Harry Reidâ€™s Latest Message To His Constituents
By: Michael John McCrae
A very interesting, if short report posted to dcexaminer.com, entitled: â€œReid: We won’t smell the tourists anymoreâ€ by Jeff Dufour and Patrick Gavin simply states:
â€œThe Capitol Visitors Centerâ€¦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.â€
“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.”
â€œBut it’s no longer going to be true, noted Reid, thanks to the air conditioned, indoor space.â€
â€œAnd that’s not all. “We have many bathrooms here, as you can see,” Reid continued. “Souvenirs are available.â€
Ladies and Gentlemen these are our Democrat Representatives of the United Statesâ€™ Congress and they are no longer upset with us, their constituents, for bringing our unhygienic torsos into their blessedly well-kept presence.
Harry Reid and his staff are joyous that we no longer have to bring our body odors, our halitosis or our soiled and smelly Nikes into the hallowed halls of the Capitol.
At the mean cost of $621 million and the tons of overtime paid delinquent and over budgeted workers, the voters of America can now enter a facility far removed from the sensitive noses of Harry Reid and his colleagues and view the rewritten history of the United States Capitol with the view that God had nothing to do with the establishment of a government â€œby the people, for the peopleâ€.
This new Visitorâ€™s Center is simply another means our new socialist government will use to segregate the smelly masses from the Congressional elite. It has been completed just in time for the inauguration of the â€œBlessed Oneâ€. The Capitol halls will now have their exclusivity from the odorous hordes of tourists so eschewed by the Democrat Majority Leader.
Why does Harry Reid even have a â€œstaffâ€ if heâ€™s going to say something â€œanywayâ€ heâ€™s been asked not to say? The answer is the arrogance of Harry Reid. After all, heâ€™s the guy who has already told us that all is â€œlostâ€ in Iraq. He is also the guy who said in 2005: â€œ”while I favor improving oversight by our federal housing regulators to ensure safety and soundness, we cannot pass legislation that could limit Americans from owning homes and potentially harm our economy in the process.” (“Dems Rip New Fannie Mae Regulatory Measure,” United Press International, 7/28/05) as copied from www.whitehouse.gov.
Personally I believe the stink Harry Reid smells is the stink from his own BS. It is probably wise to keep Americans separate from liberals, communists and socialists. If, while visiting Washington, D.C. one never bumps into a liberal politician that might be considered a fringe benefit.
Harry Reid has not endeared anyone to Nevada or the Democrat Party with these comments. Harry Reidâ€™s â€œsilver liningâ€ is showing a lot of tarnish.
