Let them buy drek souvenirs

I always knew the Capitol Visitor Center was a ploy to keep the unwashed masses out of the Congressional office buildings, but I never expected anybody to acknowledge that so vividly:

Harry Reid:
"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."
You guys aren't even around for most of the summer, what are you griping about? Get over yourselves. Might I suggest that no distance can separate the American people from the stench emanating from Congress.

And another tip, genius - there's a reason your staff told you not to say that.

Not even lovemissbailey commenting? Maybe everyone is suffering from post-election malaise?

There might be something to that. I was just informed that pawatercooler had a significant drop-off after the election.

But frankly, there hasn't been a lot of good news content to work with. I was considering a satirical "on the seventh day he rested/didn't have a press conference" thing, but that's not really my style.

Since when has Congress been in session for most of the summer? They leave, return for another short session, then it's time for the Thanksgiving and Xmas holidays! If there's any stink, it's Congress and their liberal, do-nothing illuminatis sitting on their behinds sniffing their cracks! It's those so-called "stinky" visitors who are paying their salaries--and for what? Waiting for the sky to fall in on them before they'll move on issues? The biggest "stinks" are Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Dodd and Frank!!
