Rahm Emanuel -- Bigger Than the Big O

1/12/2009 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Further proof that the hierarchy of celebrity is different in D.C. than Hollywood -- for one restaurant in town, there is no bigger star than Rahm Emanuel.

The soon-to-be Chief of Staff is a regular at Rasika Restaurant. This Indian joint made it clear: The best table always goes to Rahm -- and that specifically includes you, Oprah, according to the hostess on duty.

We're told other than dealing with his order, waiters are told not to bother Mr E. But the waiters get theirs in the end -- we're told Rahm is a "fabulous tipper."

Sure, Rahm gets the royal treatment while those of us whose taxes will double under the Obama regime will be scrounging in dumpsters for our meals.

This is why Blago is so bitter. Rahm can afford to leave big tips - pay-for-play worked out for him.

Why the hell do politicians get special treatment. They are supposed to be OUR servants! All of this eventually costs me and you more money by way of taxation. This is wrong, wrong, wrong.

Lets see, Rahm will go to an Indian restaurant, do you think you'll ever find him at an Arabian, or Moroccan one? NO way...that guy wont come within 10 yards of a Muslim or anything as non Jewish as Arabians. He is as hateful to them as his Father, a Terrorist growing up back in 48 during the creation of the State of Israel was and still is today---only Rahm is the Presidents right hand man now...Imagine what Obamas stance on anything Israel is going to be with Rahm whispering his hatred for all things Arabian into his ear.

Go look up what Rahms own Father recently said after his son was appointed----about his still brewing hatred for all that are Arabian.

Gaza is ablaze and you can bet any position Obama takes on it or Israel for the next 4 years will be only what Rahm tells him it should be...and Rahm is as pro Jewish Israel as they come. If you're jewish, you're ok---if you're not---may your own god help you because Rahm will not.

he even served his country...except Rahm didnt serve the US, he worked for the Israeli Army serving his country.

Unbelieveable...Not Change we can Believe in with Rahm as Obamas right hand man and what he will tell him about all who are not jewish nor of Israel.

have a Nice meal Rahm...big tipper huh? That thief is a Chicago democratic machine created candidate that cheated his way into office playing with dirty people on the way up...go look it up....uh, pass the Curry sauce please Rahm.

This guy is a stinking pile of dirt, for sure. He comes from the dirtiest state, Illinois.

This is one Jew that fits every cliche. Dirty as a Jew can be, or anyone for that matter. The people that voted for Obama got themselves the cream of the crop for a Chief of Staff. Good thing he is not in the succesion line for the Presidency.

He is one of another 'crook' from Chicago. He can't be trusted.

Virulent anti-semitism going on here. Have you even asked what his stance is on Gaza? No you don't have a clue. He probably just wants the violence to end, like most people in Obama's cabinate.

And indians are farther away from jews genetically than arabs, so get a grip "Brubaker". He doesn't hate everyone other than jews ...
