Is That a Congressman?

... Or a NASA telemetry technician circa 1966?

(Pictured above: From left to right: U.S. Rep. Tom Petri; candidate for the state's 53rd Assembly seat, Mike Hatch; and someone who looks suspiciously like former U.S. Rep. Mark Green)

If you guessed Congressman, you'd be correct! That's Tom Petri rocking out the tie, short sleeves and writing implement in breast pocket look that used to scream "I will surrender my lunch money without a fight!" but now says "Watch the fuck out, predatory student loan lenders!"

Way to kick it old school, Congressman!

53 - 56 has a good rundown on the candidates running for the 53rd assembly seat, which includes Mr. Hatch, pictured above.
