Even politicians aren’t immune to the hype of a royal wedding.
Following the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton at 11 a.m. London time Friday, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) tweeted:
Just catching up here. So she wore a Steve McQeen dress? #TheOneHeWoreInBullitt
Weiner riffed off the fact that the bride, along with her sister Pippa as maid of honor, wore gowns by Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton.
In fact, neither dress resembled anything actor Steve McQueen wore in the classic car-chase movie "Bullitt."
Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich (R) tweeted that a National Rifle Association convention in Pittsburgh is “better than a Royal Wedding in London,” and Rep. John Carney (D-Del.) retweeted a follower saying, “The married couple I'm interested in today is Shuttle Commander Mark Kelly and Representative Gabrielle Giffords.”
The launch of the shuttle Endeavour is also planned for today, with the still-recovering Giffords (D-Ariz.) expected to attend to say farewell to her husband, the shuttle’s commander.
