Blue Mountain is a popular site for free greeting cards and is used to send out birthday wishes, anniversary wishes and many more. On Valentine's Day they decided to get political with one of their electronic love notes. It was dominating to say the least. For some odd reason there was nothing out there that ripped Republicans but they certainly went after Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Howard Dean and others in the Democratic party.
The card was crude to say the least. It featured Nancy as a dominatrix that kept various Democrats on a chain leash while the card mentioned that the new party in power was set to throw out family values. Well when the wind whipped the card around the Internets a few of us got pissed off. I wanted to see the Republican version and sent them this email:
I saw the Democratic bondage card of yours tonight, very cute. It seems that you were implying that Democrats are throwing family values out the window. To me, that exposes your political motivation in making the card. So
where's the corrupt and kinky Republican edition?
Unfortunately they did not send me the card I was looking for. Instead they pulled the card from their inventory and sent me this copy-pasted reply instead:

Political satire is certainly popular Joshua M. Though when you repeat Republican talking points that disparage Democrats, it is only funny for a few sick bastards on the right. You can see they pulled the ad when you click on the link, its gone.
