One thing that we have to admit about Eric Massa. His time in congress has been an amusing one.
Last week, Mr. Massa (D-NY) announced that he was retiring at the end of his one term in congress. He said that it was for health reasons.
Then revelations came out that Mr. Massa was being investigated on charges on sexual harassment of a male staffer.
Now, Mr. Massa is saying the real reason he is leaving congress is because Team Dear Leader was pushing him out.
Why you may wonder?
Why because Mr. Massa voted against the Dear Leader, President Obama's so-called health care "reform" scam.
Here is some wit and wisdom of Mr. Massa:
"Mine is now the deciding vote on the health care bill, "And this administration and this House leadership have said, quote-unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill. And now they've gotten rid of me, and it will pass. You connect the dots."
OK, time to get Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts and the movie "Conspiracy Theory" out of mothballs.
But, wait! Mr. Massa went on his radio program last night to, essentially, out himself and the claims of the male staffer.
If that is not enough, and it really should be, Mr. Massa paints a very ugly picture of he and White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel in a shower as Mr. Emmanuel is harassing Mr. Massa over his health care "reform" vote. BLEECH!
Now, Mr. Massa is heading to Glenn Beck's television program tomorrow afternoon for the full hour. This may make the whole of the United States cry.
The worst part of this story is that it may all very well be true. That Mr. Massa may have been set up by the White House. But that Mr. Massa was stupid enough to know that in this day and age, one should not make any comment that you think may get you in trouble.
I kind of wonder if Mr. Massa is not making himself more of a messiah figure than he is. After all, there are the Bart Stupak Democrats that may kill this Godforsaken legislation. There are still a lot of moderate Democrats that may not be so keen as to be part of Nancy Pelosi's Suicide Squad.
But one thing is for sure.
It is good to see that the Repub, er Democrats are keeping their kooks in line. Unlike the Demo, er Republicans.
Even if Mr. Massa's claims of White House chicanery pan out, Mr. Massa looks like a nut job. Mr. Massa looks like former Democrat congressman Jim Traficant. Only without the cool rug on his head.
This shows that the White House really is the amateur hour.
And you trust these guys with your health care?
