Eric Massa's (Unintentional) Gift to the White House

More

So everyone thought that Eric Massa would go on Glenn Beck's show and trash the White House and fuel conspiracy theories about Chicago-like intimidating tactics used to threaten lawmakers into voting for the health care bill.


But the first thing that Massa said was that he wasn't forced out, "I forced myself out."

Beck's night ended there. His lip curled up.

Then Massa used the platform to (a) look a little crazy (b) defuse a conspiracy theory that he helped to create and (c) lambast Beck a bit for his own overstatements.

Take off those tinfoil hats, folks....
