Mr. Diplomatic Gets The Nod

Tiny Dance Rahm ‘3-fingers’ Emanuel

Anywhere but here?

“Joe Biden has chosen RAHM EMANUEL, a former congressman and Chicago mayor, to be U.S. ambassador to Japan, according to eight people familiar with personnel discussions inside the White House. The U.S. president will name Emanuel, who was chief of staff to Barack Obama and has close ties to Biden, this month in a big package of ambassadorship nominations, several of the people said.”

    Let’s see how diplomatic Rahm will be during confirmation hearings. Now I’m wondering how many Republican votes he’ll get in the Senate. It could go from 1-3 from Collins, Murkowski, and Romney with the rest voting no on the basis of partisanship because they hate his guts and want him to fail or to most of the Republican conference because they hate his guts, want him out of the country, and then want him to fail. I’m also wondering how many Democrats and Independents will hold their noses while voting yes and how many will actually be enthusiastic about their vote.

    By the way, the name I keep seeing for Ambassador to China looks on the surface to be potentially even more of source of merriment, retiring Disney Chairman Bob Iger. The joke might be on his critics, as he has a lot of experience negotiating with Chinese government officials to build and operate Shanghai Disneyland. He might actually be a good choice!

      Having a foul-mouthed asshole like rahm as ambassador would’ve worked if Abe were still the Japanese Premier given the abuse he gladly accepted at the tiny hands of fat nixon, but now, not so much…

  3. Hello TG. I wonder if he will stay on the This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday news show? I find him to be an arrogant annoying corporate Democrat who is against any real progressive policy. But he does seem to get the better of Chris Christy most of the time. Hugs

      All of those things are true, Scottie. It is a mystery why he would send RAHM ACROSS THE GLOBE AND AWAY FROM HIM, innit?

    Pretty good snub, all in all, one well-earned. Dismissive.
