Advent 2005: With best wishes for a holiday season of hope and happiness

Behold, if you dare, what may possibly be the most controversial Christmas card ever printed! Yes, it's the 2005 White House Christmas card. Of course, it's not the inoccuous Jamie Wyeth painting of the White House that's causing the controversy, it's what's printed inside:

Yes, it's true: George W. Bush has declared war on Christmas! Sure, he tried to have it both ways by including a verse of scripture, but it doesn't even mention Jesus! What are we, a bunch of Jews or something? It's the New Testament or nothing with us, pal! As a Christian, this card disgusts me.*
