Chris Murphy gets a big sloppy kiss from Buzzfeed:
WASHINGTON — Last week, Sen. Chris Murphy couldn’t get the new will.i.am and Britney Spears song “Scream & Shout” out of his head.
So, the freshman Democrat from Connecticut took the only action that made sense: He tweeted about it.
… As the youngest member of the United States Senate — an institution whose average member is, at 61, more than 20 years Murphy’s senior — Murphy often seems to be juggling authenticity and professionalism with a certain expectation of hipness. Having recently joined what he calls a “new, young nucleus” of rap-quoting, basketball-playing Senate Gen-Xers, he faces the daily challenge fitting his admittedly dorky persona into the new mold of the Capitol Hill cool kids club.
