Profanity Saves a Life

Sharp-elbowed White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, for whom the f-word serves as a punctuation mark, went out to the movies on Saturday (specifically to see The Wrestler, go figure). While there, the gentleman sitting next to him apparently had a seizure. The movie theater's employees wanted to move the poor man out of the theater right away, so that they could re-start the movie. Emanuel gave them a firm talking-to, insisting that they leave him where he was until the EMTs arrived.

I am sure that, with the recent Congressional fights over the stimulus bill and embarrassments over Cabinet appointments, Rahm Emanuel has had plenty of opportunity to use his powers of profanity. It must have been a real thrill to use them for what was indisputably the greater good.

Always happy to see someone come down on the right side of things. Even if it is ol' Rahm.

I'll leave out the gratuitous backhand. wouldn't be right.
