WTF? Political Figures Have Naked Shower Fight.

In: WTF?

Fox News – It sounds like the kind of bad dream that only congressmen have — White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, stark naked, approaches you in the locker room to give you a piece of his mind for not supporting the president’s budget.

Only this actually happened, according to Rep. Eric Massa, the embattled New York Democrat who resigned Monday and used his last hours in office to settle some scores with party leaders.

“He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to a front end of a steam locomotive,” Massa said. Illustrating his point, he told the story of how he winded up in an argument with the chief of staff while they were both naked in the congressional gym showers.

Massa said Emanuel came up to him last year, shortly after he entered Congress, while he was trying to clean up to give him grief about a budget vote.

“I’m sitting there 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 because I wasn’t gonna vote for the president’s budget,” Massa said. “Do you know how awkward it is to have a political argument with a naked man? … It’s ridiculous.”

There’s nothing I hate more than old guys in the locker room that stand around naked trying to have a conversation with me. I’m not homophobic, but that doesn’t mean I have to be OK with naked dudes. When I’m in the locker room, I’m just looking to get showered, changed, and get out.

Unfortunately, there’s always at least one geezer in there that likes to comb his hair, blow dry, shave, and brush his teeth all before he puts on a pair of underwear. I understand people reach an age where they stop giving a fuck, but show some goddamn consideration for those of us that still do.

Anyway, is this not the most fucked up story you’ve ever read? Since when do hot political debates take place under the shower heads? Since when are Democratic reps getting bullied by naked old men in the locker room? Since when do government officials shower together? Why are there even congressional gym showers? I’m still under the suspicion that this story was written by The Onion.

    This is exactly why I got a gym membership at a place that is less than a minute away from me. I spend maybe 5 minutes total in the locker room putting my jacket and bag away and taking it out and leaving. I don't need some naked old man at the end of my workout trying to pick a fight with me because I spent 4 extra minutes on the bench than he wanted.
