Rahm Emmanuel supports autonomy

While I was reading this Zunes article I noticed that Rahm Emanuel is among the US congressmen supporting Morocco's autonomy proposal. For those who don't know, Rahm Emanuel is the head of the Democratic caucus in the House who gets a lot of credit for the Democratic victory in 2006.

I've never liked him, though, and now I have an even more concrete reason why. Someone so willing to sell out self-determination isn't someone I want running the Democratic Party. Plus, he's a total gangster: he sent a dead fish to someone who crossed him. Here's a case where a rare intersection of Maghreb and US politics illuminates both sides.

  1. Will,

    I just sent him an e-mail with his web form:

    Your zip code indicates that you are outside of the 5th District of Illinois.

    Regrettably, I am unable to reply to any email from constituents outside of the 5th District of Illinois.

    Bull crap.
