• Rahm Emanuel Apologizes for Making an Unflattering Comparison

    Here's why you almost have to love Rahm Emanuel, in spite of everything you un-love about him…

    First there's this

    Mr. Emanuel showed up at a weekly strategy session featuring liberal groups and White House aides. Some attendees said they were planning to air ads attacking conservative Democrats who were balking at Mr. Obama's health-care overhaul. "F—ing retarded," Mr. Emanuel scolded the group, according to several participants.

    Then, for his encore

    A White House official emails that Rahm Emanuel has acknowledged calling liberal Democrats "retarded" and apologized for the remark. "Rahm called Tim Shriver [of The Special Olympics]  Wednesday to apologize and the apology was accepted," the official said…

    A Democrat points out Rahm apologized to Shriver, but not to the liberals he called "retarded."

    So, as Instapundit keenly points out

    Rahm Emanuel compares Democrats to retarded people, then apologizes to retarded people.

    There's a sort of beautiful poetry in that.
