Rahm and Ari: More on the Emanuel Bros

By Debbie Schlussel
Yesterday, after I wrote about new Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel and his brother, Hollywood superagent, Ari Emanuel, readers asked for more.
As I noted, the Emanuels’ father, is a brilliant Israeli-American medical doctor who helped in Israel’s fight for independence, passing secret code to Menachem Begin. But, as I also noted, the Bros Emanuel take after Mommy Emanuel, who took them to protests. I also noted that while Rahm Emanuel served as an IDF volunteer during the Gulf War, he’s no hero and forced Yitzchak Rabin to shake hands with Terrorist-in-Chief/mass murderer Yasser Arafat at the White House for a Clintonian photo op. And finally I noted that brother Ari Emanuel represents, among others, thug criminal Mark Wahlberg, annoying Sacha Baron Cohen, and anti-Israel/pro-HAMAS Michael Moore–a likely Obama White House guest.
Since readers wanted to know more, I recommend you read this 1997 New York Times profile of the Emanuels, which–while glowing–gives insight into their upbringing courtesy of their leftist mother (and bright, heroic father).

Bros Emanuel: Ari Emanuel w/Mega-Producer Weinstein; Rahm Emanuel w/Obama

There’s an urban pseudo-principle, “Bros Before Hos”, but an examination of the Emanuel Brothers is a twist on that hip-hop street adage. The Emanuels are simultaneously Bros AND Hos.

Debbie, I got that saying just last week from watching a “House” rerun. I immediately rushed over here to my fave web site to try it out.

Rahm Emanuel’s first order of business will be to win the run-off seat held by Saxby Chambliss. (Hopefully Chambliss will get the 50% +1.) COBRAMA will campaign in Georgia to get another Senate seat if needed. Obviously COBRAMA’s choice of Emanuel will pacify the liberal’s hard left agenda. He is good at what he does and Republicans must stand tough against him. If Republicans can get keep Chambliss, Alaska’s seat, and Norm Coleman in the fold, we will have 43 senators.
Hopefully Chambliss will pound Jim Martin with COBRAMA on driver’s license for illegal aliens. “Will Martin block COBRAMA’s radical Amnesty agenda?” Now that McCain is gone, it time for Republicans to go after Dems on Amnesty. Wedge issues will deliver. Screw COBRAMA’s unity…err capitulation of right or “honyemoon”. Linking Martin with COBRAMA on immigration issues is a must to win that seat. Also trepidation by Wall Street toward COBRAMA’S economic policy should be a major issue.
A victory by Chambliss if COBRAMA campaigns in Georgia will be seen as Referendum on COBRAMA and that he will get resistance.

A victory by Chambliss if COBRAMA campaigns in Georgia will be seen as Referendum on COBRAMA before he gets into office. COBRAMA would love to deliver on his star power.

It’s Begala and Slicky that called Rahm Emanuel
“A mixture of hemorroids and tooth ache”…

I bet there’s no happiness in Gaza tonight with Rahm’s appointment. End of Obama donations from the local computer cafe!
