Nothing Says "Christmas at the White House" Like Chairman Mao

What a difference a year makes!(Originally published Tuesday, December 22, 2009) There is no accounting for taste, but this may rise to new levels of tastelessness:

So, the Bush administration honors Teddy Roosevelt in 2008 with an ornament and the Obama administration honors Chairman Mao, and presumptuously puts Obama's face on Mt. Rushmore...

Merry Christmas, and God bless us each and every one. We're gonna need it!

Update: Did I say "new levels of tastelessness"? I missed the ornament featuring the transvestite! Because nothing really says Christmas like your transvestite ornament!

  1. Unfortunately it is true (and indicative of the president's nature). Here's a link to Fox News from 2009

    I'll add this link to the post.
