Sen. George LeMieux (R-Fla.) has been on C-SPAN a lot, and CNN plenty, but this week he stumbled upon a Food Network camera crew, and the rest is TV history.
Capitol Hill has been buzzing for weeks with the news that the Tune Inn would be featured on an episode of "Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives," the travel show hosted by the bleached blond Guy Fieri. But nobody told LeMieux until he got to the dive bar on Wednesday night for a burger and fries.
The cameras were rolling, and the host picked out LeMieux and interviewed him.
LeMieux's staff told USA Today that after the interview, the chef/host ferried the senator back to his office in a red convertible, prompting producers to call him worried that Fieri had disappeared.
From now on, LeMieux's spokesman said, whenever his staff can't locate the senator, it'll be known as "pulling a Guy."
