Perverts, Scandals and Son of the Devil's Spawn Oh My! (Naked Politician Edition)
Oh Eric Massa, I love you if for no other reason than your endless entertainment value. This bitchfighting amongst Democrats never gets old.
The last time I was face-to-face with a naked man in the shower, he gave me a piece of something but it wasn't his mind and Christ, thank God he looked way hotter than our buddy Rahm. TMI?
Embattled Rep. Eric Massa used his final hours in office to settle scores with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and other Democrats he claims are pushing him out of office to clear the way for health care reform.
It sounds like the kind of bad dream that only congressmen have -- White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, stark naked, approaches you in the locker room to give you a piece of his mind for not supporting the president's budget.
Only this actually happened, according to Rep. Eric Massa, the embattled New York Democrat who resigned Monday and used his last hours in office to settle some scores with party leaders.
He reserved his most excoriating stuff for Emanuel, whom he called "son of the devil's spawn" on his weekly radio show Sunday.
"He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to a front end of a steam locomotive," Massa said. Illustrating his point, he told the story of how he winded up in an argument with the chief of staff while they were both naked in the congressional gym showers.
Massa said Emanuel came up to him last year, shortly after he entered Congress, while he was trying to clean up to give him grief about a budget vote.
Giving him grief eh? That's not what the man in the shower called it when he gave it to me but hey, why nit-pick?
