 Want to swish this around in your elite, chardonnay-soaked gob?

Among other things, Obama’s pick of Rahm Israel Emanuel, whose father is of Israeli origin, gives the lie to an endless wild myths that political enemies have tirelessly spread during the campaign that he was supposed to be a closest America-hater and no doubt anti-Semite because of his Kenyan background and boyhood in Indonesia. Emanuel, nicknamed “Rahmbo” by his colleagues, is a quasi neo-con hawk on foreign policy, tough champion of the war on terror, and advocate of crackdowns on crime. Obama was accused of being a “socialist” and hater of big business, but Emanuel was managing director in the Chicago office of a major global investment bank, Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, where he made millions.

A quasi neo-con hawk. I thought those were extinct? Also, Emanuel’s still an unapologetic supporter of the Iraq war who thinks coffee’s for closers. 

If Obama was any kind of Manchurian candidate, it’s the Nation-netroots left that should be worried…
