The White House Chief of Staff...butt naked in a shower stall with a democrat congressman? You can't make this stuff up! This has SNL skit written all over it:)

So what was he doing in a Member's only shower room? Maybe he was trolling for freshman democrats, saw Massa in a shower stall and decided to pick a fight? Or maybe it was just weiner envy!

But now that he knows there are no shower curtains on the Member's shower stalls I'm sure Barney will be spending a lot of time in the gym working out:)

For the first time I happened to switch channels through O'Reilly factor:

Interestingly, while O'Reilly seemed to believe the story, one of the other Fox reporters felt it was a ploy by Massa to cover for his own mistakes. In fact, one of them mentioned (can't remember which) that there WERE shower curtains in the Congressional gym showers :-)

OTOH, if it is a made-up story, why didn't Massa blame it on a Republican?

What is more noteworthy to my thinking is that the Dem party is "eating its own" in very public fashion.

Massa resigned yesterday in the face of an ethics investigation into allegations of sexual harassment (directed at males staff). He has been charging the Democratic leadership with pushing the investigation to force him out because of his opposition to the health reform bill. lhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/08/AR2010030804914.html]

Yes, Jeff, the background of the story was covered in the newscast I was watching. It still becomes a matter of the Ds dividing themselves.

O quoted by the NY Times today (their quote of the day):


"My question to them is: When is the right time? If not now, when? If not us, who?"
PRESIDENT OBAMA, (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/09/health/policy/09health.html?th&emc=th) on those seeking to delay a health care overhaul.


I think the question is not the time, but rather the "how".

If you would have taken a moment and watched the link I posted it CLEARLY states exactly that.

How ever, I realize that I in comparioson to one so knowledgeble as you, am soooo pedestrian.

Thanks for cleaning it all up Mr. Yardley!!

I've been wondering how Obama's Chief of Staff was even allowed in to the Congressional shower facility to pester the Members without any clothes on. I think I found the answer. My sources tell me that Rahmbo actually crawled up through the drain.

We live in Cuba now.

I would like to know exactly what was said to the staffer. I heard something on the radio this morning but don't know if it is true or not. It is my understanding that what was said was at a wedding reception. does anyone know for sure what was said and when it was said?

It doesn't really matter does it? He said, she said. Spin. Spin.
