While giving an interview about his upcoming departure from congress, Eric Massa (D-NY) expressed his personal thoughts on White House Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emmanuel. Said thoughts included information on Rahm's origins:
“Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn, disgraced Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY ) said during a radio show. “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.”
Fond memories of conversation with Rahm:
"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."
And..um..an intersting account in the congressional gym:
"Let me tell you a story about Rahm Emanuel," Massa said on the program. "I was a congressman in my first eight weeks; I was in the congressional gym, I went down and I worked out and I went into the showers ... I'm sitting there showering, naked as a jaybird and here comes Rahm Emanuel not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, and he starts poking a finger in 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?"
