Apparently, no Hallmark holiday is sacred anymore. Rather than sending chocolate and flowers to their sweethearts, the U.S.' two major political parties used today's Valentine's Day celebration as a jumping-off point for attacks on their opponents.

We will give both sides this, though: the things they produced are very well-made, and actually pretty amusing. After the jump, Valentine's Day cards from the Republican National Committee, going after Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and a Democratic National Committee video depicting John McCain and President Bush as each others' Valentines.
