    Were this to be true, you wouldn't be posting on public political forums... if you were smart that is.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Eric Massa slams Democrat leaders for ethics probe Let's be more polite.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Again, someone who doesn't know what he's talking about. Jesus Christ. You all are so gullible. And it's the HOUSE, not the senate.

    Please ask your question in English. And you're likely asking me for information I don't have.

    Democrats attacking because of a gay issue. How else do homosexuals get new recruits without what normal people wold call inappropriate of offensive comments.

    Barney Frank I'm sure would welcome the attention.

    And what is more gay, if it happened a wedding or Ralm Emanual confronting Messa and standing so close while touching him.

    I personally might have decked Ralm for invading my space.

    Talk about inappropriate. Doesn't Ralm have a shower in his home?

    Really makes me wonder about the timing and possible hidden meanug.

    It reminds me of Obama Being Accused of Gay Sex, Drugs, and Murder.

    Is this a Chicago thing.

    I make no accusations just asking.

    How close are Obama and Ralm

    If you're going to insult Rahm Emanuel, you could at least get his name right.

    What I find so hilarious is that you all are so quick to believe a guy who has told multiple stories as to why he is quitting his job.

    If my boss said to me, "I should be frakking you," I would be in shock. That kind of statement is so egregious that only an asshole talks like that.

    PostPartisan - What's up with Massa?

    From the article:

    On Friday, Massa announced he would not seek reelection due to health. All the while, there were rumors that he was giving up his seat because of a sexual harassment allegation leveled by a male staffer. By Sunday, he was on WKPQ radio explaining the (I was just joshin') incident and declaring the implications a smear. But he also said that he was resigning altogether, effective 5:00 p.m. on Monday. . . .


    Massa told a local reporter on Friday, “It’s not that I can fight or beat these allegations, I’m guilty.” If that's the case then why not go quietly? All this conspiracy talk strikes me as a distraction -- and not a very good one.
    This guy has no class whatsoever. Offering to help a guy with his handjob? Are you kidding me?

    but is an absence of class a legitimate basis to run the guy out of office? if that were the standard the halls of congress would almost be empty

    let's see what massa had to say for the incident behind the 'probe':
    “On New Year’s Eve, I went to a staff party. It was actually a wedding for a staff member of mine; there were over 250 people there. I was with my wife. And in fact we had a great time. She got the stomach flu,” he said.

    Massa explained that he then danced first with the bride, who was not identified, and then with a bridesmaid. He said multiple cameras recorded the incident.

    “I said goodnight to the bridesmaid,” Massa continued. “I sat down at the table where my whole staff was, all of them by the way bachelors.”

    “One of them looked at me and as they would do after, I don’t know, 15 gin and tonics, and goodness only knows how many bottles of champagne, a staff member made an intonation to me that maybe I should be chasing after the bridesmaid and his points were clear and his words were far more colorful than that,” Massa said. “And I grabbed the staff member sitting next to me and said, ‘Well, what I really ought to be doing is frakking you.’ And then [I] tossled the guy’s hair and left, went to my room, because I knew the party was getting to a point where it wasn’t right for me to be there. Now was that inappropriate of me? Absolutely. Am I guilty? Yes.”

    sounds like the kind of candid, playful discussion i have encountered with friends who are openly gay. those who would be offended by it are those who are uncomfortable in their own heterosexuality.

    my challenge to you is to identify someone among them whose violation was for a lesser transgression than massa
