Politician moves to make vulgar Photoshopping illegal

Sometimes people don’t appreciate flattery.

They are so engrossed in their own grossly skewed view of the world that their sense of humor flies into the night like a married lover late home for dinner.

How else can one explain the quite bizarre intentions of Georgia state Rep. Earnest Smith?

He clearly sees a vast importance in being Earnest.

He clearly believes that his constituents are so drawn to his Earnestness that anything that deviates it from absolute Earnestness deserves the full metal force of the law.

Which is why he wants to make lewd, coarse, filthy Photoshopping illegal and punishable with a fine of $1,000.

You see, some devious, twisted human being placed His Earnestness’s head on the body of a porn star. He did this for public consumption on the blog Georgia Politics Unfiltered. The porn star has a very nice body. He is a porn star, after all. And he is not Ron Jeremy.

The human being behind this affrontery has come forward. His name is Andre Walker. It is unknown if he was moved by the boast on His Earnestness’s own Web site that says he is both “accessible” and “audacious.”

However, Walker told Fox News: “The first Amendment to the Constitution of the United States protects all forms of speech, not just spoken word.”

    You’re complaining about a $1000 fine? Which is levied only when someone uses a particularly demeaning method to insult someone? I think maybe, you have the right to express your contempt of whatever, but there’s no reason to get all creepy sexist perv while you’re doing it.

    It’s like, a flasher who forces everyone around him to be part of his porno fantasy. And then he insists that he’s entitled to do that, but other people are magically not entitled to be free from verbal/visual assault. It’s a hypocritical entitlement you’re trying to defend.

  3. Listerine says:

    Oh. That should be “free from verbal/visual SEXUAL assault”. :-)
