Eric Massa, the now former congressman from New York, is getting all kinds of attention from conservatives. Rush said on his radio show that he wants to make this a national story and Glen Beck will be interviewing him for the full hour on his Fox News show later today. Hannity and Levin talked up his controversial statements as well. This man is a disgrace not only to New York, but to all of us. This is the type of person we elect to high public office in this country?
Eric Massa can't even keep to the same story. First it was for health reasons that he was stepping down, then it because he is being forced out by the democrats in order to pass the health care "reform" bill. If he truly believes that he is the only way to stop this bill from passing then why is walking away? He was not forced to resigned. He left on his own accord.
He has only been in office since last January. In that time he has not gotten one piece of legislastion to the floor. According to the reporting of Michelle Malkin:
“He’s been a progressive zealot and political opportunist his entire career,” Malkin wrote Monday afternoon. “He’s claimed conspiracy before, is intimately bonded with the nutroots and climbed the political ladder with backing from the odious, anti-war-hoaxer-embracing Gen. Wesley Clark. What Massa dismissively calls his ‘salty old sailor’ talk should raise bright-red flags about possible long-standing predatory behavior.”
While his statements make good theater, he is nothing but yet another disgraced politican that doesn't deserve this 15 minutes of fame. Let this sad, disgraced little man go away. The last thing that conservatives should be doing at this point is giving this nutjob a stage.
