Friday Stupid: That Bathroom For Female House Members Could Cost Some Serious Moola!

Alternate title: When Liberals Put Partisan Politics Over Support For Women’s Equality. Alternate alternate title: I Don’t Remember This Concern Over Democrat Spending.

Real title: don’t forget to turn the coffee pot on, dummy. Sorry, that was a note to self: Women’s bathroom in House: $200K

Speaker-in-waiting John Boehner’s idea to build a women’s bathroom could be a costly proposition.

The incoming Republican House leader proposed plans to build female members a new restroom off the House floor, but the project could cost the taxpayers at least $200,000, according to a congressional aide who has seen the cost estimates.

Legislative Branch Appropriations Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz investigated the possibility of building a women’s bathroom off the House floor back in 2007, but the idea was nixed because of the prohibitive cost, according to a senior congressional aide familiar with the project.

Yes, seriously, Erika Lovely of the Politico actually went there in attempting to paint $200K as a huge, monstrous, ginormous expense.

She further goes on to try and paint this as some sort of Republican hypocrisy on spending. It is rather un-subtle dig, yet, imagine this idea came from Nancy Pelosi: Ms. Lovely would be waving those pom poms and jumping in the air, screaming her little liberal lungs out, proclaiming the bathroom was a home run for women’s rights, a strike against the old boys network. I guess the bathroom is not as cool as “$300,000 for a GPS-equipped helicopter to hunt for radioactive rabbit droppings at the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington state” and other stupid stimulus spending in Ms. Lovely’s partisan hack mind.

  2. I’d rather Debbie peed in a $200K bathroom than stayed at her desk and pissed on the American people…

    What are the ladies doing now? Peeing into a bottle?

  4. Maybe instead of building the WC there, Richard, they could tear out all the bathrooms in the Capitol building, that way they would spend more time in their offices in the various buildings around the Capitol building not screwing us. Meant seriously.

    They have a much farther walk to an old bathroom, Mojo.

    I’ve often wondered what congress critters do during a really long filibuster, but, I don’t like to dwell on it.

    Why not just turn the current male bathrooms in to Dual-Use?!?

    Saves lots of money.

    Here’s another idea. Turn off the water and electricity and force them to use hand-pumps for their water and individual solar panels for their electricity needs.

    Time to step up people. If you are going to force that lifestyle on everyone else, step up to the plate and show us how to do it!!!

    Because the filibuster is now a parlimentary procedure vote, and not an actual filibuster made famous to most Americans by Jimmy Stewart in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” they don’t even have to stay in the building, much less the chamber. No one has to speak which may be a good thing considering the cost of the Congressional Record, but at the same time the filibuster has lost much of its allure and “battle of wills.”

    “Holding the floor” is now done by a vote, and not actually a person speaking.

    It sucks, to be honest with you.
