Looks like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nitwit) has been reading his Bulwer-Lytton. Overjoyed at the prospect of not having his delicate olfactory sensors ravaged by the miasma emanating from –I shudder to even think it– tourists, Senator Reid (D-SqueakyClean) just couldn’t resist telling the press how happy he was:
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."
You mean, like a bar of soap stamped with the Senate seal? Or maybe a can of Left Guard(tm), the approved deodorant of Hope and Change?
I think the
smelly oiks voters in Nevada need to remind Harry he works for them, not the other way around.
After they take a shower and sprinkle themselves with rose water, of course.

Can’t you just smell the difference?
