Dammit, Rahm!

Rahm Emmanuel is reportedly planning to leave his job as White House Chief of Staff by the week's end, to begin a run for mayor of Chicago. This sucks. What the hell, Rahm, are you jealous that your brother has been immortalized on HBO's Entourage? You don't leave right before the midterm elections, dammit! This smacks of disloyalty and opportunism, not to mention giving that image of rodents leaving the ship--sinking or not.

Leaving now is a shitty thing to do at this time, Rahm.

...then again...maybe it's a good move. Maybe by doing this Obama's team can be reinvigorated by some new blood. Something has to change in the way the White House's message is delivered. Lemons out of lemonade right?

@Benjamin Fahlgren: That may be, but I just don't like how Rahm seems to have used the Chief of Staff position as a stepping stone. It's unseemly at best, tacky at worst.
