Expletive Shower

Rahm Emanuel has been branded the “son of the devil’s spawn” by Republican Eric Mass, who also said, “He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote."

“Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn,” Republican Eric Massa (D-NY) said in a radio interview, when asked if Emanuel has the dirtiest mouth in Washington. “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,” he continued to his bemused interviewer, who joked “Don’t hold back now, let it all out.” Massa went on to describe a confrontation with Emanuel in the Congressional shower room, which, he points out in an outraged fashion, doesn’t have shower doors, so all the Congressmen have to see each other naked. He says: “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 and all because I wasn’t going to vote for the presidential budget. Do you know how awkward it is to have an argument with a naked man?”
