Rahm Emanuel

He volunteered in the Israeli military during the first Gulf War in 1991 (and only afterward showed up in the Clinton campaign’s war room). He’s said to have mailed a rotting fish to a former colleague, and to have cursed out Howard Dean over holding back funding for the 2006 elections. He told Fortune magazine’s Nina Easton that he trash-talked President Bush about his mountain biking, trying to goad him into stepping it up to a triathlon and telling Bush he could wear water wings for the swimming segment if he needed them.

More from Salon on Obama’s designated asshole. Seems like a sound appointment. (thanks B)
