Undersecretary for Go Fuck Yourself.

If you haven't read the New Yorker profile of Rahm Emanuel yet, drop everything you're doing and go read it.  It's a bit of a car crash: ugly and brutish but you have to keep reading.  The funniest is the head-on attack against Paul Krugman - multiple times, with a few F-words.  Who needs TV with delicious drama like this?

“No disrespect to Paul Krugman,” Emanuel went on, “but has he figured out how to seat the Minnesota senator?” (Franken’s victory is the subject of an ongoing court challenge by his opponent, Norm Coleman, which the national Republican Party has been happy to help finance.) “Write a fucking column on how to seat the son of a bitch. I would be fascinated with that column. O.K.?”

The really interesting bit is the explanation of how the stimulus package was passed and his role in the negotiations.  Really makes one appreciate the "process."  And by appreciate, I mean detest.
