The media after Obama chooses Rahm Emmanuel as his chief of staff:
CHETRY: Rahm Emanuel, a Washington veteran known for sharp elbows.
REID: A masterful politician with very sharp elbows.
SCARBOROUGH: Sharp political elbows.
CARD: I hope he takes his partisan elbows and keeps them close by to his body.
BROWNSTEIN: He has sharp political instincts and sharp elbows.
BROWN: You mentioned sharp elbows.
YELLIN: A reputation for sharp elbows.
Google "sharp elbow rahm" and you'll find even more.
They sure love that term now:
"Compared to the sharp-elbowed style common among New York politicians, [Caroline] Kennedy's personality in a series of recent media interviews has seemed quiet, soft-spoken."

Do they actually have any writers on staff? Or does one team do the bullet points for all the networks? It's like sophomore chemistry class; Mr. Kochanev received multiple copies of the same exact lab, printed in different fonts. Only he saw through it pretty quickly (senility and all), so why can't America?
