David Brooks: Wide-Stancing GOP Senator, Groped My “Inner Thigh” During “Whole” Dinner

July 10, 2009

(ChattahBox)—New York Times columnist David Brooks had quite the story to tell Nora O’Donnell of MSNBC on Friday, describing Washington politicians as “emotional freaks” who invade your personal space.

Brooks described a Washington dinner party, where a certain male Republican Senator (Let the guessing games begin), he refused to name, placed his hand on Brook’s manly inner thigh for an entire dinner party.

Was Brooks afraid of making a scene? Why would he allow the male senator to keep his hand on Brook’s inner thigh for an entire dinner party?

Brooks appeared on MSNBC to talk about his recent New York Times column where he lamented the disappearance in Washington of what he called “the dignity code.”

“I don’t know about you guys, but in my view, they’re [politicians] all emotional freaks of one sort or another. They’re guaranteed to invade your personal space, touch you. I sat next to a Republican senator once at dinner and he had his hand on my inner thigh the whole time. I was like, ehh, get me out of here,” said Brooks.

He went on to add that he has spoken to many young female congressional staffers, who have had to fend off politicians experiencing a mid-life crisis.

[T]”hey’ll have these middle age guys who are sort of in the middle of a mid-life crisis. Emotionally needy, they don’t know how to do it and sort of like these St. Bernards drooling everywhere,” said Brooks.

At some point, Nora O’Donnell laughingly asked Brooks if he had a few drinks with lunch.

Now, who could that randy thigh-grabbing, wide-stancing Republican have been?
