Rahm the Blue Enforcer

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel warned the progressive wing of his party to stop running ads against corporate sponsored Democrats. The NYT reported:

Mr. Emanuel showed up this month amid internal tension over health care. Asked about liberal advertisements aimed at Democrats in conservative districts, he delivered an obscenity-laced tirade about the senselessness of attacking each other, participants said.

Emanuel has a history of slamming carving knives into wooden picnic benches, while shouting "dead" in reference to political opponents.

The issue is health care reform, where infamous ads abound. Many are run by corporate for-profiteers, intent on spinning change to their advantage. Many "moderate" Democrats are majorly funded by these same firms. The White House Health Czar, Nancy-Ann DeParle, has an impressive for-profit health care background.

Why is Rahm Emanuel reading the riot act to progressive groups? Consolidating power is the prime objective. Machiavellian Emanuel works to achieve absolute power for Corporacrats. He defends Blue Dogs, while dining with financial barbarians at the Blue Duck Tavern. Greed applies to money and power. Rahm wants both very badly.
