MIKE CHECK Gillis, Doyle (inset)
Sure, there's a war going on. But let's not forget we have some outstanding issues with Iran and Afghanistan— and, if you ask congressman Mike Doyle (D-PA), mix tapes.
In a speech more suited for High Fidelity than the House of Representatives, Doyle recently spoke out about mashups on a hearing regarding the future of radio, citing both Atlanta's DJ Drama and hipster remix favorite Greg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, two artists typically unfamiliar to the general public, let alone a disconnected Pennsylvania state rep.
Even Girl Talk's publicity team seems stymied by the reference. As their press release states, "Who knew politicians could be so hip?"
