Tea Party activists are calling for a boycott of Hallmark Cards because of the above graduation message. Hallmark is already apologizing.
In a Hallmark statement, the card giant says, “Humor is a funny thing. What makes one person chuckle can be puzzling, or even off-putting, to the next, and there can be a fine line between edgy and startling, between gently playful and boringly safe.” Hallmark then provide an apology to anyone who is offended by the Obama graduation card. “We know that some people have expressed concerns about one of our humor cards that references President Obama and tea parties. “That line of cards has successfully poked fun at both sides of the political debate for many years. It is never our intent to offend anyone. “We apologize if anyone was offended.”
