Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009 I was intrigued by Jimmy Carter’s Chanukah message to the Jewish community, delivered via JTA, which provided a real insight into what makes him a decent human being – and made him a wretched failure as a president and Middle East policy analyst, which he fancies himself to be.

Almost lost in all the ink expended over the health care reform fracas on Capitol Hill was last week's introduction of a long-delayed immigration reform bill by House Democrats.  That should please a number of Jewish groups that have made such legislation a priority.

I've been a fan of The Prairie Home Companion since it went national, though I confess I often hit the “off” switch when host Garrison Keillor starts to sing,  so I don't exactly know what to make of his column this week in Salon – which also appeared in newspapers around the country.

Keillor is complaining about a Unitarian rewrite of the Christmas song “Silent Night” that pretty much removes all the Christian content.

The Great Barack Obama Chanukah Party Wars continued today with angry blogs and op-eds, almost all of  which can be distilled down into two basic positions: either this president dislikes Jews and the guest list is a deliberate snub, or he is set to have the best and most bipartisan White House Chanukah party ever.

I'm guessing tonight's party won't be the end of it.
