What better way to show the country that you're serious about changing the climate of partisanship and strife in Washington than by offering your Chief of Staff gig to Rahm Emanuel, a vicious partisan Democrat attack dog and former Clinton bag man/Washington insider who makes Karl Rove look like Will Rogers by comparison? I guess Michael Moore, Sidney Blumenthal, Markos Moulitsas, and James Carville were all busy for the next four years.
To borrow a line from the "Outlaw Josie Wales:"
Rahm Emanuel is a bloodthirsty sonofabiatch! He's a looter and a pillager! He's the worst enemy those men have got!
