James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) (C) attends a news conference on "energy, climate-gate and President Obama's trip to Copenhagen" with members of the House Republican American Energy Solutions Group at the U.S. Captiol December 8, 2009 in Washington, DC. What some climate change critics are calling "climate-gate," emails and other documents between scientists were hacked or stolen from a British climate-change research center.

    He must have been bored of talking about the payroll tax. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) was overhead in an airport lounge by a Democratic operative talking about Michelle Obama’s derrière. According to Fishbowl DC, Sensenbrenner was heard speaking into his cellphone, saying he recently responded to a woman who praised the first lady by saying, “She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.” Reached for comment, a Sensenbrenner aide told Fishbowl DC "he plans to contact the first lady’s office to apologize for his comments."
