Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Obama Roast of Rahm Emanuel

I noticed this on CNN a few nights ago, but they just played the brief reference to Machiavelli’s Prince, but the whole seven minutes is very funny. It takes place in 2005 and is from YouTube. Very funny.

I watched 50%. Not funny. His 'humor' is that of a bully, deriding others. He's an arrogant pr*ck who needs notes even at a roast.

Thanks, Peter. This is a better performance than the show at the Al Smith dinner. I showed it in class today, as we discussed the transition and the "party in government."

Tom, it is funny. It's a roast. You're supposed to deride the person being roasted. It's clearly in fun.
