Potty crisis could gum up Inauguration

Something stinks on Capitol Hill and it has nothing to do with usual suspect, Congress.

It is more basic: There are going to be far fewer porta-potties at President Obama’s second Inauguration than his first. And while crowd estimates for Monday’s event are less than half the 1.8 million who flooded the Mall in 2009, the bathroom count has been cut by about two-thirds, meaning potentially long lines at the portable restrooms.

“It could be a pissy Inauguration,” said John Banzhaf, the George Washington University professor whose urgings in 2009 led to more porta-potties for the president’s first Inauguration.

Dubbed the “Father of Potty Parity” for his previous potty patrol efforts, he is calling for more facilities for the Inauguration.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee told Secrets that there will be a total of 1,500 porta-potties on the Mall, many by the Capitol where the crowds will be concentrated. There were over 5,000 in 2009, and some news accounts reported 7,000 porta-potties.

    Like more porta-potties would help. As soon as this President starts his speech, the crowds will be hip deep in shit.

    Potty Papa need not get so pissy. This inauguration will probably have the smallest crowd in 50 years, if all of the near-empty Obama campaign venues are any indication. He couldn’t get out his supporters in their hometowns, and don’t forget the downsized Dem convention debacle. Sure, he won reelection but by millions fewer votes than 2008.

    I wonder if Potty Papa remembers the purple tunnel of doom in 2008, where thousands of Obamanauts were herded into a freeway tunnel under the Mall, forced to stay there for hours in freezing temperatures, and they completely missed the inaugural spectacle. Oh yeah…there were no porta potties in the tunnel. Needless to say, it got pretty pissy in there, John.

    After 2009 they know that only 20% of the crowd requires a toilet. The rest just shit in their pants knowing the guberment will buy them new diapers. The other 20% get their kickbacks in tax credits and no bid guberment contracts. Change you can believe in.

    I don’t know about the total number of potra-potties for the crowd, but there damn sure had better be one on the dais for all the bullshit that will be spewing out of Obumphuk’s mouth.
