Mark Matuszak, L.A. Designer of Obamas' Holiday Card, Sees Thumbs-Down Critique From Sarah Palin

Turns out the Obamas' holiday card this year was designed by L.A. artist Mark Matuszak.
It's cozy and apropos, featuring First Dog Bo chillin' like a villain in front of a White House fireplace. Good work, Mark.
Except that even if President Obama were to bring back Jesus Christ himself to then turnaround the economy with a bolt of lightening and give us all $5,000 tax refund checks there would still be haters. Like this one:
Yeah, she no likey, calling the card "odd."
What's not to like?
Palin told Fox News that the card lacked traditional religious iconography such as ...
... American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree.
She said a holiday card should reflect ""family, faith and freedom."
The Obamas' card reads:
From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season.
Shiny happy "holidays?"
Too neutral, huh?
Remember, Obama's a Democrat with many friends, like Matuszak, in L.A. You're lucky the card doesn't say, "May your Prius continue to bring you satisfying mileage and low emissions."
