Even their Christmas card is obnoxious!

January 4, 2007 09:37 AM

The Washington Post reports...

The senator from Massachusetts and his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, sent out 75,000 Christmas cards with pictures of trees at each season. The Kerrys gushed over their "gratitude for the beauty of these trees and the life they represent."

Okay, that message doesn't have anything to do with Christmas, but ignoring that: 

The card came in an odd-looking envelope, one of those with a return-mail flap and instructions to send it to . . . well, to a recycling company, so "it can be made into new carpet tile."

What?  Made into new carpet tile?  Yes, the card actually instructs you to:

"1. Remove this panel and insert it along with the card into the envelope. 2. Expose adhesive strip and fold the flap over to seal the envelope. 3. Drop this mailer into any U.S. mailbox."

With everything there is to do around the holidays, who the hell has time to turn John Kerry's Christmas card into carpet tile?

Slow carping day, Lois???? Your pettiness is astounding. Read that as obnoxious. Are you a Nancy Grace/Ann Coulter wannabe?

No Jim, she's pretty much got it down. What are you, some "alpha male" wannabe?
