Rahm Emanuel's Middle Finger: Giving it and Taking it.
At the now famous 2005 roast for Rahm Emanuel the then Senator Obama said of Emanuel’s middle finger:
“It hasn’t been easy for Rahm though. As a young man he had a serious accident, I think many of you are aware of this. He was working at a deli, an accident with a meat-slicing machine … he lost part of his middle finger. As a result of this, this rendered him practically mute (laughter). Has he ever flashed that stubby thing at you? (laughter) It’s appalling! Just recently the polls just came out, Democrat are doing better. Rahm turned around and gave his colleagues the high four and a half (laughter).
