Heckuva Anonymous Quote Rahm

Nothing like insulting your base (photo via aflcio at Flickr)

In the wake of Blanche Lincoln surviving Bill Halter’s primary challenge a “Senior White House Official” said:

“Organized labor just flushed $10 million of their members’ money down the toilet on a pointless exercise”

Now that quote to Ben Smith is anonymous and missing the curses, but there’s certainly more evidence to support that it came from Rahm Emanuel than we had to invade Iraq. The Teabaggers are doing their best to give the GOP the least appealing candidates, so naturally the Democratic Party establishment is doing their best to make sure the Democrats get the same.

I wonder how much is going to be wasted by the DNC on making sure that Arkansas Senate seat turns Republican? Or how much cash did Rahm cost his boss in donations? 11th Dimensional Chess!

But still, when we have Arkansas Republican Senator Boozman it will somehow still be Labor’s fault.

Hey White House: Who's the "Absolute Idiot" Now?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
