PETER SAGAL, HOST:
We want to remind everyone to join us most weeks back at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Illinois. For tickets and more information you can go to wbez.org, and you can find a link at our website, waitwait.npr.org. Right now, panel, time for you to answer some questions about this week's news.
Brian, Republicans have had a hard time courting younger voters. So they're turning to a new spokesman, a gentleman named Scott Greenberg. He is the first known Republican what?
BRIAN BABYLON: Give me a hint.
SAGAL: Well with him, the party platform is skinny jeans but a big tent.
BABYLON: Oh these are - a Republican hipster?
SAGAL: A Republican hipster, the first one found.
(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)
BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT: I was going to go with Boy Scout.
SAGAL: Scott Greenberg has got the jeans, the horn-rimmed glasses. He's got the three-day growth of beard. He's the kind of guy who would intern on a public radio show if he didn't want to defund public radio.
BABYLON: I don't even want to know what this kid looks like because I know he had - because you know hipsters wear hand-me-up clothes.
SAGAL: What does that mean?
BABYLON: Hand-me-up clothes? Clothes that a little boy hands up to a grown man to put on.
BABYLON: They were those little clothes.
AMY DICKINSON: Tight.
BABYLON: Tight, and they have handlebar moustaches, and I'm scared of those.
SAGAL: So this is what I mean. He's doing a great job advocating Republican policy positions because just after one minute of listening to that guy, 100 percent of Democrats wished they owned a gun.
BABYLON: What is that?
(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)
SAGAL: Coming up, our panelists are as mad as hell, and they're not going to take it anymore. It's Bluff the Listener. Call 1-888-WAIT-WAIT to play.
