S.Luggo Does Rahm get his own waterboard? choinski So in nine years Bradley Whitford and Jeremy Piven will play them in the Oliver Stone biopic “O” ? I can’t wait for all the angst-y rapid fire obscenity-laden cell phone conversation scenes. And Obama’s executive secretary has to be a gay asian man . . . .or Lily Tomlin. shortsshortsshorts DUH. If he hadn’t taken the job, he would be sleeping at the bottom of the Chicago River with a terrorist bomb strapped to his chest and William Ayers at the riverbank shouting “COMMUNIST JIHAD.” SuperRounder I guess Senator Emanuel didn’t have enough oomph to it. Not_So_Much This is a good thing. He’s an ass-kicker. [re=168956]CivicHoliday[/re]: Exactly — he needs his team to jump in with both feet. If he really is able to build a political coalition, I think Lugar will end up regretting being such an ass-hat by preemptively turning down a SecState position before it was offered. freakishlystrong Ok, we have Rahm and Barack in the Whitehouse, how long till the wingies start dismantling that? Servo Only after he said pretty please. problemwithcaring F’ing tease. Terry [re=168965]SuperRounder[/re]: …or being Obama’s enforcer just suited his skills set better. Vewol Mevemont Damn it. It’s bad etiquette to the kiss our stomachs for hours or days before getting down to business. Blue Balls — Rahm — it’s a real condition, and it hurts. Larry Fine It looks like this administration will be run from Jerusalem. jagorev A Muslin and a Jew and a Joe Biden working together to lead the free world? Will wonders never cease? SayItWithWookies Rahm wasn’t being coy — he just had some Swiss bank accounts to clear out or something. After this, it’s pure steamroller. magic titty You think John Kerry’s resume for Sec. of State omits the part where he lost the election to GWB in ’04? dano [re=168965]SuperRounder[/re]: White House chief of staff offers a lot more opportunities to scream obscenities at people than any other job in government. jagorev [re=168978]Larry Fine[/re]: Or, at a minimum, will turn towards Jerusalem to pray 6 times a day. NoWireHangers Sexxxxxy! norbizness Who has dibs on his Congressional seat? Willie Gault? problemwithcaring [re=168982]magic titty[/re]: He omitted it before he added it again. Giant Robot OTS – I’m listening to Rush right now… MAN is he pissed off at moderate republicans!! Serolf Divad Oh, man this is starting to really sink in. Kick ass! I can’t wait for the stories about all the half-full spitoons, gay porn mags under loose floorboards and hollowed out Bibles hiding baggies of cocaine that will be found, left behind by the previous occupants of the Whitehouse. Servo [re=168997]Giant Robot[/re]: About what!? He hates McCorpse and threw him under the bus on his first running. mattbolt “Oh, Barack, you know I shouldn’t… I’ve got a wife and kids now… I need time to think…” Barack gently pressed one of his strong, ebony hands on the slim shoulders of the silver-haired congressman. “Come on, Rahmy. One last time.” “You bring out the worst in me…” Emanuel coyly whispered, as he grasped the slim Hawaiian’s hand. “I accept. Now take me. Take me, Goddamnit. All the way to the White House…” he muttered, leaning in closer, his voice full of breathy passion, “… take me now.” StrangelyBrown See, Sarah? That’s how you give an offer full consideration. StripesAndPlaids And his name shall be calleth, RAHM! EMANUEL! The mighty Dem, the everlasting bad ass, The CHIEF of Staff. Tommy Says Soooo [re=168978]Larry Fine[/re]: That’s okay. They’ll open a consulate in Brighton Beach. TGY WaitLemmeThinkAboutItOK! V572625694 The teasing is a bit unbearably coy. When Barry calls and says, “I need you to help fulfill my vision,” or, “Your country needs you — no one else can do what you can do,” who could say no? Giant Robot [re=169003]Servo[/re]: Moderate Repubs are blaiming Palin for blowing the election. Also, Rush says Obama hired a Jew to show he’s not a muslin which means, of course, that he IS a muslin… doh!! wx insider He just wanted to make sure the job came with a whore azw88 The repub leader-dude that spoke @ some press club deal yesterday said that picking Emmanuel wold signal that Obama wasn’t really changing how things were done in DC, since he has been very very partisan in the House. I say you WANT a strong-willed person as you COS to help ram legislation through, especially if you are pushing bills that your own party doesn’t like. And the fact that he is a Jew, proves that he is all about fiscal responsibility, because we all know how cheap the Jews are. His next appointment will be to have s Scot appointed treasury Sec’ty. Need a thrifty MoFo running that agency! Alex Trebeks Girl Rush is saying that because he wants to control the REpublican party and not admit that he and Palin are psycho S.Luggo [re=168975]Terry[/re]: His father was a member of the Irgun.

I got shit here I’m fucking tryin’ to pass through fucking congress.” Servo [re=169015]Giant Robot[/re]: Funny. Only a few weeks ago, they thought she was the greatest thing since bathroom stalls. WadISay “Chicago Mafia” just sounds more effective than “Arkansas Mafia” or “Georgia Mafia.” Wag Das Hund [re=168968]Not_So_Much[/re]: I think “Lugar” is German for “Ass Hat”. azw88 O come, o come Emmanuel and ransom captive Capitol (hill) Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee Obama! O COME, O COME, EMMANUEL Rodney Badger [re=169015]Giant Robot[/re]: That’s rad. I read something this morning about how Obama overperformed Kerry by only 4 points among the Jewish vote and that this was proof that the Jews hate Obama. The only proper response to Republican talking points for the next four years will be to laugh until you pass out. Naked Bunny with a Whip Cool. Okay, everyone, knock off work early. I’ll see you Monday. Rush Given all the nice comments on this thread about me, I am providing a special photo to all my liberal fans http://blog.wired.com/cultofmac/_thesuddencurve_images_limbaugh_oxycontin.jpg Mega Ditto’s eoberhauser [re=169035]azw88[/re]: my ALL TIME fav xmas song!! Love it! BobLoblawLawBlog [re=168988]NoWireHangers[/re]: Yup yup. Serious panty-creaming material, this White House is shaping up to be. loislane1939 He really only needed like two days tops to mock his brother and kill like, twenty people, before agreeing. This administration is going to be four years of porno for me. illnoise Right on. FreshCliches [re=169009]StripesAndPlaids[/re]: Oh thou, that tellest good tidings to Zionists; arise, shine, for thy Hopey has come. azw88 [re=169050]eoberhauser[/re]: one of mine too. We used to sing it when I attended Parochial school (St. Michael’s Episcopal in Tucson). DoctorCulturae Inquirers want to know what extras he got out of Preznit-elect Hopesman during his stall: a special ass-kicking device? tuition for his kids? a golden muzzle for his wife? norbizness Rush: Are you sure you aren’t Birchibald T. Barlow? NotthatLC Yeah, I’m a geek, but Bravo has been playing the last season of West Wing all month, and seriously, the writers must be freaking. OUT: – They based Jimmy Smits character, Matt Santos, on Obama, after he made his speech in 2004. – Santos wins, so does Obama, two years later. – The character of Josh Lyman was based on Rahm Emanuel. After the election, Josh becomes Santos’ chief of staff. – The night of the election, Santos’s older white running mate, who’d also been a mentor and long-time supporter, dies. The analogy to Obama’s grandmother dying the day before the election might be a bit of a stretch, but it was still weird enough for me to go, “WTF??”. Also, to get back on topic – Rahm Emanuel kicks much ass and is pretty damn hot. If he and Barry are going to be showing up at a lot of places together, we’re ALL going to have to invest in sunglasses just to fight off the glare. I approve. StrangelyBrown [re=169019]azw88[/re]: Reggie White? I thought you were dead! hedgehog Joe’s getting a new desk next to Milton’s in the basement choinski [re=169101]NotthatLC[/re]: Dammit! I was making the same list: West Wing plot or 2008 Election? The Democrat was a non-white male from Congress with a simple, suburban background and fairly recent political resume. The Democrat is young, has two adorable children and strong-willed photogenic wife. The Democrat wins the nomination after long, divided party fight with the establishment candidate. The Republican was an old, counter-party maverick who reluctantly and gradually sold his soul to obtain reluctant party backing. Russia invaded a neighboring country during the campaign. A last minute major catastrophe (economic collapse / nuclear accident) ruins it for the Republican, who is tangentially implicated in a minor contributing role. The two candidates are called to the White House to deal with a crisis. The Democrat faces the death of mother figure /father figure the eve of the election. The Democrat wins, and Rahm Emanuel/Josh Lyman becomes Chief of Staff. TBD: Who’s sleeping with the press secretery in the White House (Gannon/McClellan?) huffybike Guess his family was okay with moving to D.C.: http://tinyurl.com/69h9xq Blue Jefferson Clinton the Cat Okay am I the only one who thought that his “this is a lot to think over, I have a wife and kids to consider” excuse was code for “Uh, I have a sex scandal that is about to break, maybe now isn’t a good time…” Damn Republican (and John Edwards) sex scandals have completely jaded me…. FreshCliches House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement after the announcement that Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) would be President-Elect Barack Obama’s White House chief of staff: “This is an ironic choice for a President-elect who has promised to change Washington, make politics more civil, and govern from the center.” I look forward to Rep. Boehner’s reminder that he is now the bottom in this relationship. PoliTacky [re=169001]Serolf Divad[/re]: Do you think they’re going to pry all the O‘s off the keyboards before they leave? sanantonerose [re=168973]problemwithcaring[/re]: That’s what I said about his half a finger! Obamaton [re=169032]WadISay[/re]: Thats because it is. smellyal8r Hooray! This guy is perfect for Hopey. All you libs who thought this administration was going to be run by the Care Bears need to get over this hire. Rahm Emmanuel is a certified hard ass who will bring it to the Rs and Ds who try to overreach or test this President. Remember, after Election Day Congress cares about one thing…getting re-elected. They have NO vested interest in making Hopey look good (sadly, not even the Democrats). Emmanuel knows that, knows a million secrets and isn’t afraid to use them. For you West Wing freaks, Leo served in the House, as I recall (so did Bartlett) before he became Secretary of Labor. Then he chaired Bartlett for America before becoming WHCOS. Plus, Rahm is about 30 years younger than Leo. Rielle Hunter Rahm is a big time DO. Previous articleRahm Emanuel Is Very CoyNext articleNYT Electoral Map Porn Is Here!
