That's Iowa Republican State Representative Ross Paustian, enjoying what he claims was a "gag gift" while totally paying attention to his political duties.

Ludacris and his foundation were honored in Atlanta for their decade-long work in improving public education. On the way out, of course, he had to drop this little ditty.

Rick Santorum may have said some pretty crazy stuff in the past, but that’s nothing compared to this woman.

Santorum was taking questions at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last weekend, when a lady stepped up to the microphone and went off on the most insane rant ever.

Did you know President Obama the “Communist dictator” once tried to nuke Charleston? Yup, according this retired school teacher it’s totally true.

“He’s trying to destroy the United States,” she says. “The Congress knows this. What kind of games is the Congress of the United States playing with the citizens of the United States?”

She doesn’t seem to ever really get to the meat of her question and eventually they cut her off. But it takes a while, and Santorum just stands there pretending to listen.

“I’m not a sitting member of the Senate,” he says afterwards. “So I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff.”

Rep. Don Young of Alaska certainly has problems, but wolves aren’t one of them.

At a House Natural Resources Committee hearing this week, Young was complaining about how members of Congress were rallying together to help protect the gray wolf, when they don’t have to deal with them on a regular basis like he does.

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

And then, likely due to a full moon, he offered up this completely insane proposal.

“I’d like to introduce them to your district,” he said. “You wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

A spokesperson for Young later clarified to the Washington Post that the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”

Alaska has “the largest remaining population of gray wolves in the United States,” according to Defenders of Wildlife.

Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.

During an interview with Bishop on the Today show in Australia this week, host Karl Stefanovic brought up news that Governor-General Peter Cosgrove’s staff wanted a $2000 Thermomix for their kitchen.

He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)

“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.

Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?

Republican state Rep. Vito Barbieri appeared to be schooled on female genitalia Monday during a committee meeting about a bill that would restrict how women get abortion-inducing drugs.

In the clip he seems to be bit confused about how vaginas work. Fortunately, There’s a Swedish children’s song that might help him out.

Dr. Julie Madsen was in the middle of her testimony discussing colonoscopies via pill camera, when Barbieri posed his unusual question.

“Can this same procedure then be done in a pregnancy? Swallowing a camera and helping the doctor determine what the situation is?” he asked.

Madsen was very polite in her response, noting that pills don’t typically end up in one’s v@gina.

In follow-up interviews, however, Berbieri clarifies that he was just being “rhetorical’ and that he probably could have made that more clear. You think?
