The White House: No Christmas card

The White House
Sarah Palin has no holiday cheer for the latest holiday greeting card to come from the White House.
The former Alaska governor focused her ire on the fact that the card does not mention the word "Christmas" and focuses on Bo, the First Dog, sitting by a fireplace.
The inside of the card reads, "From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season." It also features the presidential seal.
The front has Bo lying next to a fireplace. There is holiday greenery over the fireplace mantle and presents underneath a poinsettia on a table, but no Christmas tree.
"It's odd," Palin told FOX News Radio , asking why the card focuses on the dog instead of traditions like "family, faith and freedom."
Mean while in other news, Kwanzaa seemed to fair pretty well.....
 Statement by the President and First Lady on Kwanzaa

Michelle and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season. Today marks the beginning of the week-long celebration honoring African American heritage and culture through the seven principles of Kwanzaa -- unity, self determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. We celebrate Kwanzaa at a time when many African Americans and all Americans reflect on our many blessings and memories over the past year and our aspirations for the year to come. And even as there is much to be thankful for, we know that there are still too many Americans going through enormous challenges and trying to make ends meet. But we also know that in the spirit of unity, or, we can overcome those challenges together. As families across America and around the world light the red, black, and green candles of the Kinara this week, our family sends our well wishes and blessings for a happy and healthy new year.
