David Brooks on "Meet the Press" last year. (Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images)

"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, 'Ewww, get me out of here.' "

-- New York Times columnist David Brooks on Washington's "loss of dignity" Friday on MSNBC. In an effort to be less "dignified and stuffy," a wound-up Brooks told us more than we needed to know about this town's lonely "emotional freaks" -- but not the identity of the groper, when it happened or why he didn't remove said hand from said thigh.

So if David Brooks didn't like the Republican Senator's hand on his leg, why did he allow it to stay there through the entire dinner? Why didn't he ask the Senator to remove his hand???

Geez, what won't the Post sell for access?

At first I thought it had to be one of the "aunties" like Orrin Hatch or Mitch McConnell. Then, after considering that you allowed this senator to grope your thigh for a couple of hours I realized it must have been someone hot who, after eliminating Bob Casey for being a democrat, must be John Thune.
But why would a guy who looks like John Thune have to settle for cheap thrills from a fat boy? So maybe it was Hatch or McConnell and you encouraged it because it is all you are getting?

Anyone else willing to venture a guess.

John Thune does not cop feels from fat guys. He is into the gym.

Hmmmmm? What about Nelson from Florida?

Why bring it up at all if he's not going to tell us who it was.

To Cheryl3 - He is softening the ground so folks won't be surprised when they get their invitations to his/her "coming out" party.
