Rachel Maddow Mocks FOX News and Sarah Palin's Outrage Over the Evil Obama Christmas Card: VIDEO


FOX News and Sarah Palin are outraged that the Obama's Christmas card features a dog (!) and a poinsettia (!) and fails to mention 'Christmas' in the message inside what Maddow calls "the evil, dog-themed Christmas card" (which you can see below).

FOX News:

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told Fox News & Commentary that she found the card to be a bit unusual.

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

“Even stranger than that was his first year in office when the Christmas ornaments included Chairman Mao,” Palin said. “People had to ask that it be removed because it was offensive.”...

...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.”

As for the Obama card, she replied, “It’s just a different way of thinking coming out of the White House.”

Watch Maddow's segment, AFTER THE JUMP...

On a side note, I love hearing Rachel scream, "How dare they?"

  1. Who cares what Palin thinks. She is a nit wit! She's probably never received a card from the White House. For the past several years, most cards have been of scenes from around the house. The Bush family I believe had their dog Barney on one....did she complain then?

  3. Gawd, I thought we were through with Palin. She needs to shut her hole & worry about her legal problems.

  4. God, I love her.

  5. If she doesn't think the dog represents family, that says more about her than it does the Obamas.

  6. Well, according to GOP TV, Rachel IS an evil vampire lesbian, so how can we take her at her word?!

    Good God. These asshats at Faux News are worthless racist shrill hacks, nothing more.

  7. @brian#1: Palin did not complain about the Bush cards showing their dogs romping in the snow because no one had ever heard of her so no one ever asked if she had any thought. And now we all know she doesn't.

    It's the only thing I really miss about the Bush years -- Sarah Palin kind of didn't exist.

  8. I adore Maddow, and I think the Obama card is simply gorgeous. Its warm and tasteful and Sarah Palin just needs a big fist full of "Shut the F*** up" shoved down her throat. Mama Grizzly... shouldn't you be hibernating this time of year? Storing up food and fat so you can come out in the Spring and have more of your daughter's babies? Ok... maybe that last bit was unnecessary.

  9. I think Maddow was just snarky enough, because FOX and their ilk deserve nothing less than derision in the tone of one's voice when discussing them. FOX earned the snark by creating a non-story and unfounded outrage.

  10. You gotta love Rachel! She has such a joyous enjoyment of the joy of the season! Finding mirth wherever she looks on Fox News.

    Sarah Palin's cards probably feature dead animals she shot.

  11. The clowns at Faux News and Sarah Quaylin need an enema.

  12. Hey David in NYC, If we don't call them on it, they will keep it up. It's time we point them out to the rest of the world and show them on how STUPID they really are.

  13. Beautiful Christmas card, absolutely lovely. Palin is a hate monger.

  14. Love Maddow... loving Obama more and more. Love the dog and the card. Palin can just stuff a mooseburger in it.

  15. God she's just the best person on the freaking planet. I could just watch Maddow all day.

  16. She should work for Hallmark!

  18. Andy, you don't often add a side note, so I had to watch this one. You're right, "how dare they?" Plus that was hysterical.

  19. Rachel cannot simply call them assholes, DAVID IN NYC, because: ONE - The FCC does not allow for the word assholes, and TWO - if Rachel Maddow, and others of her ilk, did away with snarkiness, presenting instead uber-succinctness they would be lucky to fill fifteen minutes of time let alone forty-five to fifty minutes of air time.

    And without Rachel Maddow,and her captive audience, and all that glorious snarkiness, whom else could we live vicariously through, as she daily stands on her soap box saying all the things we wish we could say?

    Seriously though, I thought the Obama card was quite nice, pretty actually.

    Happy holidays and God bless us everyone!

  20. It's all so silly.

  21. Why doesn't the moron Palin rail against serial adulterer Newt Gingrich instead of this childish nonsense. Believe me, if it weren't for Obama being president and a black one at that, this wouldn't be a blip on the radar with these right wing radical republican scumbags.

  22. Rachel nails it, Snap!

  23. Rachel is so great.

  24. Palin would have preferred a card that speaks to the America she loves.
    you know, like a picture with an unwed fat cum-drinking teen daughter in the corner reluctantly feeding the baby she didn't want to have..... a husband, in the background, holding a gun and a beer, and those other kids, you know, who were born to help with chores.

    yeah. that's a real American Christmas.

  25. Palin probably wonders why Bo hasn't been taxidermied and made into a rug.
