Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, insulted Blue Dog Rep. Heath Schuler's record as an NFL quarterback while responding to Shuler's concerns about the lack of bipartisanship on the Hill.

"Let me get this straight - this is coming from a guy who threw more than twice as many interceptions than touchdowns?," Manley told The Politico's Glenn Thrush. Manley proceeded to talk about why Reid believed the stimulus bill was good.

Schuler was one of the 11 Democrats who voted against the House version of the stimulus billl.
