Rahm the Knife

After reading the news on Howard Dean's exile to Samoa during this week's DNC power hand-off, and Gawker's piece, "Rahm Emanuel Already Knifing Enemies ," I thought I'd leave readers with a musical interlude while I go out for some fresh air.

Please enjoy Bobby Darin's, "
Mack the Knife," from 1959:

Here's some improvised lyrics:

Now, d'ja hear 'bout Howie Dean? He disappeared, babe
After drawin' out all that hard-earned cash
And now Ole Rahm spends just like a sailor
Could it be our Chief's done somethin' rash?
I'll have more later ...

But when Tom "The Hammer" Delay was pulling his stunts the right thought that was a good thing.

There's been some debate as to the real success of the "50 State" strategy vs Rahm's fund the centrist Dem with a real shot at winning war plan. I feel Rahm has every right to block H.D.'s inclusion into the inner sanctum, given the very public split the two had over this issue. Plus, it's cool to speculate such intrigue when such fitting players present themselves. Yay! Rahmbo! Otherwise, I'm afraid Team Obama may be a bit dull for the next 4 years (2 yrs if you factor in Rahm's wish list. After all there may be a certain senate seat up for grabs).
