There’s just no brain-mouth filter on these people:
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.”
You should probably listen to your staff, dolt. Then again, it seems you [D]s can say pretty much whatever you want and your constituency is just hunky dory with it.
Personally, when I get insulted by someone who is socially beneath me – as would be every member of Congress, yes – I tend to bitterly cling even harder to my guns and religion (though probably not the one they’d expect) and sit outside with my ponytail flipped over my shoulder to ensure the uniform redness of my neck.
I would say you Dems had better learn some judicious self-censoring but your supporters have already indicated they’re just fine being the bottom to your top, are happy to receive any and all abuse it pleases you to hand out. Just remind them to wear long sleeves when they leave the house, and that you only do it because you love them.
