Sen. Cornyn likes 'Argo'

"Argo" has been out for a few weeks, receiving significant early Oscar buzz for director and star Ben Affleck, but Cornyn can likely use the election as an excuse if he's behind in his movie habits.

"Argo" is both a spy movie and a political drama, taking place during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis.

Cornyn is not the only lawmaker to share his amateur movie reviews with Twitter fans: Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) shared his enjoyment of "War Horse" last December, and Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), last November, said he liked "Ides of March" even if it did not portray real life.
