The White House released a few of the President’s zingers which took aim at Emanuel’s penchant for profanity. “It was actually Rahm’s idea to do the swearing-in ceremony again,” Obama said. “Of course, for Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony, ” he joked.
The President also made light of his recent blackberry controversy saying, “In just the first few weeks, I’ve had to engage in some of the toughest diplomacy of my life. And that was just to keep my Blackberry.”
Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin was also in attendance but, since the black-tie affair traditionally bars reporters from attending, it is not known whether the President poked fun at the Caribou Barbie. We hope someone did.
