Alternate title: “Pot meets kettle”

We already know that Sheila Jackson Lee thinks her constituents are dumb (many of them voted for Sheila Jackson Lee, so that’s tough to argue against), but she also, according to this article, accuses her staffers of being sub-stupid:

A lot of politicians give nicknames to their aides. George W. Bush famously referred to his attorney general, Alberto Gonzalez, as “Fredo.” Mitch Daniels, then head of the Office of Management and Budget, was known as “The Blade.” Barack Obama reportedly called Larry Summers, his chief economic advisor, “Dr. Kevorkian.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas also hands out nicknames to the people who work for her. The Houston Democrat addressed one of her employees as “you stupid motherf***er.” And not just once, but “constantly,” recalls the staffer, “like, all the time.”

Another Jackson Lee aide recounts the time her parents came to Washington to visit: “They were really excited to come to the congressional office. They’re small town people, so for them it was a huge deal. They were actually sitting in the main lobby waiting area….[Jackson Lee] came out screaming at me over a scheduling change. Called me a ’stupid idiot. Don’t be a moron, you foolish girl’ and actually did this in front of my parents, of all things.”

Wow, that’s kind of like Michael Moore calling you a fat-ass. Somebody seems to be overcompensating for feelings of an inadequate intellect, Sheila.
