    Default Rahm Emanuel is scared of only one thing: Stephen Colbert

    November 15, 2008

    Rahm Emanuel Is Scared of Stephen Colbert!

    They appeared together at a spina-bifida fundraiser and threw barbs at each other. You remember that Emanuel urged incoming congresspeople to avoid The Colbert Report two years ago. Full text and video at Huffington Post. Here is Rahm on Stephen:

    "I'm scared of Stephen Colbert. I'm not alone. My colleagues in Congress, political operatives, the top minds in Washington, even some of the people in this room -- we're all scared of Stephen Colbert... We're scared of Stephen Colbert in the same way Sarah Palin is scared of a geography bee. We're scared of him the same way that John Edwards is scared of the National Enquirer. Mary Matalin is scared of Stephen, and she's seen Carville naked! ... Even Hillary Clinton is scared of Colbert, and this makes no sense to me -- she is a woman who braved sniper fire at the Battle of Bosnia's Airport. We're frightened of Colbert, but we know that deep down, underneath the Republican character you see on TV, there's still a good man, there's still hope for him. It's the same way we feel about Joe Lieberman."

    A couple of Colbert's comments:

    On Alan Greenspan: "Alan Greenspan is here, and we're in the middle of a once-in-a-century financial meltdown, so of course the question everyone is asking is, How did Alan Greenspan land Andrea Mitchell? Seriously. Keep kissing him, Andrea, he's going to turn into a prince one of these days."

    On Ben Bradlee: "Ben Bradlee is here -- nice to see you Ben. Congratulations on your latest children's book, 'Grandpa, What Was Print Media?'"

    On Chris Matthews: "Chris Matthews is here tonight, thank you so much for coming here tonight. People are asking, how did he come here, doesn't he have a show? Well what people don't know is that many nights, Chris just puts a blond wig on a potato and nobody notices. You're a good man -- good luck in Pennsylvania on that run."

    We're scared of Stephen Colbert in the same way Sarah Palin is scared of a geography bee.
    I can't wait for Rahm's press conferences.

    Shoot, he's not scared of him, he loves the guy. And probably wants him against the closest wall.

    Yeah, but when you're talking about people like Obama and Colbert, it can make the straightest man turn gay for five minutes.

    Stephen Colbert is a comedian who pretends to be conservative. He has a "talk show" and has various guests on. He is very witty and funny. It was funnier a few years ago when a lot of politicians didn't know he was fake.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.
