Just another game of republican touchy feely

New York Times columnist David Brooks, in a conversation on MSNBC (via Think Progress):

In my view, [politicians] are all emotional freaks of one sort or another. They're guaranteed to violate 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.
Wow. What the hell do you even say to that. I'm disappointed that Brooks is holding out on us as to the name of said politician.

Of course, what Brooks isn't telling us is why he wanted someone to "get me out of here".
