Amy Klobuchar appears to be the go-to freshman senator when The Washington Post wants a good quote.

The Post already named the Minnesotan the funniest freshman. Now one of its reporters asked about her holiday gift-giving.

The Post called Klobuchar the most practical gift-giver in Congress, "whose main motivation was finding peace with her directionally challenged hubby, John. She's outfitting his car with a GPS because they've been getting lost - and into arguments - when they go to parties around Washington.

'He never likes to ask for directions, so I thought if it was a soothing woman's voice, that would be good,' Klobuchar told us.

(She also got him an ice-cream maker. ... Shhhh, it's a secret!)"
