Mid-term elections are about six weeks away and it is a full court press for Congressional members and Senators to go out and campaign as if they are “one of the people”. Apparently that included Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) hitting Baton Rouge on Saturday visiting tailgate parties prior to LSU hosting Mississippi State. Although not dressed like an LSU fan (her shirt looks more like a blue cheetah pattern) she demonstrates that when in Rome, do as Romans do… which includes assisting in pulling off a successful keg stand.
The reaction via Twitter was, as you might expect, pretty funny filled with cheers from supporters and jeers from opponents. Comments like, “That’s what I call a Beer Summit” (referencing the Henry Louis Gates arrest controversy in which President Obama hosted a “Beer Summit” in 2009 at the White House) and “(Keg) Stand with Mary”, were all over Twitter after the photo was tweeted and retweeted.
