HE'S ON THE 'DO NOT CALL' LIST
New Congressman Heath Shuler (NC-11) was interviewed for a new book, "The Thumpin': How Rahm Emanuel and the Democrats Learned to Be Ruthless and Ended the Republican Revolution," by Naftali Bendavid, and in it Shuler claims that he refused to accept a call from El Presidente Bush in 2005 because he knew the president was going to try to talk him out of running for Congress on the Democratic ticket.
"Heath, honey, the President of the United States is on the phone for you."
"Tell 'im I'm not in. No, wait, tell him to go pound sand up his ass."
He learned to talk that way from Rahm Emanuel.
