Today's political conundrum is brought to you by US Congressman Eric Massa, who asks, plaintively, "Do you know how awkward it is to have a political argument with a naked man?"
The congressman, allegedly, was confronted in a White House men's changing room by a furious Rahm Emanuel, the chief of staff, who was berating Massa for not voting for President Obama's budget. Mr Massa insists that he was intimidated by Mr Emanuel, not because he was furious, but because he was naked — a claim that the White House has dismissed as rubbish.
But I have to say, I think the congressman is on to something. Literally with nowhere to hide, he had no argument to put up against the chief of staff. I'm thinking a naked Bibi and Abu Mazen. I will lay bets that a peace deal would be hammered out extremely quickly...
