Wow. If I used the names that fit her, I would get banned. Wow.
It’s a power struggle and Liz won. That’s Washington for you. Her power is with Baghdad Jim. As long as he’s in power, she stays in power. However, once Baghdad Jim loses (we hope most sincerely it happens soon), Lizard Liddy will receive her comeuppance. Tom Foley’s wife, Heather (and she’s a dragon too) controlled the parking spots. She also controlled Foley’s office. With parking at a premium, you can your booties, Heather wielded her power like Lizard Liddy. These emails weren’t about an erroneous name. It was about Lizard Lizzie exerting her power.
I so wish I had Liz’s email. She sounds lonely.
You can email her here:
I thanked her for the laugh, and of course addressed her as Liz.
“From:XXX Sent: Wednesday, May 27, 2009 5:44 PM To: Becton, Elizabeth Subject: RE: JPMC Meeting Request
Hi Elizabeth, Again, I am sincerely sorry for offending you. I don’t recall who I overheard. It was in no way my intention to make you upset. Best, XXX “
Get that pole out your a** and stop being such a complete BI**H.
But I bet you secretly like that pole...
My Dear Ms Becton,
Please accept my apology for calling you "Liz".
Henceforth I promise I shall use your proper name
She may have gone overboard but it is irritating to be addressed by your first name let alone a diminutive by someone that you don't know.
Heard you were looking for a new consultant...
You should drop this “girl” a line. ;o)
Yeah, like no one has ever called her “Liz” in her life before.
She’s like her boss and her President—power drunk and thin skinned.
Sounds like Liz's boss is going to make McBee Strategic really grovel, if they want even more apologies.
These idiots in Washington work for us and get paid by us. If they want to act like snot-nosed elitists, let them get a job somewhere else.
I have also heard the "chosen one," President Hussein say it.
To me its pompous and obnoxious.
If someone says that to me, they will get an earful.
Thanks for email address, I addressed her as Liz, Beth, and snotty B#$%h.
What’s the problem? You seem on edge about your name. Can’t handle the woman monthly stuff? C’mon, you’re not a man. So not to worry. Have a good cry. You’ll feel better.
Please remember also: both you and the Congressman work at the tax payer’s discretion and he (not you) is elected to serve the American people.
Now be a good gal Friday and get me a cup of coffee.
May I suggest Betty as her new nickname?
I think she’ll really like that one.
Liz, I read about you and Rep. McDermott on the internet. It sounds like you’re both doing a great job, Liz. Please, Liz, keep up the good work, Liz. Thanks again, Liz.
How about "Beth, baby"?
They all seem to be morons concerned with only themselves.
Liz, Liz, Liz, Liz, Liz, Liz
Ya think I will get an appointment with her boss? :)
She’s under the influence of “self-importance”.
Let's INUNDATE the pompous self-important old meanie. It's not even her importance by right, she just works for a self-important old guy.
I wouldn't call her a bitch, my dogs are respectable females who always treat visitors politely.
Couldn’t agree more. I have some very important bitches living with me. LOL
"I just took care of Lizzie's Emails."
Send 'em to Liz and she can judge...
As Black Bart, the PO-8 of Crime, said when a reporter asked him upon his release from prison (for robbing a couple of Wells Fargo stagecoaches) if he was going to be writing any more poetry,
"Son, didn't you hear me say I've given up a life of crime?"
It is bitches like Liz who give the rest of us women a bad name.
Good one. I like that you called her Lizzie too. I can hardly type, I am laughing so much.
Maybe Liz should go work for Barbara Boxer:
Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to a General at a hearing yesterday: “Do me a favor,” she said. “Could say senator instead of Ma’am It’s just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I’d appreciate it, thank you.”
Like you JRochelle, I’m getting tired of women who are perpetually offended. It does make the rest of us women look bad. If no offense is intended, why make a big deal out of it?
This is a really good thread.
If I may... Women have a great name. B*tches are b*tches.
Confident Men and Women know the difference.
I read about your e-mail exchange in the news. Wow, you must have some real anger issues. Why is it that all liberal Democrats are so angry?
You know I have a daughter named Elizabeth. When she was growing up she did not like her name so she went by her middle name. Then while in High School she decided she did not like her middle name and wanted to be known as Elizabeth. But now she has graduated from college and we laugh about the things she did as a teenager.
I don't think I read in the article; but how old are you?
Well, I am sorry you don't like to be called Liz; but think of it this way you could be called by a name a whole lot worse...
Maybe you should think about some anger management counseling. Maybe its your boss. I know I have had some real embarrassing bosses in my life time.
Anyway, lighten up after all we are paying your salary; which from what I read, you appeared to be highly overpaid.
Take care Liz
BTW, people have also called me Don, Donny, and Donna but its okay because I am a grown up :)
Having worked in politics and as a Human Resources employee, my recommendation for dealing with this twit would be to send a letter reporting this snot assistant to the Congressman. I would inform him that you have all the emails sent by his twit assistant and that you plan to post them on blogs on the Internet so the world can read what rude employees he has representing him. I would also say that I’m sending the emails to Glenn Beck and Hannity at Fox News. Further, you will be keeping the emails to be used by his opponent when he runs for re-election. I would tell the Congressman that he was sent to Washington to serve the citizens of his district and they should be able to contact him without be subjected to a rude, arrogant, snot.
She would love that one. ROTFLOL
Boxer was a loser a long time ago.
Yep, she’s a real peach, isn’t she? LOL
“she has every right to ask to be treated respectfully by someone that she doesnt know. I am also very irritated by someone presuming intimacy when I have just met them.”
Give me a break. People in positions of power may have the luxury to “Demand respect”, but this is an administrative grunt job, her duties are to provide assistance and customer service to constituents. She might prefer Elizabeth and has every right to request that for the future. She has no right to berate, become angry, and then demand she quit apologizing. Geez.......
A polite - “Thanks for your email, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Elizabeth and I am in charge of ....... I will get back with you as to the times and dates of the meeting.
“And I don’t like nobody touching my stuff. So just keep your meat-hooks off. If I catch any of you guys in my stuff, I’ll kill you. Also, I don’t like nobody touching me. Now, any of you homos touch me, and I’ll kill you”
I have never understood people who throw a hissy fit over things like that.
This lady is more than just rude, she has real mental issues that need to be resolved. How she manages to get any real work done while obsessing on non issues like this, is beyond me. If I were Rep.McDermott I would, perhaps temporarily, remove her from her position or at the very least suggest that she take an obviously much needed break from the job. She’s really too thin skinned to be associated with politics in any way.
I myself have gone through life with an almost unpronounceable Gaelic first name. When I married, on top of my first name, I took on an often mispronounced French last name. Seldom, if ever, are these names said correctly the first time I am addressed by strangers. Do I care? No. I laugh and tell people not to worry about it. As long as I can figure out that they are addressing me and respond appropriately, its all good.
McDermott is a wackjob, too.
Oddither, whether a government employee or a housewife, it is rude to use a nickname that has never been offered.
Junior_G, it's called good manners and we've lost them.
Sorry to hear, Liz, that you’re offended by people calling you Liz. You shouldn’t be, Liz.
Dear Liz, Liz as a term of endearment has a long and proud history, Liz.
For example, Liz, lizards carry the prefix “Liz” in their name. But one should never call a lizard a “Liz” because it might confuse people into thinking you’re a lizard, Liz. We don’t want that, nor do we want to belittle lizards by being identified with you, Liz.
To avoid confusion amongst people thinking you’re a lizard, Liz, try adding a few “Zs” to your name, like this - Lizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Hiss out the last dozen or so “Zs” for good effect so everyone knows it’s you, and not a lizard.
This new pronounciation should garner the necessary attention you seek, Lizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Anyway, Lizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, I am so happy to be of service to you. If I can be of further assistance, don’t hesitate to call.
PS - you might find flies tasty. But get them with your tongue.
Say WA? Evergreen State ping

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this ping list.
Ping sionnsar if you see a Washington state related thread.
“Junior_G, it’s called good manners and we’ve lost them.”
On the face of it, I agree with you.
However, how many times must one apologize?
Perhaps there is more to the story.
However, she corrected him.
Elizabeth was rude to belabor the point.
“it’s called good manners and we’ve lost them.”
