Kay Hagan vs the skinny-dipping Senators

Not really that funny:

Kay Hagan just wanted to swim. It was late 2008, and the Democrat was newly arrived on Capitol Hill as North Carolina’s junior senator-elect. But Hagan was told that the Senate pool was males-only. Why? Because some of the male senators liked to swim naked.

It took an intervention by Senator Chuck Schumer, head of the Rules Committee, to put a stop to the practice, but even then “it was a fight,” remembers pollster Celinda Lake, who heard about the incident when the pool revolt was the talk among Washington women.

Really? And it took a female Senator complaining to make that stop? If I got elected to the Senate (work with me on this), and went to take a swim only to find nekkid Senators wallowing around in the water, I would have "accidentally" dropped a plugged-in hair dryer in there. Nobody wants to see that.

Strom Thurmond should have been arrested

for pulling a stunt like this:

In one infamous 1993 episode, the late South Carolina Republican Strom Thurmond tried to fondle Washington Democrat Patty Murray’s breast on the Senate elevator. So notoriously predatory was Thurmond that when Susan Collins came to the Senate in 1997, she was warned to avoid getting on an elevator alone with him. A Republican from Maine, Collins describes publicly for the first time being headed for the senators-only elevator and seeing Thurmond walking in the same direction. She did a U-turn and took the stairs. “The reason I remember the incident so well is because it was observed by one of my Republican male colleagues,” recalls Collins. He “started laughing because he knew exactly why I was turning around and not getting on the elevator.”

Yeah, that's real funny. Jackass.

Well, considering his big-ass gavel

was likely compensating for a tiny weenus, he probably wouldn't be one of the skinny-dipping Senators. Might be a boob-grabber, though...
