For such a lengthy article you’d think they would at least touch on Rahm’s role in ruining the economy while working for Freddie Mac in his patronage position. Instead we get the same breathless puff piece expected from the Times where the writer associates some sort of logical strategy to Rahm’s sophmoric bumbling. If you don’t have the gravitas or intelligence to do your job properly I suppose the last resort is to go to the Congressional locker room, strip naked and berate your colleagues in the shower area. Seems like any employer in the U.S. would fire an employee on the spot for such behaviour, but Barry sees it as business as usual. I wonder if Pinch will start doing this in the NY Times locker room as the NY Times doesn’t seem to have a problem with this either.
I like to see what sympathetic writers say about Obama. Rahm, Pelosi, etc. It was a long article, but the two quotes I pulled out about Obama’s work schedule (ethic), and his choice in tv viewing (SportsCenter)....Even the liberal admirers of the messiah give us a couple nuggets of truth once in awhile.
