And on your right

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

There’s one group of tour guides in Wash­ing­ton that al­ways looks for­ward to the next po­lit­i­cal scan­dal — the more out­ra­geous and dis­gust­ing the bet­ter.

We’re re­fer­ring to Scan­dal Tours, an Inside the Belt­way main­stay for 17 years. Pub­li­cist Deb Fis­cella of Cen­ter Stage Mar­ket­ing calls it the “tour that high­lights the lowlifes.”

She for­wards word to Inside the Belt­way that the tour has been up­dated to in­clude a new Mark Fo­ley at­trac­tion on Capi­tol Hill, ob­vi­ously honor­ing the for­mer Florida Repub­li­can con­gress­men who couldn’t keep his fin­gers off his key­board.

Other new at­trac­tions in­clude K Street, site of re­cent shady lob­by­ing ac­tiv­ity; a Don­ald H. Rums­feld de­par­ture stop; and up­dates on the gen­eral lame-duck may­hem at the White House.

And if you think from those new at­trac­tions that the tour guides (all ac­tors from Gross Na­tional Prod­uct) are pick­ing on the Repub­li­cans, think again. The guides are proud to be “equal-op­por­tu­nity of­fend­ers,” con­fi­dent “new ma­jor­ity rules scan­dals will be added as Wash­ing­ton moves into an era of Demo­cratic con­trol in Congress.”
