Sarah Palin criticizes the White House Christmas card

SRSLY? She crawls out of the shadows for this?

Former half-term Alaska Governor Sarah Palin attacked the White House holiday card in an article on Fox News Radio.

The front of the card shows the Obamas’ dog, Bo, sitting in a very Christmas-like setting, with a fireplace decorated with wreaths and red ribbons, and a table with a poinsettia plant and presents. “From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season,” reads the inside of the card, which is signed by the Obamas (including Bo).

Palin characterized the card as “odd”:

“It’s odd,” she said, wondering why the president’s Christmas card highlights his dog instead of traditions like ‘family, faith and freedom.'”

Palin said a majority of Americans prefer “American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree.” With regard to the card, she added, “It’s just a different way of thinking coming out of the White House.”

I personally think the card is very nice and tasteful. Very traditional Americana-esque.

I’m not sure how Ms. Palin comes to her assessment of what “a majority of Americans” want on their Christmas cards. Hard to imagine she’s done some research on the subject – especially when we know she doesn’t like to read much.
