Meet the rising star of the Democratic Party:

At a Clinton victory dinner in Little Rock in 1992, Emanuel celebrated by reciting a hoped-for necrology of Democrats who had "f***ed" the president-elect. After every name, he stabbed a steak knife into a table and screamed, "Dead man!"


The review is interesting enough, and should give anybody with any convictions nightmares. We got rid of one Tom DeLay, and here comes another.

One qualm I have is the scapegoating of lefty bloggers for Democratic infighting, as in, "liberal bloggers... saw Emanuel as a triangulating sellout.." and, "after the election bloggers would point to a blue wave in state legislatures as an early sign of success."

That sentiment was undoubtedly expressed at the Daily Kos, but it's also the nub of a long-time issue between the "liberal" and "moderate" wings of the Democratic party.
