WEntourage

So Rahm Emanuel has been offered the job of Chief of Staff. I don't know much about him except that he kept sending me e-mails asking for money a few years ago when he ran the Democratic House campaigns. But here's a summary from the NY Times.

What stood out for me was that his brother is Ari Emanuel, the real-life inspiration for Ari Gold, the Hollywood agent played by Jeremy Piven on HBO's Entourage.

I'm waiting eagerly for Funny or Die or some other enterprising website to put together the West Wing / Entourage mash up with Ari Gold as Chief of Staff. You know, walking and talking (on cell phones) and swearing at aides, telling Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to "Hug it out, bitches" and making homophobic comments to Barney Frank.

Not only that but his other brother is a respected physician. Hear all three brothers on Charlie Rose:
