A "seder" is an ancient Jewish endurance contest where people gather around a table; drink awful, terrible wine; sing songs; eat foods inspired, in the most literal sense imaginable, by construction materials; and celebrate the liberation of Joe Lieberman's ancestors from Barack Obama's ancestors.
Obama will be the first president to host one tonight, and owing to an e-mail snafu from his press shop, which sent the presidential schedule out to reporters with internal annotations from White House staff, we now know that some Jews were upset:

Apparently Jewish here and in neighboring states are now calling wondering why they have not been invited.
You can't win with these people, Barack! So who was invited? A whole lot of goyim, including adviser Valerie Jarrett and personal assistant Reggie Love. His two highest profile Jewish staffers, Rahm Emmanuel and David Axelrod, aren't going to be there, according to the Huffington Post's guest list.
If every Jew in the tri-state area had been invited, we have it on good authority that they would have complained about how crowded it was.
