Bill Donohue comments on office Christmas parties:
Many label us conservative, but we’re not the uptight ones when it comes to the annual office Christmas party. We know how to party.
Helen Sorrentino of The Alternative Press advises employers to limit office parties to “a few hours.” I manifestly disagree—ours is open-ended and could go on all night. She says to “end the service of alcohol 30 minutes prior to the end the party.” No way—this is not a baseball game where you can’t get a beer after the seventh inning. Indeed, most of us grab a roadie before leaving.
Charles Purdy at the Orange County Register seconds the advice of some party pooper who says employees “should prepare a list of people it would be beneficial to talk to.” I recommend preparing a list of people you want to ignore—that way you can have a good time. “If you’re female,” he says, “dress conservative and make sure you’re not revealing bare arms or any cleavage.” As long as I am president of the Catholic League, I pledge never to author such a draconian policy.
