For Obama and his allies, writes Michael Graham at the Boston Herald, Eric Massa-mania couldn’t be hitting at a worse time:
The problem isn’t Massa’s ridiculous claim that he was forced out of Congress because he opposes the health care bill. What hurts is that the Massa mess highlights the Obama administration’s desperation and incompetence on health care.
That’s very funny, but in the interests of accuracy I have to correct Graham on something. The Emanuel-Massa shower encounter apparently took place a year ago, during debate on the budget bill, not during the more recent health care battles. Still, the story came out just now when the Obamathon is at its height, and it does capture the Demoncrats’ mad desperateness.
Also, the hilarious phrase “Brokebudget Mountain” comes from Graham’s column. When preparing this entry, I had originally quoted the paragraph it appears in, but it didn’t work and I took it out, then thought of using it as the title instead. Here’s the beginning of the column with the quote in context:
Naked bid for vote?
