RUSH: Rahm Emanuel, ladies and gentlemen, is imploding. He said today that he’s not going to go to — remember, now, it’s been revealed that he’s on the wiretap tapes and he spoke six times to Blago about all this, despite what Obama said yesterday. So Emanuel says he’s not going to go to presidential transition offices in order to avoid reporters who want to ask him whether he did indeed have contact with Blago about the Senate seat. ‘According to an ABC News cameraman –‘ this is an ABC News story ‘– according to an ABC News cameraman who was invited inside by Emanuel to use his bathroom this morning, Emanuel appeared ‘beet-red.” Emanuel said to the ABC cameraman, ‘I’m getting regular death threats. You’ve put my home address on national television. I’m pissed at the networks. You’ve intruded too much.’ Oh! Oh! Oh! These people are cowards. These are wimps. Every time the temperature gets turned up on them, it’s death threats. Rahm, you ever heard of Ken Starr? Do you remember Linda Tripp? Do you remember all the places the media staked out and got these people coming out getting their morning papers and showing their addresses on TV, and they didn’t cry (crying) about death threats. It’s the big leagues, buddy. I thought you knew that.
