Just a little bipartisan repartee on Capitol Hill.

During a Senate Commerce subcommittee hearing on “telehealth” advancements Tuesday, the panel’s chairman Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) wondered aloud where he could go see cherry blossoms since he missed peak bloom here in Washington.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) perked up, thanking Wicker for the opportunity to boast about Newark’s cherry blossom collection — the country’s largest. Booker was so elated — “sir, you have just earned so much love from me” — he suggested he now had a “bromance” with Wicker. (Rand Paul will be so sad.)

Then, not to be left out, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) chimed in: “Mr. Chairman, we have some buds in Colorado, too.”

Gardner, so proud of his quick wit, posted the above video on his YouTube page.
