RAHMBO - First Blood

Hot on the heels of his new "shoot from the lip" boss...

President-elect Barack Obama's White House chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel has apologised to the US-Arab community for remarks made by his father.

Benjamin Emanuel told an Israeli newspaper that his son, who is Jewish, would "obviously influence the president to be pro-Israel".

He also referred to Arabs in a way which a leading Arab-American group called an "unacceptable smear".
I dunno... whatever happened to "let the healing begin"?
"Obviously he'll influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn't he? What is he, an Arab? He's not going to be mopping floors at the White House."
Oops.

"The discovery that Hussein didn't have weapons after all surprises me, but it doesn't change my view of the essential issue."

"I never thought the key question was what weapons he actually possessed but rather what intentions he had."
P.S. -- I guess he changed his mind, huh?

Priceless, simply priceless.. the problem with setting yourself up as the only "pure and honourable" politician, is that the reality of politics is going to make the mistakes of himself and his supporters so much more offensive and glaring.

Leftnik or dumbstick? He must find it hard to walk with a fence up his bum. Obfuscate, that'll get him out of it, anti-Harper people would never want to hear what he thinks anyhow, they're pro-Obama types.
