Rahm Emanuel: April 2007 Archives

COLUMBIA, S.C.--It's a long day for Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama, who is taking full advantage of the three hour time difference between here and California.

This morning, after a workout in his hotel gym, Obama and his team were heading to their chartered plane to head to San Diego, to appear later today at the California State Democratic convention. After his speech, he heads to Los Angeles for a high-dollar ($2,300-a-person) fundraiser at the home of Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel. He's the brother of Rep. Rahm Emanue (D-Ill.)

House Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.) was the Democratic speaker at last Saturday's Gridiron Club dinner.

Emanuel is know for his crude language. In the skit the club performed before Emanuel spoke the lyrics went like this--"Who is that frickin dude? And why is he so crude."


And this zinger from Emanuel:
AS A TEENAGER, I WAS WORKING IN A RESTAURANT AND ACCIDENTALLY SLICED OFF THE MIDDLE FINGER ON MY RIGHT HAND. OF ALL THE FINGERS TO LOSE! I COULD NOT EXPRESS MYSELF FOR MONTHS.
