EXCLUSIVE: You can't make this stuff up, kids. Following their successful partnership with Levi Johnston, Playgirl magazine informs me they've set their sights on another young man with a Republican media star in his life: Lucas Bachmann, son of possible presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann.

"I'm reaching out to Lucas because when I researched him I was struck by how absolutely adorable he is," Playgirl spokesman Daniel Nardicio tells me. "Plus, I think his political ties make him even sexier. We've made initial contact, so let's see how it goes from there."

But the skin mag will have to move on to another politician's son (Mitt Romney has five to choose from!) because Bachmann, 28, has officially quashed the idea.

Reached for comment (over Facebook), Lucas confirmed to PopEater that Playgirl reached out and that he wasn't the least bit interested. For starters, the politician's son is currently a resident in psychiatry at the University of Connecticut.
