From Left in Aboite
Most folks have focused on the anti-Democrat spin, but I find this also exceptionally disturbing and distasteful in its' disrespect for women in positions of authority - essentially stating that women who have worked their way into a position of power are whores and domineering bitches.
As the folks at American Greetings seem singularly unconcerned about this (per my telephone conversation with their offices), I will be contacting their advertisers (information below) and will do no business with American Greetings.
American Greetings subsidiary trashes Democrats
National greeting card company carrying 'Love Democratic style' card with Pelosi, others in bondage . . .
This Valentine's Day, one of the nation's largest greeting card companies is circulating a satirical online greeting card that depicts "Love Democratic Style" as "throwing family values out the window" and depicts House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dressed as a dominatrix and Sen. Hillary Clinton as a maid. A similar "Love Republican Style" card could not be located at the company's website.
The short eCard from the company plays a jingle for about 30 seconds with a variety of colorful images of Democratic political leaders in compromising situations:
--The eCard first depicts an image of Senator Hillary Clinton dressed in maid garb.
--It then proceeds to show former Governor Howard Dean and Senator John Kerry both wearing dog collars.
--Several Democratic 'newbies' are then shown.
--A photograph of Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid follows with his face beneath a high heel, and the declaration that family values have been thrown "out the window".
--An image of bondage gear is then shown, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi then depicted in a dominatrix outfit while the associated jingle declares that "Love is free with Pelosi".
--The greeting card ends by wishing a "Happy VD".
RAW STORY, the source for this story, is awaiting comment from Democratic offices and American Greetings Interactive, the company that owns Blue Mountain. AGInteractive is owned by American Greetings, which says on its website that it is "one of the world's largest manufacturers of social expression products."
The eCard can be accessed at Blue Mountain's website.
