“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 the majority of Americans can appreciate the more traditional, “American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree.”Palin may find the card odd, but I think it is odd to associate "American foundational values" with something that withers and dies in our living room.
This was the offending Christmas Card:
I don't know about you, but I like this card. The room looks cozy and the poinsettias and the evergreen on the mantle certainly indicate that it is a Christmas card. I have no problem with highlighting Bo. I like Bo. He is the only member of the Obama household that would happy to see me if I showed up unannounced in the White House living quarters. Sure it would be nice if the card included something religious, but I rather doubt that a non-religious Christmas card is an affront to God. Pick your battles and leave Bo alone.
