Ask Poopreport: No Bathroom Break for Eleven Hours?

A rather impressed young man asked a question about our nation's political system:

I read that Texas Senator Wendy Davis filibustered for 11 hours [last] week in an attempt to stop the Texas Senate from voting on a bill. An article I read says she wasn't allowed to stop talking, lean on anything for support, or take a bathroom break. Does this mean that she really did not go to the bathroom for 11 hours? What did she do, wear diapers?

Editor's note: Now I'm wondering about this as well. Can anyone elucidate on filibustering rules without descending into a right or left-winged political rant? Did Wendy buy some Comfies beforehand?

Several years ago I had prostate surgery followed two days later by surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. I elected to have them close together and get all the miserableness over with at the same time. I still had a catheter in my penis when I went for the carpal tunnel repair, a urine collection bag was strapped to my leg and the catheter ran directly into that.

Anyone who has a friend who is either a nurse or a doctor could probably persuade them to insert a catheter, which is a relatively painless procedure that I perform on myself several times a day, and route it into a collection bag. I personally think this would be preferable to donning a diaper.

Urinary catheters are prescribed devices but a good politician could probably get around this.

If I had two faces do you think I'd be wearing this one?

The longest filibuster in US history was 24 HOURS and 18 minutes. No breaks. Not only are you talking about pee breaks, but the need for #2 also enters into the equation.

I would have tied a knot in it.

On the other hand, if I had to take a serious dump, well, I guess the Women of the Commonwealth would just have to figure out how to live without access to safe, affordable abortions.

A freshly laid log fermenting in your trousers might have cleared a few out of that august assemblage and made your filibuster easier.

You're right there, Chief. Shitting in your pants can't be any worse than any of the other crap that's being spouted.
