'Tis the season for Republicans to crap on America's favorite Obama—yes, we're talking about Bo Obama, the First Dog. Yes, half-term Governor Sarah Palin thought it was "odd" that the Obamas' family holiday card featured the adorable pup (and his "signature") and Senator John McCain said Obama should be leading, not taking Bo shopping (video) for Christmas presents. But liberal MSNBC host Ed Schultz took aim at the criticisms by pointing out some classic GOP hypocrisy.

Schultz, accompanied by an adorable beagle named Rex, noted that former President George W. Bush made numerous popular videos of his dogs Barney and Miss Beazley. Amusingly, Rex became agitated after clips of Republicans aired!

And it turns out that Rex and his sister are up for adoption at the Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn. Dawww!
