Merely yelling is so passé. Facial shaving? Sooo last week.
The political world has a special way of taking everything to the next level. Why yell when you can yell…nude? According to U.S. Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY), that’s exactly what Rahm Emanuel did to him.
“…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 going to vote for the president’s budget. Do you know how awkward it is to have a political argument with a naked man?”

I imagine that’s pretty awkward. But I think there are two things that could have made it more awkward:
- “Pour Some Sugar on Me” could have been playing
- There could have been pictures taken (safe for work)
Rep. Massa is not without controversy himself, though. Maybe nude Rahm is karma?
Crist could have been content to stop at “Rubio spent $130 at a salon and that’s crazy.” But, uh, back waxing? I don’t even want to think about that image. It almost sounds like a Yo Momma joke. Yo Marco’s so winning, Imma say he got a back wax.
Seriously, what’s not to love about politics?
