Rahm Emmanuel Soon to Spend More Fucking Time With His Fucking Family?

A few weeks back, a fairly extraordinary column issued from Washington Post twit Dana Milbank claiming that Obama was an airy-fairy buffoon and it was only the sharp and realistic Rahm Emmanuel keeping the administration afloat.

Extraordinary, because this obviously came from Rahm or his friends, and Chiefs of Staff usually fall on their swords for their presidents. They don't force their presidents down on their own swords.

Similar stories also made it into the straight-news part of the Post, too:

And on Tuesday, The Post led the paper with a purported news story by Jason Horowitz saying that a president with Obama’s “detached, professorial manner” needed “a political enforcer” like Emanuel to have a chance of succeeding, “because he [Emanuel] possessed a unique understanding of the legislative mind.” Unfortunately, the story said, “influential Democrats are — in unusually frank terms — blaming Obama and his closest campaign aides for not listening to Emanuel.”

This all sounds like a preemptive strike on Obama from the Emmanuel camp. Even if it's not meant to be that, how can Obama keep the guy on when he or his friends are planting stories that he's a "98-pound-weakling"?

I don't really care who Obama's Chief of Staff is. Obama will be awful either way. But it's lovely to see such Democrats in Disarray stories.
