Lobbying for unsavory causes is a time honored tradition in Washington DC, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that even pernicious little bed critters can get into the act:
The three-legged stool of conservatism is strong and united at CPAC! Yes, as intelligent and alive as a small piece of furniture. However, the stool may not last long, as the hotel they chose, the Marriott Wardham Park, seems to currently be infested with bedbugs.
The question that we should really be asking ourselves is this: Why did they choose to lobby CPAC when Lanny Davis was available to represent them?
At any rate, we probably shouldn’t come down too hard on CPAC and the Marriott Wardham Park hotel since it appears that the Bedbugs have been making a significant lobbying push into DC over the last few months:
Fortunately, I’m not planning to visit DC anytime in the near future, (and if I were I’d sleep underneath some dumpster since it would probably be safer.).
The next question that begs itself is: Who is behind these bedbugs? These are some pretty nice hotels and a several month stay does not come cheap. My money is on the Sleep Number Mattress folks, since they would have the most to gain.
