Who is Rahm Emanuel?

An example of why Mr.2young and I are not a match made in heaven:

I was telling him about a dream I had. "I dreamt that Rahm Emanuel and Rachel Maddow came over for dinner at my house and they totally took my policy suggestions seriously!"

Mr.2young responded with, "Oh. Are those people you work with?"

Doh!

Reminded me a bit of this week's "Parks and Recreation" where the cop who asks Leslie out on a date sees a picture on her desk and says, "Oh, is that a picture of your grandma?"

She says, "That's Madeleine Albright."

He says, "Oh. Is that what you call her? I just call mine 'Nana.'"

Well...okay. There's "I don't know a lot about what's going on in the news," and then there's this young woman I saw on King of the Crown (or something like that, it's a new show on TLC about pageants).

She was dead-effing-clueless, bless her empty 'lil head. As long as he doesn't fall into that category, you might be able to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

And if it makes you feel any better, I always want to call him Emanuel Rahm. :)

Ha ha! Mmmm... I don't know that I can give him the benefit of the doubt... he is studying to be a HISTORY teacher... one would think he would pay attention to current events. But I know I can be a total snob where things like this are concerned.
