Check it Out

This was a 2005 roast of Rahm Emanuel at a benefit for CURE which is a Chicago-based non-profit that raises money for research in pediatric epilepsy. Susan Axelrod, the founder, is married to David Axelrod, Obama's campaign strategist.

I couldn't figure out how to post this video despite numerous tries, but check it out:

Wow. It's really so cool to see our next PRESIDENT standing in front of the word EPILEPSY. Maybe we'll get somewhere.


  1. It's good to know that people in the inner circle have had experience on a personal level with the issue of disability. My guess is that David Axelrod's child has epilepsy? That they had that going on and didn't make a huge issue of it speaks volumes to me. I hope that this broadens into a respect for all people with disabilities.

  2. Jeneva, the Axelrods do have a daughter with a severe seizure disorder and developmental disabilities -- and I hadn't thought about how remarkable it was that Obama didn't bring that up at any point, especially given Palin's public airing of her so-called love and experience of families with special needs kids.
