Former congressman John Dingell (D-Mich.) was mentioned in Thursday's Politico Playbook  for being spotted with friends and former staffers at a D.C. bar.

So the longest-serving member of Congress, whose Twitter account is know for sharp, witty tweets poking fun at himself and others, sarcastically tweeted a screenshot of the "scoop," and used the favorite "area man" Twitter joke format to point out that yes, he's alive, and yes, he still hangs out with friends.

Well played, person who runs John Dingell's Twitter account.
