Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., doesn't necessarily define herself as a "hipster," despite an entire Web site dedicated to proving she is.

"I consider myself a member of Congress and people will call me what they want to call me," she told Yeas & Nays.

The Web site, "Rosa DeLauro is a F---ing Hipster," shows photos of DeLauro with made-up quotes like, "I can't believe we're doing this ironic birthday dinner at Olive Garden."

DeLauro is aware of her nickname and the Web site.

"I have heard about it," DeLauro said. "I've seen it, you know, briefly, so yes, I am aware."

Don't expect to catch DeLauro frequenting the site, though. She says her "staff keeps [her] informed."
