A friend forwarded me this piece from the Daily Kos that infuriates me to no end. Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) has introduced a bill “to protect against ‘lewd conversations and descriptions of the private behavior of public persons.’”
"It’s morally reprehensible," says Representative Hoekstra. "I walk down the street and I hear all these crude words – adultery, prostitute, incest, diapers, what-have-you – in conversations about our hard-working public servants. What kind of talk is this? Who is protecting us from these innuendos? We had to give Senator Ensign a standing ovation to cheer him up, for Christ’s sake! Lord knows what we’ll need to do for Governor Sanford.”
Yeah, hard-working, cheating, diaper wearing, public servants. Hey, Hoekstra! You want to know how you keep people from talking about public servants? Keep your nose clean and give them what they want!!! You’re standing there, asking us to feel sorry for Ensign and Sanford, two of the biggest philandering cheats going, and you want to pass legislation to stop everybody from talking about it? Here, I’ve got three words for you…GO FUCK YOURSELF!
Oh, this really gets my goat. The party that hates Government wants Government to legislate what we say. Rich. They love Government when it’s time to rule on morality, or Terry Schiavo, or prohibition, or war, but hate Government when it’s time to do what’s morally right, like FUCKING HEALTH INSURANCE OR A FUCKING RESPONSIBLE ENERGY POLICY!!!
Hokestra, you’re an asshole. You’re wasting time and taxpayer dollars on bullshit that if passed, opens up a whole can of worms as to what people can say, how they can say it. It’ll never pass and will, I suspect, be deemed unconstitutional. That said, you're a fucking shit heel for even bringing it up in the first place.
Word up to my boy Dan for the tip as well as mentioning Terry Schiavo and prohibition.
