If you haven't read David Wilcox's essay on the R-word, Rahm Emanuel, and Sarah Palin, I highly recommend it; if you have, I also recommend his This American Life piece on the tape his dying mother made for his mentally retarded sister. It's not for the faint of emotion. Wilcox also discussed the piece with Vocalo's Jesse Menendez (fast forward to 1:20:00).

In tangential Rahm-word outburst news, now that the excitement has died down, there's been a welter of articles about how awesome he is.

Update: Moar about Rahm Emanuel, 2011 Nobel Awesome Prize Winner.
