WASHINGTON ARTS NEWS – AT 10:07 A.M. ET: It's a pleasure to report that some of our senators have a healthy sense of humor. From The Politico:
It was a bipartisan-ish affair on Thursday night at Woolly Mammoth Theatre. Twelve female senators (three Republicans, nine Democrats) came to see Chicago comedy troupe The Second City perform "A Girl’s Guide to Washington Politics," which includes a roasting of many female pols including Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Nancy Pelosi.
In attendance: Sens. Claire McCaskill, Olympia Snowe, Blanche Lincoln, Maria E. Cantwell, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Mikulski, Debbie Stabenow, Jeanne Shaheen, Susan Collins, Kay Hagan, Amy Klobuchar and Lisa Murkowski.
COMMENT: Good for the women. Laughter never hurts, and I'm biased toward Second City, as it originally had a connection with the University of Chicago, which I attended.
I note the absence from the list of one Barbara Boxer. She's not much fun anyway.
