The thing about Rahm Emanuel is that he’s essentially a campaigner before he’s anything else. So any legislation that comes out of this guy exists primarily for the political advantage it lends to the Democrats.

So you get snarky “gotcha” legislation from him, like this gem.

Obviously there’s an important point to be made about Cheney’s insistence that he’s exempt from the rules governing the executive branch and the frightening precedent that sets. But I wonder if stunts like this don’t distract from the less entertaining but more important duties that Congress should be getting around to.
