Obligatory audio: Rep. Massa on Rahm Emanuel

From Real Clear Politics: “Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn, Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) said. “He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive.”

Rep. Massa describes a confrontation with Emanuel in a shower: “I am showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me.”

More from Breitbart.tv. Audio from this morning below the quote…

“When I voted against the cap and trade bill, the phone rang and it was the chief of staff to the president of the United States of America, Rahm Emanuel, and he started swearing at me in terms and words that I hadn’t heard since that crossing the line ceremony on the USS New Jersey in 1983,” Massa said. “And I gave it right back to him, in terms and words that I know are physically impossible.”

Editor’s note: In another section of the interview Massa hints that he may rescind his resignation: “I’m not going to be a Congressman as of 5 o’clock [Monday] afternoon. The only way to stop that is for me to rescind my resignation. That’s the only way to stop it. And the only way that’s going to happen is if this becomes a national story.” See the Roll Call link below for more.

    I posted this clip from the movie Airplane when that boy made it into the news for directing air traffic control….but now the clip is more fitting to an exchange between Massa and Rahm Emanuel……

    Now we know what lurks under the thin veneer of Democrat party "unity" in all this.  They are their own worst enemies (I thought it was me!).  Don't think for one second that other Dems haven't received similar or worse treatment as the Obama machine tries to steamroll socialism over the country.


    Why is it that I don't expect to see this on the national news tonight?

      As expected: nary a mention on SeeBS.  But there was lots of information about soft drinks in schools.  Too bad the fate of health care for those same kids is in jeopardy and the Perky One doesn't see fit to report on it.
