The Mississippi Democrat was spotted attending an afternoon vote in jeans, a dark turtleneck and, to top it off, a denim jacket.
It’s a look first popularized by country crooners like Billy Ray Cyrus, who would often forgo Thompson’s turtleneck in favor of nothing underneath.
An excuse might be tougher to come by for Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), who was seen leaving the Democratic Caucus meeting Tuesday night with a white plastic spoon sticking out of his jacket’s lapel pocket. The spoon, combined with the avid cyclist’s green bicycle pin and his congressional pin, made for an altogether busy-looking lapel.
ITK hopes Blumenauer was on his way to eat some soup.
