Rahm and the Curtain-less Congressional Showers
The Congressional intimidation is the main story, and former congressman Eric Massa's vacillation on why exactly he's resigning. But, I can't seem to get past the curtain-less showers in the Congressional gym locker room. Am I the only one?
Of course the MSM (as will be evidenced by the AP story to follow) is running with a falsehood claiming that Conservatives are embracing this lunatic. WRONG.
"New York congressman Eric Massa resigned his House seat this week under a sexual harassment cloud, claiming fellow Democrats forced his ouster to keep him from voting against their health care bill.
It's the latest claim in a changing stream of explanations that have propelled him from a relatively obscure Democratic lawmaker to darling of conservative talk show hosts." (source)
I specifically listed to the top dogs yesterday to ensure that they didn't and Sean, Rush and Glenn all were of the same mind...the guy's a bit of a kook. Of course they wanted to talk to him --he's been scorned and cast aside by his party so he may be ripe with the need for revenge...and some juicy tidbits could be gleaned. That hardly makes him a Conservative darling. It makes him a willing patsy.
But back to the showers, seriously. Why in the world would the curtains have been removed?
"I was a congressman in my first eight weeks and I was in the congressional gym. And I went down and I worked out. I went into the showers, which, by the way, I for the life of me can't figure out why they took all the shower curtains off the shower stalls in the congressional shower.
I mean the last thing I want to look is my fellow colleagues naked. But they don't have any shower curtains down in the gym. And I'm sitting there showering, naked as a jay bird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger at my chest, yelling at me because I wasn't going to vote for the president's budget.
Do you know how awkward it is to have a political argument with a naked man? By the way, what the heck is he doing in the congressional gym? He goes there to intimidate members of Congress..." (source)
And was it a deliberate move that Fox had a Democrat named Dick (Harpootlian) there to comment on nude Rahm...?
