I don't know
how else to say this. But this apparently-deserved hit piece
on Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison
is really, really funny.
Apparently Hutchison is, as they say, not an easy boss. And much of the piece is the standard order 'Senator makes staff pick up spouse's dry-cleaning' sort of stuff.
But some of it goes beyond even that normal sort of small-time abuse of official privileges.
Like this choice snippet ...
Hutchison requires a staffer to show up at her doorstep each morning with bagels and coffee and wait without knocking until the door is opened. The senator usually is driven the two blocks to her congressional office when she emerges.
I mean, what is this? Ritual humiliation? Does she make them call her Mistress Kay?
