The Capitol Visitors Center opened in Washington this week to the relief of at least one Senator. The fact that the Center was delayed 3 years and $550 million over budget is no matter to Senator Harry Reid. The bloated $621 million price tag is a small price to pay so the sweaty masses (ie. summer tourists, who, by the way, also pay his salary) do not offend his delicate olfactory sense. Check out his unbelievably offensive comments here.
Reid further puts his foot in it when he says, “We have many bathrooms here, as you can see. Souvenirs are available.” Oh, lovely Senator Reid! Are there also shower facilities so your constituents may bathe before daring to step foot into your office?
