President Obama is going to make the Jews love him if it’s the last thing he ever does.  His plan: get Regina Spektor to play White House.

"Having moved to America from Soviet Russia as a child with my family, we dreamed of reconnecting with our religious traditions and of making America our home" says Spektor. "Having lived here for over twenty years, it is an unimaginable honor to be invited to the White House by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, to an event celebrating Jewish Americans, and to be counted among them. Nothing in the world could make us feel more accepted and at home!"(Via Press Release)

 

Tomorrow, Spektor will be among a handful of V.I.J.’s (that’s Very Important Jews, in case you aren’t smart) hanging out with Barry, Michelle and Bo, to celebrate our favorite month of the year: Jewish Heritage Month!

We have only one question: did somebody forget to mention this whole thing to Rahm Emanuel?  We wouldn’t want want to piss him off.
