• Chicago Blues for Rahm Emanuel

    I know that you're going to find this hard to believe, but there's an ugly rumor going around political circles that there are some people in Washington who don't so much care for Rahm Emanuel. Some people even think he's doing a "fucking retarded" job as White House Chief of Staff.

    I know! It's all quite scandalous! And, to make matters worse, Sunday's Washington Post featured an article by Dana Milbank praising Rahm Emanuel's work as Chief of Staff and bashing every other hominid in government…

    Obama's first year fell apart in large part because he didn't follow his chief of staff's advice on crucial matters. Arguably, Emanuel is the only person keeping Obama from becoming Jimmy Carter.

    And, wouldn't you know it, but some people of a somewhat suspicious bent find this article to be a tad suspect

    Dana Milbank transcribed an article written by Rahm Emanuel yesterday in The Washington Post. Never has an article been more clearly written to support a political benefactor…

    This is basically Rahm saying on his way out, I was right all along and these guys were wrong. Maybe it's a last minute attempt at a Hail Mary to swing the decision in his favor if he can start a conversation in DC about how he had offered better advice than the other three to Obama (by the way, everything he claims to have been right about inside the article was disastrous advice that led Obama further and further away from his voters). But either way, that means he thinks he is very close to being on his way out the door.

    What? A Rahm-less White House?! What would we ever do without him?! Just imagine if we didn't have him holding the Democratic Party together this past year? Why they'd be in complete disarray and on the verge of losing their majority power in both houses! I can't even imagine what that would be like!
