Jewish groups are alternately outraged and amused by an invitation issued by the White House for a Hanukkah reception: the printed card features a painting of the White House Christmas tree being delivered as the President and Laura kiss under the mistletoe and Cheney stalking Rudolph in the background.

Sally McDonough, a Special Assistant to President Bush, and Laura Bush's press secretary, blamed a "staff mistake" for the gaffe, noting "it is just something that fell through the cracks, like last year's Easter Bunny delivering eggs during Passover or the Leprehaun dancing around the Star of David on the birthday card sent to Joe Lieberman."

"OK, OK! There was also that one of Moses seeing his shadow and predicting six more weeks of wandering in the desert."

One recipient called the Christmas theme "absolutely bizarre", and said it "belongs right in that spoofy satire on the internet." (Israel National News).
