The Mercatus Center's Rob Raffety - Reason TV viewers know him as Uncle Sugar - flagged what is surely (read: hopefully) the worst goddamned holiday video you will ever see this Christmas or any other.

Titled "Public Elves," it's a production of OMB Watch, a nonprofit that is dedicated to lifting a veil of secrecy about government - while kissing its ass at the same time.

Just remember: Anything good that happens to you over the next week (such as driving across non-collapsing bridges or eating non-toxic turkeys) is a direct result of government action. And anything bad that happens? Well, that's somebody else's fault.
