Rahm Says Sorry

Rahm Emanuel, the next White House Chief of Staff, apologized to Arab-Americans this week for recent comments that his father made to the Israeli newspaper, Ma'ariv.

When talking about his son's clout within the incoming Obama administration, Benjamin Emanuel was quoted as saying: "obviously he'll influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn't he? What is he, an Arab? He's not going to be mopping floors at the White House."

Already positioning herself for 2012, media darling Sarah Palin immediately released a statement that accused Barack Obama of paling around with Jewish extremists.
