When all else fails, there's still your family to help bury you...

Whatever you may think of Rahm Emmanuel as President-elect Barack Obama's Chief of Staff, you gotta cringe for him when a story like this hits Al Jazeera:

Rahm Emanuel, US president-elect Barack Obama's chief of staff, has apologised to an Arab-American group for comments made by his father that disparaged Arabs.

Benjamin Emanuel was reported as telling an Israeli newspaper about his son last week: "Obviously, he will influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn't he?

"What is he, an Arab? He's not going to clean the floors of the White House."

Speaking of Burials...

Obama never attended the Funeral of his 'very dearly loved Grandmother'.

Did he?

He could take his Transition staff on the plane to Hawaii, with lots of private time.

And just a little sand and warmth to kick start the Team.

Or would that be too far from the INFLUENCES in CHICAGO?

Apparently the First Amendment took a hit, by keeping the Reverend and the educational Philosopher, quiet through out the campaign.

Is it no wonder that Halloween precedes our national elections. The season for wearing MASKS.
