Byron York has a revealing piece analyzing the New Yorker's profile of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
...while containing nothing particularly newsworthy, [the article] does add to the public record on the new White House chief of staff's fondness for the F-word. Although we all know the word has flown around previous White Houses, it's hard to cite any former chief of staff, or other top-ranking official, who has actually said it on the record in Emanuel fashion.Here's an organizational management tip for ya, Rahm -- don't complain on record about stuff that's WORSE for people working for you than it is for you.
Some examples. The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza talks to Emanuel on a day in which Emanuel is preparing to fly to Park City, Utah for a ski getaway with his family. "Do you know what I'm thinking about?" Emanuel says. "I'm going to finally get to see my kids after a month. So that's all I give a f--k about."
You think the sailors on Navy carriers in the Mideast or the guys on patrol in Afghanistan don't miss their kids?
