10. It's actually on the website of the Boston Globe
http://www.boston.com/news/politics/inauguration/galler...

(There are some really incredible photos at - http://www.boston.com/news/multimedia/gallery/obamas_in... / and at http://www.boston.com/news/politics/inauguration/galler... /

What isn't known is to whom Emanuel is focusing on - it may well have been towards a friend.

16. Well, then I'm sure he was just busting a friends jewels with it
Either that, or it was a message to Bushco on their way out.

13. no, I actually saw him do it and Diane Sawyer even said,
"he'll probably receive an email about that..."

I think it's funny. It was probably to a friend.

25. No big deal - though roughly on the par of Jenna Bush sticking out her tongue
This is embarrassing behavior on the part of a chief of staff, but it really should not make him less effective.

22. that photo reminds me of the joke Obama told at Rahm's roast...
...a few years ago (CNN, I think it was, ran the footage when he was announced as COS) - Obama described the accident Rahm had as a teenager working in a deli... and the punchline was that the accident "rendered him mute."

about yesterday. It was a great day for Democrats! I must say, he looked very handsome yesterday!

18. Does anyone think Rahm Emanuel's mothers life was hell raising Rahm and his brothers?
Can you imagine living in a house with those three boys? There must have been blood on the floor nightly.

21. Rahm is so serious, normally
He reminds me of a raptor on his perch looking for prey. I think it's great to see he has a sense of humor. Most of Bush's people, that was one of their problems--not that they acted like children, but that they took themselves (and their crazy ideas) far too seriously.
