Illustration for article titled Palins Problem With White House Holiday Card

Even President Obama's staunchest political opponents will be touched by the friendly White House holiday card featuring a cozy image of Bo, the First Dog, lounging by a fireplace and the message, "From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season."


Right? Wrong. At least if you're Sarah Palin.

"It's odd," she said, wondering why the president's card highlighted his dog instead of traditions like "family, faith and freedom." (We didn't actually realize that Bo was against all those things — and we're dying to know how you depict "freedom" on a holiday card.)


She added that a majority of Americans would have preferred "American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree." Right — except it was a holiday card for Americans of all faiths, celebrating the entire season, not a Christmas card.

Her read-between-the-lines conclusion: "It's just a different way of thinking coming out of the White House." Wonder how long she spent looking for anything that could have been construed as Muslim imagery.

For someone who seems to consider herself an authority on how to properly acknowledge the holidays, Palin sure seems to be having a really hard time getting into the spirit.
