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.
