According to an aide to Rep. Jim McDermott, the Washington Democrat enjoyed his first Sir Mix-A-Lot concert earlier this month. But confidence is low that the jazz and folk rock fan will delve much deeper into the rap world.

McDermott first became aware of the Seattle-born rhyme spitter when faux conservative newsman Stephen Colbert attempted to pin him down about his preference of posteriors during a recent “Better Know a District" segment.
