For better or worse, hipstersdom is encroaching on all areas of our national identity: blue-ribboning our beer, wildly re-imagining our beloved children's books, and downgrading your handlebar mustache from "period-accurate for 1870 West Virginia", to just "ironic". Now, it's invading the Capital, according to Rosa DeLauro is a F***ing Hipster.
Hilariously captioning photos (taken all over DC, and beyond) of New Haven's eccentrically-attired Democratic rep, RSIAFH's the creation of two recent GW grads inspired by Rosa's clothing during recent healthcare debate coverage, and buoyed by their assertion that her political efforts are "what a hipster would do, if a hipster did anything". Recent photo-gems include:
DeLauro with Hillary at a pep-rally, speaking to an onlooker: "I can't believe you guys haven't heard the B.I.G./Party in the USA mash-up! You just embarrassed yourself in front of Hillary f'ing Clinton!"
A winking DeLauro, boasting at a board-meeting: "Found it in a thrift store off the Lorimer stop. 8 bucks. Guy who owned the place was listening to Nickleback. I know, right?"
DeLauro at a table with Nancy Pelosi, Rahm Emanuel, and others: "Then we chugged mad Bud Light Limes and ironically recreated the Last Supper. No joke."
DeLauro watching the White House Chief of Staff give a press conference: "Are you retarded, Rahm? Seriously? Everyone knows blogs don't f'ing update on weekends. This guy in front of me knows whats up."
Ever thirsty, the almost daily-updated blog will happily review your own submissions, but makes it clear that there's no promises you'll be included if your photos/text aren't as spot-on as your Victorian-era mutton-chops.
