One of James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal‘s recurring leitmotifs goes something like this:
Great Orators of the Democratic Party
- “One man with courage makes a majority.”–Andrew Jackson
- “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”–Franklin D. Roosevelt
- “The buck stops here.”–Harry S. Truman
- “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”–John F. Kennedy
And we can now add a phrase uttered by Eric Massa (D-NY), recently deposed congressman, during his interview today with Glenn Beck to the list:
“Now they’re saying I groped a male staffer. Yeah, I did. Not really grope him. I tickled him ’til he couldn’t breathe and then four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday.”
As of the moment, rumors that Massa will soon be joining the Village People to perform “In The Navy” cannot be substantiated:
Update: Heh: “The Navy never should have repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tickle.”

Related: “They have lowered the bar so far I don’t know what kind of world these people live in. I can’t imagine such a situation. This is so alien to the vast majority of Americans. It defies explanation.”
