Nice. Four stars for Rahm, one star for "Rahmbo."
That's what they call him though!

According to interviews from 2005, Sorkin and the actors based their fictional Presidential race on the West Wing as follows
- Democratic minority nominee Jimmy Smits: based on Barack Obama
- Republican moderate nominee Alan Alda: based on John McCain
- Democratic nominee's Chief of Staff Bradley Whitford: based on Rahm Emanuel
If the show had continued for a few more seasons, we'd already know how Obama's first term will turn out.
Arron Sorkin had left the show before the Santos character was created. That said, Josh Lymon was based on Rham all along anyways.

I can finally start looking forward to the news now. Can we have some mass trials soon? I can taste them now.

The description doesn't match what Rahm is actually saying.
I worded it poorly because sometimes it's difficult to summarize C-SPAN footage in 20 words or less.

Not a fan of Irgun.
He's not Irgun; his father was, 60 fucking years ago.
