Kay Bailey’s “purse boys”

Or her J. Crew aides as former Bush speechwriter Matt Latimer relates in his new book Speechless:

"Now I want you to take my purse back to the office," she said.
"Yes, senator," the purse boy responded.
"Take the nail polish out and put it in the refrigerator."
"Yes, senator."
"Take the rest of the makeup out and put that in the refrigerator too."
"Yes, senator."
"Then put the purse by my desk." She said this as though it were her routine speech.

"I felt a little like entering your parents’ bedroom and finding your mother putting on deodorant. It was something you knew happened, but you didn’t really want to think about."

Heh. How would KBH get along as a mere governor of Texas? I imagine Michele Obama, certainly Hilarity Clinton, are worse. But you never know.
