Watterson actually didn't like kids all that much; C&H wasn't an especially kid-friendly strip. "Humorists" like Letterman and Garrison Keillor are reputed jerks in their private lives. (Keillor in particular wants to project the air of a curmudgeon, but is in reality just a self-righteous and holier-than-thou asshole.)

Schulz's Peanuts strip was never really all that "funny" in the sense that other comics of the time were (think Beetle Bailey or Blondie or Dennis the Menace or Family Circus). His themes in the strip were pretty depressing: hopelessness, loss, failure, futility, and alienation. Think about Snoopy. Ostensibly a boy's dog is his best friend, but Snoopy was distant and rather cold towards his owner -- sometimes cruel, often capricious and self-serving. He, like everyone else in the Peanuts world, treated Charlie Brown like a chump. I've often wondered if Schulz wasn't simply updating the old Testament story of Job, with Charlie Brown playing the upright man beset on all sides by the cruelty and perfidy of others. But in Schulz's world, even God cannot comfort Charlie Brown -- he is alienated from everyone and everything, including himself.

Each character in Peanuts always seemed to embody some specific character trait -- they're almost like Greek gods in that way. Schroeder was the god of music; Linus the god of poetry and philosophy; Lucy the god of deceit and tricks, though not explicitly evil (like Loki); Snoopy a god of epicureanism and pure feeling (like Pan); Sally the god of love and beauty (like Aphrodite).

But what does Charlie Brown embody in this universe of assertive egos and pure talents? Failure. Futility. Misplaced hopes and hopeless dreams. He is one of the saddest and most bereft characters in literature.

I'm with you. When my youngest was about three, we were driving through our little S.F. Bay Area suburban town and she noticed the tinsel wrapped around the lampposts to make them look like candy canes. She asked, "When do they put up the Hanukkah decorations?"

I explained that the town wasn't going to do that, because so few Jews live in our town compared to how many Christians live here. Even a three-year-old was able to understand that.  I explained that where here aunt and uncle live in Jerusalem, it was more likely that she'd see some symbols of Hanukkah.

(Of course, it's likely that no one on the town council realized that, far from being a secular "holiday" symbol, are actually representative of the Shepherd's Crook striped with the Blood of the Lamb.)

In an address on the war plan from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York, Obama will discuss the limits on U.S. resources, both in military personnel and budget, Gibbs told reporters at the White House. He also will talk about the role of Pakistan in battling extremists.

Charlie Brown is a thoroughly ordinary kid who is painfully aware of his own limitations. In a nation that feeds its children the mantra, "You can do anything you set your mind to," and its corollary, "Anyone can grow up to be President," Charlie Brown was pretty firmly grounded in reality -- and surrounded by peers who made sure he stayed that way.

And yet, every once in a while, reality gave him something good on which to pin his hopes for the future. Linus helped the other kids see that Charlie's choice of Christmas tree wasn't bad at all; the Little Red-Haired Girl gave him the rare smile or kind word; he caught the fly ball and for once, it didn't fall out of his glove.

And throughout it all, he had at least a couple of loyal friends, chiefly Snoopy and Linus, who took him as he was.  I don't see him in nearly as bleak terms as you do.

Over the years the characters developed organically, so they wouldn't be expected to follow their original purpose.

Example: Earlier comics had a tall black-haired girl Violet and her protege Patty the blonde. They served as manifestations of Charlie Brown's insecurities; when you saw them in a strip, you knew they were going to abuse the guy. But they never really had a character of their own and Schultz eventually relegated them to ciphers.

Lucy took on their roles, in part; but it wasn't her mission to crush Charlie Brown (she wanted him coming back for more after all). Lucy also had her own agenda at home, as Big Sister to Linus.

Sally's portfolio overlaps somewhat with Lucy's. Sally's unrequited love for Linus overlaps with Lucy's for Schroeder.

As for the Platonic goddess of beauty and happiness: Schultz had one, but it wasn't Sally. That's the Little Red-Haired Girl.

stuiec: Schultz was a fan of human decency. Schultz did make Charlie Brown, (earlier) Violet/Patty-the-elder, and (later) Lucy and Sally make comments to the effect that Charlie Brown didn't have any friends.

But readers knew that he actually did have friends. Not just Linus; but later on also Peppermint Patty and Marcie. Those two camped out outside the hospital when Charlie Brown got sick. That looks to me like pretty deeply felt friendship (at least).

Readers should have got the impression that Charlie Brown was a victim more of his own insecurities than of his peers. (Certainly the case after Schultz fired Violet and Patty-the-elder.)

Does West Point have any religious symbols as decorations and if so, will they be covered so as not to offend Obama's Muslim sensibilities?

Obama giving a speech from West Point is kinda like Ahmedinejad giving a speech from St. Peter's Square.

Obama would be more at home in Berkeley giving his speech from high up in a Coast Live Oak. For effect, he could toss handfuls of Kashi down to the unwashed and ungroomed masses below as if it were Manna from Heaven. He could throw in some "Ohmmm, ohmmm" chants when the drum circles and hash pipes fire up. It would be a rockin' good time!

163 @OregonMuse,

He might very well have been a cheap bastard, but the rink was great. For all I know he made tons of money with it. Actually, good for him if he made money.

I think that all of this analysis of Peanuts and Schulz loses sight of the fact that in the end, there was a certain sweetness and kindness in the strips and the animated specials.

Posted by: NJConservative at November 30, 2009 10:40 AM (/Ywwg)

164 As for the Platonic goddess of beauty and happiness: Schultz had one, but it wasn't Sally. That's the Little Red-Haired Girl.

Well, I think Sally was more the epitome of Female Vanity, in the Classical sense: an empty-headed blonde with a gold-digger's heart. Her love for Linus is shallow and easily swayed; her appreciation for beauty is likewise shallow and based only on surfaces. Which makes her attraction to the stout and kind Linus a Classical conundrum as well.

The Little Red-Haired Girl, early on, had the same purpose as the Golden Fleece in Greek myth: an unattainable, beautiful, perfect object which exists to drive the protagonist onward in both a physical and moral sense. It was only later that she became a "person". The Peanuts strips of later years became less symbolic because Schulz had to deal with backstories, love triangles, and a bit of topicality (Snoopy's "Joe Cool" phase).

But Peanuts never lost that existential despair that was Charlie Brown's life. When he succeeded (rarely), it was by chance or the capricious kindness of Fate; it was never by his own agency. Linus' role was to act as the Chorus (as in a Greek tragedy): to explicate and illuminate the tragedy of Charlie Brown, and to drive home the moral of the story.

Actually, the network (I think it was ABC) tried very hard to cut the monologue.  Schultz (a committed Christian) told them that Linus' speech was the crux of the whole cartoon and either it stayed or he was going to kill the entire thing.  The network had already sunk a lot of money (for the era) and so backed down.  I always admired him for that.

The other thing I read is that even as he got older, he refused to farm out tasks like lettering or inking to someone else (which is a pretty common practice).  He did not want anyone else to touch his creation.  Even as he knew he was going down, each strip was entirely his own creation.

As for the Corps sitting on their hands...some will.  As a plebe, I requested permission from my table commandant to not clap for Hillary when she made an appearance there, which he freely granted (I had to ask permission to breathe at that table).  There were some left leaners when I was around, but most of the Corps will probably politely look his direction, thousand yard stare firmly in place, whilst they dream of the upcoming Christmas leave.

He spent almost five hours at the White House taping the ad with Obama, Troy Polamalu and some kids.

245 runningrn:

Umberto Eco (of The Name of the Rose and Foucault's Pendulum fame) wrote a really great preface to one of the Peanuts volumes a number of years ago, and raised most of the points I brought up here. One of the most trenchant things he pointed out was that the very first Peanuts strip was an existential attack on Charlie Brown. Two children, a boy and a girl, are sitting on a curb when they see Charlie Brown coming along. The boy says something like, "Here comes Charlie Brown. Good ol' Charlie Brown." Then, when Charlie Brown has passed by, the boy says (apropos of nothing), "How I hate him!"

The very first emotion attributed to poor Charlie is inchoate hatred. Heavy stuff for the very first strip. How many protagonists are introduced this way?

I think this is what elevated Peanuts beyond any other strips of the time, and gives it a surprising depth. It's "humor" was basically existential despair cloaked in the social lives of children and anthropomorphic animals. It dealt with a universe that, when not uncaring, was often explicitly hostile.
