I just have to comment on this whole Eric Massa mess and that is just what it is, a hot mess. Last night he admitted to groping male aides but not in a sexual manner. And admitted to having "tickle" fights with them and they piling up on top of him. Made some comment to the tune of he just never really got out of Navy mode when he went to the Senate.
Okay, I had two brothers in the Navy and for some reason the idea of "tickle" fights happening on a ship just seem, well silly!
Many New Yorkers are ashamed to say they are from the state right now because of all the stuff going on, not me. Since I'm not really from here, LOL! But the truth of the matter is I'm just cracking up everytime Massa opens his mouth. The guy is clearly lost and has not a clue. Said he was to familier with his staff? Really? Seriously? OMFG, even I know you don't do half the crap he did if you're in Washington.
And if he honestly thought he was going to "change" the way Washington works, in his freshman year and he was going to accomplish so much, really, seriously?
I think what happened is he saw how much Hillary Clinton was able to do her first time in the Senate and for some odd reason thought he would be able to do the same or have the same power. The difference between Hillary and Eric is pretty basic stuff. She was a freshman senator with TONS OF POWERFUL connections when she walked into the door. She had more power than most of the sitting senators simply because of her previous address, you remember the one, on Pennsylvania Avenue in DC? Yeah, Massa walked in with nothing. Absolutely nothing to offer and thought he could just start making waves and doing whatever he wanted. It doesn't work that way.
I've been told I can be clueless on how politics works. I fully aware of how politics work but the only thing I can do about it is cast my vote on election day. What happens in between elections, I will leave to the experts, I will write letters, make a phone call if needed if I see something that is truly important to me, but otherwise, let the machine work.
Okay, that's enough for now. :)
