ZOMG! America's First Gen Y Congressman

Politico has an exclusive interview with newly elected Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Il), the first congressman born in the 80s:

Q. In the House, you will have 434 new coworkers. How will you convince them to look past your age?

A. Well I've found it's a lot like high school. You show up, you do your homework, you ask intelligent questions, you bring forward well-thought-out ideas and you quickly earn the respect of your peers, and that's what I've had to do in the state legislature.
Hopefully this pizzaface will cease text messaging his BFFs in the bathroom stall and understand that he's running a "big country" here. God have mercy on us all.
