Not to cast aside the many Jewish fans of this cyber Wailing Wall (although you will love this one), but let’s all visit the imaginarium, shall we?

[Cue harp music]

Your parents have lit the Menorah and begin commemorating the victorious Maccabees those 2,500 years ago. The kids break out the lyrics to “I have a Dreidel” and begin begging “Mama” to fry up some latkes, flanken and gefilte fish (yeech). The eight small gifts are buried deep in the closet and the holy-days are festive.

You with me so far, Messianic Jews and Zionists alike? Now, let’s amp that example up to say you are the leader of the ADL or some highfalutin Rabbi with ties to the White House. You traipse out to your mailbox and crack open a card with a Presidential seal.

And inside, you see a Christmas tree and the phrase, “Merry Christmas”. What the…

the-bushs-last-christmas-cardWell, note the link from CNN and you’ll see that was one of Dubya’s final mistakes in office. DOH!

Yeah, the card (pictured here) would have been enough of a shock to make most of the recipients sport a Yuletide log of their own.

Mrs. Bush’s press secretary, Sally McDonough, attributed the snafu to a “staff mistake” in not printing separate cards for the different White House holiday events, as has been the custom in years past. “Mrs. Bush is apologetic, It is just something that fell through the cracks,” she said, referring to the role of the First Lady’s office in sending out the invitations.

Good thing, most of the generic “staff” has been sent out on the street with bags packed, otherwise, I’m sure some Yamikas would roll over this one.
