Senatorial Ego Trip Now Underway

According to Drudge, Arlen Specter (RINO-PA) and Tom Harkin (D-IA) want buildings named after themselves!

The 2006 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee Conference Report (109-300) names two new buildings at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) after the Chairman, Senator Arlen Specter, and Ranking Democratic Member, Senator Tom Harkin.

The building with the new visitors center would be named after Senator Harkin.

The Headquarters and Emergency Operations Center Building (Building 21) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was to be renamed as the Arlen Specter Headquarters and Emergency Operations Center.

And guess who was on the committee?

Naming Porta Potties after these two jokers would be more appropriate. Unfortunately for them, there are Senate rules forbidding such a folly, and the report was given the royal flush.

Can it get any more ridiculous on the Hill?

Gee, I thought they didn't get things named after themselves until after they retired or passed-on. Oh, I forgot about Robert Byrd. Maybe they should name a KKK museum after him.

Georgia has a habit of naming highways after living politicians. I cringe when I have to drive on a section of freeway named after Cynthia McKinney. A couple of times, I think they have had to "un-name" them after a scandal.

Your porta-potties line was priceless.
