Why did Rahm Emanuel send a dead fish to someone?

I keep hearing about this on the news and I am curious to know the whole story.

Update:

I want to know a real answer not opinions of Obama.

    "Emanuel is known for his panache for treating donors right. He sends them cheesecakes from Eli's, the famous Chicago bakery. But the one pollster who notoriously ticked off Rahmbo received a 2 1/2 foot decomposing fish in the mail -- ripe, stinky, and to the point."

    It's an old mafia trade mark, if you received a dead fish , you are a walking dead man

    But then again , thugs surround themselves with thugs

    I don't know why he would do that, but that is as classless as it comes. His selection as chief of staff certainly does not make it seem as if Obama is a "post-partisan" politician like the mainstream media would like the public to believe.

    President Obama is free to hire anyone he likes

    I think that we will see a trend in Obama's appointments

    Obama is going to appoint people that have the same personality type as he does

    Ego Maniacs

    They will detroy each other

    He's a lefty nightmare, a complete loon. Help us all.

    He didn't like the pollster so he sent him a dead fish.

    He is out of his mind. He must think he is some kinda of mobster or something but either way its bad for the US.
