Is it just locker room humor?

Republicans must not like the smell of reporters.

When GOP governor candidate Tom Emmer spoke at a news conference today, in an overcrowded and overheated room, the ex-college hockey player said: "They told me the days of locker rooms were behind us. This feels and smells like one."

Slightly more than a week earlier, fellow Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty emerged from his office to update reporters camped out in the Capitol hallway on budget talks. He also said that it smelled like a locker room.

In reporters’ defense, Capitol complex buildings have been quite warm and in Emmer’s case, he packed the room with far more Republicans than reporters.
