The story has made the rounds of Washington, D. C., as an example of Rahm Emanuels unforgiving approach to politics.
Emanuel, now President Obamas chief of staff, once mailed a dead fish to a pollster because Emanuel believed a polling mistake helped cost his candidate the election. [snip]
Emanuel was the top staff member at the committee charged with electing Democrats to the House. [snip]
So after the campaign, Emanuel told the New Yorker, he had a company that specializes in unusual forms of revenge send the fishy message to the pollster. [snip]

Ya think Rahm still has this company in his Rolodex?
Even without the implicit death threat (Godfather/Sicilian Mafia allusion), mailing foul things is a federal crime.
Yep. It is.
Get off Rahm Emanuel back the man had a lot of prior dealings with all those good bonus people at AIG. Sac off
What about fruit cake ?
The boy needs a horse head in his bed.
And Emmanuel stabbed a table at a dinner party repeatedly with a steak knife, calling out names of Republicans he didn’t like as he stabbed, and said “dead, dead, dead” over and over.
This guy is an over grown adolescent. He’s not a mature adult. I miss a White House where the adults are in charge.
How does he justify or explain his obvious irrational behavior?
Why would Obama want a loose cannon like him working in his White House in the first place? Yes, he has political skills, but he has the mind of a child.
Somebody has to tell obami what to do and say.
I believe you are right. Fruit cake is both a foul thing and an implicit death threat. ;^)
Mailing a dead fish is so retro...real people don’t need a stinking fish.
Actually, the names he read off were fellow Dems he felt had betrayed Clinton. Honestly, for some reason that scares me even more.
Count on it.
If the dead fish sender doesn't, be certain that one or both of the TOTUS's will (even with Zero tied behind their backs).
Rahm is the equvalent of dead fish, only dead fish don’t smell as bad, and are edible.
Real class act/xtreme sarc.Rhetorical question:Has there ever been an administration with so many losers appointed to important posts?Thugs and tax cheats.What’s next?I kinda feel like a passenger on a slowly sinking ship in the middle of nowhere.No lifeboats,no rescue ships on the horizon.....
That mailing a fish, is that some kind of ethnic thing? Or is it a gay ballerina thing?
If I were the pollster I would poop in a bag then send it back to Rahm E!
“It’s a sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes”
Don’t say anything but i like them to the older the better
