ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE: Rahm Emanuel.

November 9, 2008

HELLO, READERS. All five+ of you. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m creating a new feature here on OlyVil. Now that the election is over, there’s no more crazy campaign hijinks to discuss, and we all breathe a heavy sigh of relief. But FEAR NOT, we still have a great many things to cover for you (and Kim pointed out a few of them in this post).

In the spirit of not letting this blog die what with both the Olympics and the election season being over, the new feature we’re covering will be introducing to you all of the key figures that our new President-elect Obama will be appointing to his cabinet through the coming months until Inauguration Day. AAAAAAAND we’rerahm2 starting with, newly appointed Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.

Rahm Emanuel has been on the Washington scene for a while. He worked for five years as a senior advisor to President Clinton, and has been in the House of Representatives since 2003. This is all just fodder.

Right now, the comments coming from the press all say that Emanuel, a long-time friend of the President-elect, was chosen because he complements Obama’s cool-natured disposition, with his own fiery, angry, slightly insane attitude.

CAN I JUST SAY HOW MUCH I LOVE MEN IN POWER? POWERFUL MEN WHO ARE MAYBE JUST A LITTLE BIT EVIL? I fancy myself an informative, semi-serious blogger, but man. The stories I’ve been hearing about this Rahm Emanuel character make my london-london bridge wanna go DOWN, ladies. Por ejemplo:

  • On the night after the 1996 election, “Emanuel was so angry at the president’s enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign, grabbed a steak knife and began rattling off a list of betrayers, shouting ‘Dead! … Dead! … Dead!’ and plunging the knife into the table after every name.” [link]
  • Emanuel himself explodes amusingly at regular intervals and uses language that might have made Richard Nixon blush. [link]
  • Never a mincer of words, Emanuel didn’t couch his meaning when he offered Tony Blair counsel just before the then British prime minister appeared with President Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal: “This is important. Don’t fuck it up.” [link]
  • And of course, the infamous dead fish incident, when Emanuel was so infuriated by a pollster, that he sent a two and a half foot, rotted fish, just for pissing him off.

Also, hi, his brother is none other than ARI FRIGGEN GOLD. Ari Emanuel, the inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s character on Entourage. ARI. FRIGGEN. GOLD. Is there ANY REASON I should not just drop to my knees in front of this man?

Not to mention that according to fans of The West Wing (hello, Kimberly), the Josh Lyman character is based upon Rhambo himself. And. AND! The Matt Santos character is based upon none other than our very own President-elect Barack Obama. WHAT THE HELL? IS OUR GOVERNMENT REALLY, REALLY?!!? TURNING INTO A SEXY NBC DRAMA? Because if so, I AM ALLLL OVER THAT, MAN. That is AWESOME!

So, that’s the rundown on our sexy, angry, sexy, evil chief of staff designate. We’ll have more of these introductions to what is looking to be an AMAZING administration as Obama continues to appoint them. In the mean time, here’s some photos, since I never let you go empty handed:

Whisper whisper.

You know, this almost looks porny.

    What is Rhom Emanual all about? Who is he? Is he Jewish or just a JINO. This world and especially America is done as we know it. America will find reasons to turn against Israel. This will not take long.
    America wrote its epitat 04 November 2008. It’s done.

    There is poetic reasoning in this world. A kindred spirit with the same name sake. Keep up the good work George.
