The WAAAAAY over priced and long delayed Capitol Visitors Center is finally open to the public. For a mere $621 million, triple the original budget, we are now proud owners of a hole in the ground with a glass ceiling. Yay!
This monstrosity does have one benefit, according to Senate Majority douchebag, er, Leader Harry Reid, it will de-stink tourists before they dare enter his workplace.
“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.”
Listen to your staff, jackass. Those smelly tourists are the people you are supposed to represent, and they own the building.
