Okay, Just Stand There Then

Paul Ryan is opposing the Chicago teachers' strike with the line "We stand with Rahm Emanuel!"  It sort of reminds me of the moment in Three Kings where the American troops rally Iraqis by saying "George Bush wants you to stand up for yourself!"  As far as I know, nobody has particularly positive feelings towards Rahm Emanuel.  I guess it's supposed to be a clever move where you divide the left against itself by siding with a popular leader against a left-wing interest group, except the leader isn't actually that popular, so nobody cares.

Of course, Ryan stands with Rahm, the two of them represent the interests of the Plutocracy
