Harry Reid Says Congress Tourists Stink

From the DC Examiner:

Reid: We won’t smell the tourists anymore

By Jeff Dufour and Patrick Gavin

December 2, 2008

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.”

But it’s no longer going to be true, noted Reid, thanks to the air conditioned, indoor space.

And that’s not all. “We have many bathrooms here, as you can see,” Reid continued. “Souvenirs are available.”

$621 million well spent.

Where to begin?

Maybe by noting that the current Democrat controlled Congress is at an all time low approval rating.

And they wonder why.

    Finally we know how he really feels about us “peons”

    Sorry Reid, the influx of smelly hippies coming to see their messiah will probably make the odor a little worse.

    I seriously doubt the BO from the “tourist” overwhelmed the putrid stench of Reid and his cohorts.

    Reminds of the Mel Brooks movie “History of the World Part I” where King Louis is told the peasants are rebelling:

    Royal Advisor: “Sire, the peasants are revolting”
    King: “You said it, they stink on ice”

    Nice of Harry “Counte de Monay” Reid to notice how badly everyone else smells.

    O sure brag about the many bathrooms but when they get stopped up you will beg for Joe the plumber to come over and unclog them

  6. sheehanjihad

    Trust me, the tourists dont smell one tenth as bad as the current congress’ record of achievement.

  7. David

    Ahh, all the pieces fit now… The reason that this congress is doing such an atrocious job is that they can’t stand the smell of tourists and have therefor decided to run the whole government into the ground thereby discouraging DC tourism.
    In reality what will discourage DC tourism (or any major city for that matter) is Biden’s “test” that is going to come now that we have a do-nothing congress and a let’s-talk-about-it president.

    Funny, after my visit to our Capitol several weeks ago, I had the same view (smell?) of our Congress…

    My x-wife asked me not to mention this but to hell with her, here goes:
    “Harry….the skin suit the aliens slipped you into to is wrinkled and emits a B(arack) O(bama) stench.”

    I can’t decide between my first thoughts so here are both of them :
    1) sounds to me like Senator Reid’s cheese is slipping off the cracker
    and
    2) I guess now that The One ™ has won and the Dems are reveling in their power surge – Reid thinks that he can ignore his ‘handlers’ and say damn well anything he pleases.

    The arrogance and hubris are just beginning.

    I guess this is what The One ™ meant when he said ‘change’.

    wardmama4; …..”sounds to me like Senator Reid’s cheese is slipping off the cracker…..”

    Its plain to me, given some of the inane comments being made in the last few weeks, that they’ve all been standing too close to the vice-president-elect “Plugs” Biden. Soon the whole raunchy bunch will be pontificating in this manner.

  12. It’s going to be so soon before Sen. Reid is waiting all afternoon to have his bedpan emptied at “the home” that it’s not even funny. Lookit that wrinkled mug!

  13. JohnMG

    Just my attempt to put this all in perspective.

    We need to think of a new NFL team called the ‘Washington Congressmen’. Then, look at the picture from the thread topic “AP Says Bank Crisis Is All Bush’s Fault”. Its a photograph of the team’s “offensive line”.

    You have to admit, it doesn’t get much more “offensive” than that.

  14. Enthalpy

    Reid is such a nothing!

  15. U NO HOO

    “The One ™”

    Is the superscript “TM” just for fun or is “The One” actually a trademark?

  16. U NO HOO

    PS, I hope there is only one of “The One ™”

  17. U NO HOO

    Looks like a halo around Pinky’s head.

  18. VMAN

    All I can say is that we need to repeal the 17th amendment. These people were never meant to represent the people they were meant to represent the state government from which they came. Why would anyone want an elitist bastard like Reid representing them?

  19. DEZ

    “Looks like a halo around Pinky’s head.”

    Those are UFO’s. lol.

  20. DEZ

    We have been saying for over a year that B(arack) O(bama) stinks.

    I had that line all ready to go and saw LD had already used something all to similar.
    Sniffs, :-[

  21. CGardner

    Hmmm! I bet if a conservative said what Reid did, the liberal gang would come out and say he/she was using a “code” to say that minorities smell bad.

  22. Liberals Demise

    Great minds think (stink) alike, DEZ!!

  23. Chinnubie

    Maybe by noting that the current Democrat controlled Congress is at an all time low approval rating.

    And they could care less and apparently do not have to worry about re-election in their districts because lefty Congressmen can say & do whatever they want; I’m so glad the media hold their feet to the fire.

  24. 1sttofight

    For some reason i know Reid smells like Formaldihide.

  25. Byrd

    His doesn’t wash off.

    I have a slightly different take on this comment.

    In the book Stargate Nephilim and the Year 2012 the author goes to great lengths plowing through the etymology and contextual references to the specific words used in Old Testament texts when referring to nephilim … and what their sin was against God and mankind.

    Cutting to the chase, so I don’t bore my massive audience … nephilim are fallen angels. No question.

    But their sin against God and man was in genetic manipulation …. mixing the genetics of man with the genetics of animals. Even plants. To produce creatures for fallen-angel purposes that were an affront to the Creator. You know, messing around with perfection as a stick in His eye.

    Of specific interest to the nephilim (and this isn’t in the Bible, but is found in extant Jewish and Egyptian histories) was to enhance the sensory input of men and women with the sensory capacities of highly sensitive animals. Enhanced sight … enhanced hearing …

    … enhanced sense of smell.

    Stay with me …

    … 1 Chronicles 1:10 – And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be mighty upon the earth.

    Much reading, much reading, much reading …. and … the author presents a ton of historical data that thoroughly points towards Man can become nephilim …. almost identical to possession. The body of a human person, but the spirit of nephilim inhabits the body. The paleo-Hebrew roots to the phrase ‘began to be mighty’ is not praise for his strength and stature among his fellow man … it is a specific although veiled illumination that while born of woman, Nimrod – the character who built the tower of Babel causing the fundamental principle of babylon to be loosed into our experience – began to be nephilim.

    Nephilim are seriously uncool. Their goal is to punish God for their fall. And they do so by torturing mankind, by taking human form, inhabiting human form so that it is virtually impossible to distinguish between nephilim and authentic men and women. Except as they grow ‘mighty’. In other words, exhibit supernatural abilities.

    I completely believe that those of us who labeled Obama the Nimrod of our Time are absolutely correct.

    I understand Harry Reid’s smelly-human statement as revelation of what he really is. His enhanced sense of smell. The smell of God’s mankind is repellent to him.

    Nephilim.

    Liberals Demise: Your Ex still gives you advise? Hey, man, that’s one of the virtues of a divorce… no more advise from the ex. Alimony/child support is suppose to provide enough compensation so you don’t have to listen to advise from the ex-frau.

  29. 1sttofight

    Hey, Mrs. 1st gives me advice every 30 seconds whether I need it or not. She is actually right once in a blue moon. That is close enough for me.

    “current Democrat controlled Congress is at an all time low approval rating. And they wonder why”.
    They don’t wonder why, they’re to worried about the damn A/C working well enough. Well hell Harry, surley $621,000,000.00 is enough to keep the stink out of your office or better yet pull your thinker out of your stinker and it might not smell so bad or be near as dark.

  31. Liberals Demise

    I did say, “TO HELL WITH HER” as I remember.
    1sttofight…..if she is right once in a Blue Moon, she’s a keeper bro!!!

  32. 12 Gauge Rage

    There are some things a politician shouldn’t say. Was he mistaking the American tourists with those from Europe who have come to see the first European president? If not then he has a lot of gall for saying this. Especially when the democrats pride themselves as being the party of the people.

    P. S. I Lived in Europe for three years when I was in my twenties. Back then my european hosts found it peculiar when I told them that I showered every day.

  33. oki2

    Oh I wasn’t even thinking that way. The whole article didn’t make any sense to me. Every time I hear “BO” I think “Barack Obama” now. My contextual sensors need to be recalibrated I guess.
