Heard: Really, Really Egregious Misstatement of Facts

Many a Hill staffer has walked through the Capitol Visitor's Center (CVC) and witnessed a frightened intern embarking on their first Capitol tour.  We've all been there, we get it.  The chandelier is not from the Titanic, or a whore house, etc.  However, what I overheard was particularly egregious.  To a group of at least 15 visitors I hear said intern boldly state, "I'm pretty sure like, they put Helen Keller in the CVC because, they felt bad for her because she was super retarded." 

And there you have it folks.
