Paging Senator Packwood

Apparently, our majority counterparts have a hot new intern.

I have yet to see him, but initial reports are "a young Paul Newman," "Wow!" (from a woman who typically doesn't comment on such things), and "he's giving Brad Pitt a run for his money."

My colleagues are busy dreaming up errands that will require Hott Intern to come to our offices. "Send him down with some copies of National Journal!" Followed closely by "Quick! Hide our copies of National Journal."

Rumor has it that his intern coordinator took one look at Hott Intern and decided he was hired, before looking at his resume.

So in case you were worried, sexual harassment is still alive and well on the Hill.

Okay, that overstates things a bit. The forty- and fifty-something administrative staff are fawning over a twenty-year-old white boy, over whom they have no direct authority and with whom they have no meaningful working relationship (other than to take the hand-off when he comes down to deliver something. A task they are now fighting over).

I miss Lumpyhead, but on some days this job sure can be entertaining.

Maybe he needs to deliver something to the Senate. I'm sure we actually have a Senator Packwood nameplate around here somewhere

I believe that photos will be required. You need a photo showing what you do for a living, a photo interacting with someone.....hmmmmm, maybe an intern.....yes, an action shot......but what intern could you use?
