This came to SFR yesterday from the office of New Mexico's senior US Senator. Caption: "U.S. Senators Jeff Bingaman and Bob Corker (R-TN) sit down today for a New Mexico-style meal in the Senate cafeteria."

Other sites picked up this spoon-fed spoon-fed item sooner, but we're running the picture, which is arguably more revealing. Bingaman, tie askew and cowlicked, looks like he could be either confused or famished, whereas Corker merely looks intent on not staining his suit.

After the jump: the menu for Green Chile Month in the Senate cafeteria (available for only eight more days!)
