Capitol Follies
Posted by: Jon Henke on Tuesday, April 15, 2008

This is awesome on a number of levels.

There's the pictorial evidence that Senate Democrats - and people like Glenn Greenwald, who were mindlessly parroting their talking points - were misleading people about filibusters earlier this year.

There's the numeric evidence that Democrats are still trying to con people about filibusters.

It adds up to hilarity.

However, I have to take exception to the idea that there's something wrong with Harry Reid saying visitors to the Capitol building might smell badly after standing outside in the spring/summer heat. I never detected smelly tourists while working there, and I'm guessing I got a lot closer to more tourists than Harry Reid did. Although (insert joke about how the people who go to Democratic offices are smelly hippies, while the people who go to Republican offices smell like baseball and apple pie).

Still, Sen. Reid is right about the Capitol's unsuitability for tourists, including the lack of waiting and restroom facilities. I suggest we turn the large rooms on the 2nd floor at either end of the building into public bathrooms. They're already used for the same purpose by legislators.

"I guess that’s why that one person pinched a loaf in a hallway, huh..."

"What do you mean, ’No restrooms’?? Congress is in there crapping on us all the time..."

Oh lord....that’s up there with Barack Messiah not knowing how many states were in the Union.

Hilarity aside, they can s**k on it regards to complaining about filibusters, maybe I should just misremember about the deep regards they had for filibusters as a tool for not allowing the evil majority to steamroll the poor minority when THEY were doing it.

Suffer b*tches.

I was watching one of the cable channels Monday night — Discovery or History Channel — and they had a show about sewers beneath Washington. (I think the show was called "Cities of the Underworld".) It turns out that the main sewer runs directly beneath the Capitol building.

It was so apropos.
