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.
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.”
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.
You think the sailors on Navy carriers in the Mideast or the guys on patrol in Afghanistan don’t miss their kids?
