Ari Emanuel Hosts Obama Fundraiser

Superagent Ari "Hug it out, Bitch" Emanuel is hosting a fundraiser for Senator Barack Obama. While Ari is clearly "Team Obama," his brother, Rahm "Rahmbo" Emmanuel has been, for years, "Team Hillary." This, of course, causes problems.

Obama owns Chicago. And .. Rahm represents Chicago. That is, what they call in Boston, a "Pisser." As we have said:

"Rahm Emmanuel is in a double bind -- Does he support his hometown Illinois hero for the Presdiency? Or, Does Rahm allow his Illinois flank to go unprotected and tack towards his longtime political patrons, The Clintons of Chattauqua, NY, by way of bucolic Hope, Ark (Exaggerated cough suggesting feiged detachment). Who will former ballet dancer and Democratic Party savior Rahm Emmanuel support?"

Still, Rahm, despite the unpopular stance, has "rib-busting ox strength" in his district after guiding the Democratic Party to victory in the 2006 elections, and should not worry about any internal Chicago-political repercussions. From ABC's TheNote:

"While in Los Angeles on Saturday, Sen. Obama holds two splashy fundraisers. The first is in the early evening at the Brentwood home of super-agent Ari Emanuel. Admission is $2300 per person."

$2300; which is, we cannot fail to note, the max for the Primary.
