Rahm Emanuel Flexing His Muscles
By James Hirsen
February 9, 2009
Rahm Emanuel, aka “Rahmbo,” is notorious for being a perpetrator of Saul Alinsky-style politics.
Reports have surfaced about Emanuel’s unique way of throwing his weight around.
Among the current chief of staff’s reported power plays are:
The bare knuckles brand of Emanuel politics is all over the pork-a-plenty bill via paybacks. Other examples include the appointment of Republican Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire to head the Commerce Department, which all but guarantees an additional Dem Senate seat in 2010, and the decision to place the U.S. Census Bureau under White House control to gerrymander House districts.
Back in 1996, HBO produced a biopic of the Russian monk Rasputin, which starred Alan Rickman and Greta Scacchi. The so-called mad monk is known for his extraordinary influence over Czar Nicholas II.
Looks like D.C.’s got a follow-up film taking shape, “Rasputin, the Sequel.”
