Happy Valentine's Day, from your loving political parties

Republicans and Democrats send Valentine's themed messages.

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.
