Rahmology

Rahm Emanuel is finally, at long last, after much speculation, leaving the White House. The announcement comes tomorrow. If you're curious about the politics of this, as it concerns disappointed liberals, that's here . If you want puns forged in the furnaces of Twitter, here you go.

Rahmadan : The 24 days between Richard Daley's announcement that he would retire and Emanuel's announcement that he would run to replace him, during which time the Washington press corps fasted. (Alternate spelling: Rahmadone.)

Rahm Kippur : Friday, October 1: The day Rahm will leave his post as White House chief of staff.

Rahm Sunday : The day that Rahm returns to Chicago.

Thanks to Felicia Sonmez, Rachel Balsham and Jeffrey Mervosh for the puns.
