Courtesy of Wonkette we have a list of things you might not know about our personal congressman, Democratic Caucus Chair Rahm Emanuel:

  • He was offered a scholarship to the Joffrey School of Ballet
  • Raised in the Chicago school of politics, he's sent dead fish to people who have crossed him
  • The character Josh Lyman from The West Wing is loosely based on him
  • He's been known to plant steak knives into tables when trying to make a point
  • He went to Sarah Lawrence
  • He likes to show off his right middle finger, which was severed in an Arby's accident
  • His brother is the basis of Ari Gold from Entourage

Why are we telling you this?

Earlier today Murilee chronicled a Nissan-powered Land Rover with a Citroen suspension, which is a mix of weird parts, much like Rahm Emanuel the tough ballet dancing, colleague threatening former Arby's employee. There were a lot of great questions asked but this from Discontinuuity made us chuckle in a way that Rep. Emanuel would likely beat us for:

"Building a Nissan-powered Land Rover with Citroen suspension isn't normal, but on meth it is."

Do meth jokes ever get old?
