Josh Can Be Jewish Sometimes

By Erica C. Barnett February 24, 2011

Josh says, re: Rahm Emanuel,
"Not a Rahm fan. But first Jewish mayor of Chicago is cool karma re: that whole former U.S. Sen. Abe Ribicoff thing. Google Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley and 'Fuck you, you Jew son of a bitch' and see what you get. Congrats Rahm."

(Melissa at Shakespeare's Sister---who lives outside Chicago---is less than thrilled at the prospect of Mayor Emanuel: "Chicagoans don't care as long as the trains run on time. While Emanuel's mayorship was being preordained and preemptively celebrated, especially by all his suburban donors, ahem, no one seemed to notice that his campaign slogan was 'Fuck those trains.'")
