Washington (CNN) – The Internet is kind of like that annoying friend from college who remembers you at your sloppy drunk worst and keeps telling the stories over and over again.
While combing through 25,000 documents related to the now-closed investigation into Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, when he was the Milwaukee County executive, we came across this gem.
Walker’s chief of staff at the time emailed him about the “checkered past” of a doctor hired for the county’s Behavioral Health Division, saying she had at one time been a thong model.
Walker's terse response: "Get rid of the MD ASAP."
Okay, now admit it. You’re humming Sisqo’s “Thong Song”
Texas Attorney general Greg Abbott, Gov. Rick Perry, and Sen. Ted Cruz danced a two-step in their efforts to avoid being linked with—but not totally disavow—the comments of conservative activist and 1970s-80s rocker Ted Nugent. Meanwhile, Scott Brown the former Massachusetts senator who's thinking about running in New Hampshire, avoided controversy by finding a safer 70s-80s rock act to bromance.
Brown got geeked jamming with the band on its 1978 hit "Surrender."
Why don’t you get right on that?
Gee, you think? Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander had a thought on how to get things moving on confirming the backlog of Obama administration judicial nominees instead of the time they spend traveling on Monday and Friday to and from their home districts.
Given Congress’ record of do-nothingness, increasing productivity would be a good start.
Why can't we be friends?
Kentucky Sens. Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul weren't working on a pot farm and Kentucky's not about to join Washington and Colorado in legalizing weed. The two were able to get a provision in the farm bill that will help their state research industrial hemp.
His own man
Uh huh. But that last name probably doesn’t hurt.
George P. Bush - the grandson of former President George H.W. Bush, nephew of former President and Texas Gov. George W. Bush, and the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush - wants you to know he’s on his own as he runs for Texas land commissioner.
