Here is the first and the second installment of this story. And now more:

And the cost of renovating the space to which the House Parliamentarian will move is not even figured in yet.

Most fun quote:

“This is about respect for female members of the House,” said [Speaker-to-be-John Boehner’s spokesman Michael] Steel.

In the best Amy Poehler voice, “Really? Really? Well – okay – great. I look forward to all the ways in which Boehner is going to show respect for female members of the House. Let the respect begin (especially as Aretha is ailing, very very sadly).

Anyone want to write up a Top Ten Ways To Show Respect For Female Members of the House list?
