According to The Hill, it’s Michelle Persaud, Democratic staff council for the House Judiciary Committee.
You can read the write-up about her at The Hill where she admits that what people might not know about her is that, “I can be really mean.”
Since we work on such a tight deadline we didn’t have a chance to actually interview the new queen of the Hill, but her MySpace account was gracious enough to answer a few of our questions***.
Wizbang: Tell us about yourself.
Michelle: I am awesome.
What was your reaction when you saw The Hill on the newsstand?
Michelle: who’s this hottie? oh, it’s me.
Wizbang: What position do you hold on the Hill?
Michelle: wouldn’t you like to know???
Wizbang: Well, yeah, that’s why I asked the question. What’s your job title?
Wizbang: Has there been any jealousy directed toward you over this? If so what do you say to people who wonder what all the fuss is about?
Michelle:whatever. you’re just jealous cuz i’m prettier than you
Wizbang: Are you familiar with former DeWine intern Jessica Cutler?
Michelle:my lil sis is such a brat!
Wizbang: I’ll take that as a yes.
Michelle:Whatever… i’m still cuter
Wizbang: Surely you don’t have any ambitions to similarly capitalize on your new found fame, right?
Michelle:it’s ok, as long as it’s halloween
Wizbang: Finally, what message to you have for other other female Hill staffers?
Michelle:i’m prettier than you. I am awesome.

Update: Well now we’ve gone and done it… Michelle (yes it’s really her) writes, “My colleagues and friends have told me not to take this stuff that you guys are saying personally, but I can’t help it. It hurts.“
When you have to explain the humor in a “fluff” piece perhaps it’s not as funny as you originally thought… Just to be clear all of the quotes above from Michelle are just random bits of the text posted at MySpace by Michelle – in her profile and elsewhere. None of that was particularly interesting last week. With the appearance of The Hill article and her selection at the top of the list, the quotes about being pretty [In actuality they were mostly jokingly directed to her sister] were suddenly funny. Now rather than pointing to her MySpace profile and saying, “OMF WTF?” we tried to use her MySpace persona in a humorous way. I’ve also written a more detailed personal note to Michelle…
For those complaining about the picture included; here’s the one in The Hill…
And finally for all of you trashing Michelle in the comment section; now she’s actually shown up you might – perhaps – be a little more civilized.
Update 2: Never ones to leave well enough alone, and since the whole MySpace thing was supposed to be funny, we went looking for the funny…
Sam and Indira: welcome to wizbang. You have definitely improved your lot by graduating from myspace.com.
Here you will find adult opinion, informed by real world experiences as opposed to what you have been used to.
As I recall, Indira, you are a little hefty, yourself, so perhaps you are not the authority for your position re extra lbs.
Samantha, another cute sister–fightin’ for what’s right! Ok, so here’s hoping you were the one in the family who got more than just looks.
Intelligence, wit, sophistication. These things are important, too. Unfortunately, gratifying yourselves on myspace.com isn’t going to get you those things.
See you at the new thread on this very important subject!
Anyone who posted anything bad about Michelle is a loser. You know it too.
Caution: Posters in forum are stupider than they appear
whoa – I just discovered the 50 most list and, of course, this blog. Things got a little nasty. Michelle, you’re beautiful. You’re also pretty damn accomplished, too. I wish I knew you, to be honest. Since that’s unlikely, I hope you don’t think these people are all that bad, they’re not (except a couple douchebags). They’re otherwise just normal americans who don’t want you to forget where you came from and that you’re just one of us. And from your letter, it seems that you’re really well grounded. stay great, stay beautiful.
Don’t believe Michelle’s sorry note … she was notorious for being a skank, stuck-up b*itch back at GW Law School even … don’t know how she ever got in.
