Tweet of the Day: Happy Passover from guess who?

The Passover seder is the ritual meal celebrated on the first two nights of the 8-day-long Jewish festival. It is tradition that the youngest celebrant at each meal ask the “four questions,” the most famous of which is “Why is this night different from all other nights?”

The question that might be asked of the official White House tweet wishing the nation’s 5.3 million Jews a Happy Passover is not how it is different from all other White House tweets commemorating some occasion: it is decidedly of a piece with all others. Instead, the question should be, “Who is going to insert Barack Obama’s image into every presidential salutation after he’s gone?”

Maybe he should write an executive order mandating that all of his successors in the Oval Office take care to include his image with the same fidelity he has accorded this task. It has become a self-perpetuation of a joke on the most egotistical human ever to preside over the country. In this iteration, Obama is shown at a seder surrounded by presumed Jews (unidentified in the tweet) and his family.
