Barry Picks Chicago Political Nepotism Rich Guy At Random For Chief of Staff

“Two administration officials tell The Associated Press that William Daley will be the next White House chief of staff.” Yes, Barack Obama has replaced Chicago politician Rahm Emanuel with Chicago politician Bill Daley, so America has a new chief of staff to help its president fight its Congress. Obama was really thinking creatively with this hire. “Bring me a box of every single American that is capable of doing this job,” he said. “Then take out everyone who isn’t rich. Then take out everyone who isn’t an executive of an investing firm that is also a bank. Then take out everyone who isn’t from Chicago. Then take out everyone who isn’t from that city’s most powerful political family. And then I will pick from that box COMPLETELY AT RANDOM.” He’s shaking things up.

Rahm Emanuel Finally Resigns For ‘Not Leaving Baby Trig Alone’

Rahm Emanuel quits! He is slated to leave for Chicago as early as this Friday — which means he’s probably loadin’ up his U-Haul at this very moment. This is pretty much headline news around the globe but we decided to give the “hat tip” to The Politico because they know who’s replacing Rahm. Leon Panetta! No, that doesn’t sound right. Maybe Tom Daschle? Maybe. What will probably happen is: Barack Obama will take Leon Panetta’s birth certificate, Tom Daschle’s noodle and John Podesta’s sexy hardbody and make a Chief of Staff Frankenstein Monster. That is our best guess. [The Politico] Read more on Rahm Emanuel Finally Resigns For ‘Not Leaving Baby Trig Alone’… Read more on Rahm Emanuel Finally Resigns For ‘Not Leaving Baby Trig Alone’…

Rahm Emanuel Is Going To Be the President Obama Of Chicago

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said today that he won’t run for re-election in 2011. But wait, the blogosphere remembered, doesn’t Rahm Emanuel want that job? DRUDGE SIRENS! “I would like to run for the mayor of the city of Chicago.” That is something Rahm told Charlie Rose one time! And then Chris Cillizza called up the guy who was at the White House fixing the Obama kids’ swing set today: “A senior Obama Administration official said Emanuel is likely to run for the post. ‘I’d be shocked if he doesn’t run,’ the official said.” Now we can move on to guessing who will fill Rahm’s spot at the White House, and then we can speculate who will fill that person’s job, etc. etc. etc. Read more on Rahm Emanuel Is Going To Be the President Obama Of Chicago…

Rahm Emanuel Is Very Coy

Possible next White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is being terribly cruel to his fan base by reminding them that he is already married, with children. “I do know something about the White House and I have children now. I have a family,” he told WLS-TV in Chicago. These “children” of his might require more of his time or something, more time than a Chief of Staff could really afford, so he might have to stick with his day job of being a huge dick to all his colleagues in the House of Representatives. Why is he playing so hard to get? Read more on Rahm Emanuel Is Very Coy…

Rahm Emanuel, Next White House Chief Of Staff?

Hmm, very interesting! Rahm Emanuel loudly pooh-poohed Howard Dean’s 50-state strategy — you know, the deal where you actually pretend that states besides Ohio and Florida matter in electing a president — and now he has been offered the job of Chief of Staff to that same strategy’s biggest benefactor, Barack Obama. Of course Emanuel is from Chicago, just like Barack Obama, so he is well versed in CHICAGO-STYLE POLITICS (i.e. cooking deep-dish pizzas for William Ayers in Tony Rezko’s slum kitchens, with Louis Farrakhan).
