Nobody's trying harder than me, to take a step back, take a few deep breaths, and give Damien, er, Barack, a chance. It's not easy, with a few members of my family having taken deep draughts of the Kool-Aid, and sending joyous emails everyday exulting in America's liberation.

Emanuel's brother Ari is the model for "Entourage's" Ari Gold, the sociopathic agent played by Jeremy Piven. He represents, among others, the despicable Michael Moore. He is a big-time Democratic fundraiser and Hollywood "community organizer."
The idea that Rahm Emanuel's appointment signals anything but a far-left-wing alliance being further solidified, is laughable.
Obama will disappoint, most assuredly. Nobody could live up to the messianic image embraced by his cultish followers. He promised everything to everyone, in terms of feel-good leftist claptrap. Reality will impose itself in short order.
