The $3k Question

Congress got around to grilling the GSA folks today in DC.  The thing is....this week....down in Nashville at the Gaylord Opryland resort hotel....there's a GSA conference.

Naturally, this conference involves money and is drumming up a huge amount of Congressional interest.  At some point, someone bought up the fact that there is a Presidential Suite at the Opryland resort hotel, and it's being rented...at $3k per night.

This got Congress all peppered up and they wanted the GSA boss to say who it was in the Presidential Suite at the Opryland hotel.  Well....the gal from GSA just didn't know.  You could tell that she'd like to say no one from GSA was at the $3k room.....but she couldn't say that.

So you can imagine this scene tonight at the Gaylord resort in Nashville.  Some GSA dude is standing at the front desk and asking Ms Stephanie or Mr Gus.....who is in the $3k Presidential Suite.....and hotel management just doesn't want to say.  This GSA dude would then walk up to the room and knock on the door.

Then you have two scenarios to occur.

The GSA guy renting the room....just won't answer, and hopes the government rep just goes away.

Or, some fancy-pants governor from Alabama or Arkansas opens the door with his hot lusty girlfriend, and suddenly gets pictures taken of himself at the swanky Presidential Suite and wondering who the heck is bothering him while he's on a secretive liaison.

I'm guessing the Gaylord resort management guys are pretty upset by the negative press, and wondering how they got into all this trouble.

Meanwhile, back in Bama....some guys are sitting around and wondering what exactly you get with the $3k Presidential Suite, and if that hot lusty premium "Channel X" cable station is offered free in this room, and if you get a free complimentary six pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Note: there are 6k rooms at the Gaylord hotel in Nashville....so you'd wonder how Congress knows about the status of the Presidential suite on one particular evening.  We may need another congressional hearing....to find out the methods of hotel analysis being done by Congressmen.
