I’m pretty swamped, but it will only take a few minutes to put this up. In reporting on the brand new Capitol Visitors Center, The Examiner chose to include a few choice words from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. It’s such a short–but politically pungent–piece that I can include it in full here:
The Capitol Visitors Center, which opened this morning, may have tripled its original budget and fallen years behind schedule, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid found a silver lining for members of Congress: tourists won’t offend them with their B.O. anymore.
“My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway,” said Reid in his remarks. “In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”
But it’s no longer going to be true, noted Reid, thanks to the air conditioned, indoor space.
And that’s not all. “We have many bathrooms here, as you can see,” Reid continued. “Souvenirs are available.”
$621 million well spent.
Unbelievable, isn’t it? Just uncouth. He should have listened to his staffers when they told him to keep his smarmy trap shut. Nothing good ever comes, after all, from Harry Reid deciding to spew his excrement and express his opinion. If anything, Harry, in this case the noxious fumes are coming from inside the building, the retch-worthy stench of a do-nothing Congress led by people who constantly blame America first, willingly bet on Her failure, and instinctively place party before country.
