President and First Lady Bush recently sent Jewish community leaders invitations to a Hanukkah reception at the White House next month. But as the New York Post reports, the invitations "raised more than a few eyebrows" because the image on them was that of a "Clydesdale horse hauling a Christmas fir along the snow-dappled drive to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave":
