But … but … bloggers use cuss words!

This happens, and all David Brooks, house conservative for The New York Times’ op-ed page, can think to discuss in light of it is “dignity”:

BROOKS: You know, all three of us spend a lot of time covering politicians and I don’t know about you guys, but in my view, they’re 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.


BROOKS: I can only imagine what happens to you guys.

O’DONNELL: Sorry, who was that?

BROOKS: I’m not telling you, I’m not telling you.


Note to self: If I ever become an op-ed columist for The New York Times and I attend a lunch at which a U.S. senator sitting next to me places his hand on my inner thigh under the table and leaves it there, I should 1) stab that hand with a dinner fork and 2) write my next column about the experience, naming the individual involved.

I guess that means I won’t be invited to lunches with U.S. senators any time soon, but I’ll just have to figure out a way to live with that.
