President-elect Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has apologized for a racial slur made by his father Benjamin.
Last week the father of Rahm Emanuel stated in an interview with an Israeli paper, “Obviously he’ll influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn’t he? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to be mopping floors at the White House.”
The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination called for Emanuel to renounce his father's statement, which he has now done.
Ibrahim Hooper, with the Council on American Islamic Relations, spoke with KBOO's Jenka Soderberg on the issue.

This morning US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson announced that some of the massive bailout package could be used to help consumers.
In his remarks, Paulson acknowledged that the bailout hasn’t delivered what he promised, when he asked Congress for the money last month.
He tried to make the case for the continuation of bank buyouts, but decided against the government buying devalued mortgages.
Dedrick Muhammed, with the Institute for Policy Studies, believes that what Paulson proposes is just more of the same.

The City of Portland plans to sell more than $15 million dollars in general obligation bonds next week in order to fix up the city’s main fire station on Naito Parkway.
The sale is the last of a series of bonds issued as part of a 53 million dollar measure approved by taxpayers in 1998.
Besides being an inopportune time to dip into the bond market, KBOO reporter David Rosenfeld explains how the bond sale comes with news about the city’s increasing debt obligations.

Sarah Palin; Evita or Dan Quayle

Categories:

Have you seen the video of the Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin. She's at a Turkey farm to pardon a turkey as part of her official duties.

Following the event  Governor Palin gives an interview for television  in the background clearly visible is a worker slaughtering turkeys one by one. The clueless Palin even ends the interview joking about that she's in the right place for Thanksgiving because she will be cooking the Turkey. The footage is both horrifying and hysterical. Not for the squeamish or those with very soft hearts. Every time I see it I find myself laughing, but what does it tell us if anything about Palin. Is she a buffoon, someone so laughable that we can dismiss her with great skits by Tina Fey or is she personally the new face of the most right wing of the right wing? Is she a facist with a populist front? Charismatic leader or a polarizing flash in the pan?
