My 100th Post!
What to make of the train wreck that is freshly resigned New York Congressman Eric Massa?
We're so used to public officials clinging grimly to office when caught in scandal that his resignation immediately upon being accused of harassing his aides was simultaneously damning yet refreshing. Then he had to go and muck up the deal by accusing the administration of trying to push him out of Congress because he was a No vote on health care, proclaiming that Rahm Emanuel had accosted him naked in the House of Representatives' shower, adding "snorkeling" to the national lexicon, and ultimately becoming the latest act on Glenn Beck's Crying Circus.
What now for the not-quite-one-term congressman from New York's 29th? Look for him on upcoming seasons of The Apprentice, I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, the Today Show Window to the World, and Snorkeling with the Stars.
