Potential Agriculture Secretary Likes To Pee In Cups, On Airplanes

News

A Georgia Congressman, Sanford Bishop, has beencited as being on the short list for whatever snoozer of a position Obama still needs to fill in his Cabinet... Ah, the position would be Secretary of Agriculture. You know, "farms." Well the liberal Internet would hate this guy, it appears, because he's a conservative Democrat who loves war and, more pertinently, usually sides with big agribusiness. In other words, the liberal Internet must destroy him immediately, with an embarrassing story, before he becomes President of Farms. And this is why the very liberal Firedoglake blog is now telling a comical story about how this Bishop guy wandered around restricted airplane areas to piss in a cup, once.


There is no linky to an original story on this Firedoglake post, but this probably happened:

But there's a slight whiff of scandal that could dampen the fervor for his appointment: In 2002, Bishop was questioned by airport security. On a flight from Washington to Atlanta, Bishop used a plastic cup as his personal WC when the lines for the bathroom looked too long. Bishop was detained and questioned after landing because the place he picked to pee--the section between the cockpit and first-class--is considered a secure area in the post 9/11 world. More importantly, like what did he do with his bodily fluids--hand them to an attendant to dump? Do it himself? And did he wash up afterward?

Did he drink the pee? Did he also go poo in a cup? What did he do with THAT? Why was he on an airplane? Does he know Osama? Is there one likable thing about this plane pisser? Does he piss on crops?

UPDATE: Never mind.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
