Is Congressman Tim Bishop On Drugs?


So, here’s this week’s cartoon. Where is Joe Wilson (you lie!) when we need him? The fatuous Tim Bishop could use a Joe Wilson treatment right about now. Anyway, one good thing – maybe the only good thing – is that he has a charming and hilarious Deputy Cheif of Staff named Jon Schneider. I hope HE runs for Congress in November. I certainly won’t be voting for Bishop. But I’d vote for Jon in a heartbeat. He responded to my post about Tim Bishop’s website going positively paleolithic by not having any option for a woman to sign on as Ms, offering her only Mrs & Miss – hello 1962. That post  with a screenshot is here:

Jon Schneider’s very funny response:

Dear Ms. Fredericks,

Miss-take fixed. Just wanted to shoot you a line to let you know that we appreciate you flagging the “Miss-take” on our website comment form… and while I don’t know how this “Mrs-tery” occurred it has been fixed and “Ms” is now an available option when one leaves a comment.  I appreciate you indulging my need for morning puns and again, apologize for any “Ms-ery” this may have caused.  OK, that was the last one.


Just the text from the cartoon: (hello search engines!)

Tim Bishop’s Congressional insurance offers 10 plans his family can choose from. He’s fully vested for lifetime benefits after five years.And we, the taxpayers, pick up his tab.
Bishop said he voted for thisHealth Care Bill because it will give Americans the same kind of options he enjoys as a Member of Congress.
Does he think we’re stupid enough to believe that? Is Tim Bishop on drugs?
If he is, I’m sure they’re fully covered by his fabulous Congressional plan.
