Some of the Crazy Woman's least favorite blogs have wondered why it took Rebecca Mansour almost a week to come up with and write "Palin's" facebook post objecting to Obama's Chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel describing people like me as "fucking retarded." Speculation initially was that the paid flacks who used to run the Sea of Pee needed a diversion.
They got it. Emanuel had already apologized for his remarks. To the developmentally disabled and their advocates, not to progressives.
Now that the story has gotten a bit of traction, the Sarahbots are being asked to call their congressmen and women, demanding they demand Emanuel's resignation. Keep demanding. Get Glenn Beck in on it too, if you can. And BillO and Sean. Please!
I doubt Emanuel will resign, though. He's got some sort of protection that allows him to destroy one Democratic Party presidency after another. I've been writing about his questionable characteristics for about two years now, being tutored by the master, Howie Klein.
Last summer, just before the Palin machine hired RAM, I spent several hours with her on the phone when she was in Alaska. I had invited her to come to a dinner with the Alaska progressive bloggers. On Eddie Burke's KBYR program, she accepted. Then she backed out. Too bad.
Rebecca has perhaps as deep an abiding dislike for Rahm Emanuel as do I. Some of our reasons overlap, but not most of them. Rebecca is Lebanese-American, and has some poignant family stories to tell, that shed light on why she is most likely the driving force behind this push to rid us of this foul man.
Good luck, RAM, on ridding us of Rahm!
If he resigns, I'll not only bring Palin flowers, but I'll send you some too.
Howard Dean might chip in.
