Caption This Photo (Polis Polo Bow-Tie Edition)

Via Twitter, as seen on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives today. Please shield the eyes of impressionable, nerdy children:


Reaction from the peanut gallery was swift and brutal:

Dennis Tang at GQ:

Worst ever? Yeah, right, how bad could it possiblyyyyyeeesh, okay, yeah, now that I look at it. Definitely. Is that a purple golf polo? With a bow tie? Is that a clip-on? Did Craig Sager win a seat somewhere? Am I having a seizure? Can someone make it stop?

And the worst part? It's not the first time. Help us intervene constructively.

    I thought gay men were known for their style.

    There is no amount of cool that can pull that look off, none.

    "What can I say? Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) gave it to me as a gift."


    Bow-Ties: They're not just for George Will, any longer.

    It's not the bow tie, it's the polo shirt.

    Caption: I am a US Representative from a safe district with no ambition for higher office.

    I'm kinda jealous of the Julius Caesar comb-over.  If only I had that much hair!

    In Durango, he'd be overdressed. So, I guess I understand the horror.

    "Please disregard the messenger and focus on the message.  Here is what I want to talk about. . . ."

    Too bad we'll never find out what his concerns about consumer cell phone rights were.  Pols you guys dropped the ball on this one.  Fun is fun but substance over image is the standard by which we are supposed to be judging people.

    OMG, you all really are equal-opportunity haters.  And here I thought that you just made fun of women's hairstyles and odd clothing choices.

    I think he looks quite debonair, although I'd be tempted to ask him to pepper my salad.

      I think he looks like he's asking, "Do you have a reservation?"

        Maybe he's trying out a disguise in case the new Arizona bill doesn't get vetoed and he ever has to go there. In order to not serve gays, first they have to figure out which potential customers are gay and who would suspect that any gay man would be out in public dressed like that?

    Senator Polis, don't even worry about it. We're just ahead of our times. My adult children say that my own fashion sense is: "I don't give a f*ck."
