Either use emacsclient
    export EDITOR=emacsclient
    export VISUAL=emacsclient
    export CVSEDITOR=emacsclient

or use:
    emacs -q -nw

it takes less than 2 seconds to load on a Athlon 1200 MHz.

If you want to use it in EDITOR:
  ( echo '#!/bin/bash' ; echo 'exec emacs -q -nw' ) > ~/bin/quick-emacs
  export EDITOR=$HOME/bin/quick-emacs

Cat vomit hairball somewhere.
