Heard: One R, One D, We're a Happy Family

This afternoon, I was sitting in the Dirksen cafeteria reading over my lunch hour when a boy and young boy and girl sat down at the table next to mine. They had been there for about a half hour when I overheard the girl ask the boy a question: 

"So, each state has two Senators, and one is always a Democrat and the other is always a Republican, right?" 

I failed to hear the boy's response because I had to actively stop myself from laughing out loud or banging my head on the table. Sure enough, when they got up to leave about ten minutes later, I noticed gray intern badges dangling from their suit jackets.
