Rahm Emanuel Will End You

Ever since Barack Obama hired Rahm Emanuel to be his White House Chief of Staff, I've been kind of fascinated with the guy. Mostly because of the stories of his temper and profanity-fueled tirades that have become almost mythical. (Plus, he reportedly sent a dead fish to someone that really pissed him off, which I find strangely admirable.)

So Saturday Night Live made fun of Emanuel this weekend - or planned to, at least. Yet for some reason, this sketch didn't air. Why, I don't know, since it's funnier than almost anything else that was on the show. (The parody of the auto industry bailout hearings was sharp, though..)

Too much swearing? (Even though it's all bleeped out? And it's nothing worse than Joe Scarborough said on the air.) But it made the stab at Joe Lieberman that much more hilarious. (If only that had really happened...)
