Don’t worry, Sarah Palin, I fixed the Obama Christmas card

Fox News and Sarah Palin, of late, have been expressing concern at the horrifying lack of Christmas and Faith-Based Values in the Obama family’s Christmas card this year.

Where’s the “family, faith, and freedom”? Palin asked.

Where indeed? All I see is a dog (unbeliever) and some poinsettia leaves — not even a seasonal pine! It’s as though they expressly designed it to gratify Richard Dawkins. And the message just reads, “From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season.”

That could be a Hanukkah card! Perhaps it is. Admittedly, this would make it the worst Hanukkah card ever, but it is possible.

Fortunately, I’m here to fix these things!

Here’s a Christmas card I think Fox News will have no problem with.

Artistic license. (MS Paint.)

You’re welcome, America.
