War on Xmas, Part II

Sadly, it seems that I have not made the White House Christmas Holiday card list yet again this year.

"Holiday?" you ask. "Holiday? What happened to Christmas? Is our dear holiday not under siege? And has not Dear Leader joined Bill O'Reilly in the brave counter-offensive?

Apparently not. According to my sources at Salon magazine,
you won't find the word "Christmas" anywhere on this joint production of Hallmark and the Republican National Committee. On the outside of the card, there's a Jamie Wyeth painting of a rather lonely-looking White House in the snow. On the inside, the president and the missus send us -- or somebody, anyway -- their "best wishes for a holiday season of hope and happiness."
And, they note, there is a Bible passage inside, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the birth of Baby Jesus. It is from the Old Testament!!!!!

Personally, I prefer last year's card:

Addebdum: the White House cards have gone out, and the Right seems to have noticed something missing.
