Rahm Emanuel

President Obama's Chief of Staff is a certified bad ass. It is rumored that the character of Josh Lyman from the West Wing was loosely based off of Rahm Emanuel and it's no secret that Ari Gold from Entourage is based on his brother. Obama spoke briefly about Rahm during his speech at the Alfalfa Dinner several nights ago.

"Now, this hasn't been reported yet, but it was actually Rahm's idea to do the swearing-in ceremony again. Of course, for Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony. But don't believe what you read. Rahm Emanuel is a real sweetheart. No, it's true. Every week the guy takes a little time away to give back to the community. Just last week he was at a local school, teaching profanity to poor children."

Now that's dedication. Our children need to be taught that they too can yell at British Prime Ministers not to "fuck this up!"
