Rep. Loretta Sanchez’s “Call Me Maybe” parody, with summer interns

Rep. Loretta Sanchez, right, and interns, in the latest “Call Me Maybe” video parody. (The office of Rep. Loretta Sanchez)
It fell to Rep. Loretta Sanchez to combine, at last, your two favorite things of the summer: Capitol Hill interns and “Call Me Maybe” video parodies. In what is believed to be the first congressional take on the Carly Rae Jepsen earworm, the California Democrat grooves to the tune from behind her desk — while watching the YouTube viral video of the Harvard baseball team doing the same, and mimicking their herky-jerky dance moves. Then a deadpan chorus line of office interns pop up to join her. Hey, how come only 60 seconds of music? “We were just trying to take a minimum of her time,” spokeswoman Adrienne Watson told us. Oh, and btw — why? After a rough couple days of partisan mudslinging, she said, it “seemed like a great way to inject some lightheartedness into the week.” Plus, “Call Me Maybe”! Who can resist? (See the video, below. . . )
