It is a national tragedy that Eric Massa has resigned from Congress, because the man is a veritable wealth of commentary that begs to be Command+C/Command+V'd* on every website in the world.
Massa's latest line is that Democrats, including Rahm Emanuel (whom Massa calls "the son of the devil's spawn"), forced him to resign because they knew he was a no vote on health care legislation. Parliamentary rules are complex, but is it really possible that the entire bill hinges on one freshman representative from New York? Who knows? All I know is, one time naked Rahm Emanuel yelled at naked Eric Massa in the shower, while they were both naked…
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.
"I'm sitting there showering, naked as a jaybird, [Ed. note: He showers sitting down? Is this common in men's locker rooms?] and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me because I wasn't gonna vote for the president's budget," Massa said. "Do you know how awkward it is to have a political argument with a naked man? … It's ridiculous."
He continued, "By the way, what the heck is he doing in the congressional gym? He goes there to intimidate members of Congress."
Whether any of this is true or not it certainly makes for good reading, so from an entertainment standpoint it's too bad Massa won't have a platform from which to spout his colorful opinions/conspiracy theor-
Right. Never mind.
