Rahm Emanuel is looking for volunteers to circulate petitions for his mayoral campaign this weekend. To show his supporters how much they mean to him, he sent them all this personalized e-mail. It begins, “Dear First Name.”
Well, Rahm has called people worse things. “First Name” is better than “f---face” or “knucklef---,” two other well-known Emanuel endearments. The e-mail ends, “Thanks for all you do.” Whatever your first name is.
