Easter, one of Christendom's holiest days, is the latest sword wielded in the campaign to demonstrate that President Barack Obama is not the Christian he claims to be.
Fox News on Monday ran a story pointing out that Obama failed to release a statement or a proclamation recognizing the national observance of Easter Sunday, while the White House did release statements in 2010 recognizing three major Muslim holidays.
Washington Monthly's Steve Benen calls it a "garbage story," and notes that when reporters at a White House briefing brought up the issue Monday, press secretary Jay Carney "quite literally laughed at the question."
Carney also noted, in that news briefing, that the president did attend Easter services with his family. And over at HuffPost Politics, you can learn that previous presidents also did not issue Easter proclamations.
