I wonder if the indictments will put a damper on the playground feeling in D.C.?
The youngest member of Congress says he thinks he has Capitol Hill all figured out, though he’s been on the job only 10 months. “This place is a much more sophisticated junior high school,” 30-year-old Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., said recently in an interview…
At a White House lunch for new members, President Bush teased McHenry about his boyish appearance despite his prematurely graying hair. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., a former high school wrestling coach, put him in a playful headlock after a conference of House Republicans.
Brash, enthusiastic and a strong believer in an aggressive conservative agenda, McHenry is clearly looked upon by GOP leaders as just the type of eager-to-please foot soldier needed for carrying on their cause.
