Texas lawmakers vote to ban suggestive cheerleading
Now we know what unites both parties:

"Girls can get out and do all of these overly sexually performances and we applaud them and that's not right," said Democratic Representative Al Edwards, who filed the legislation.

Mr. Edwards argued bawdy performances are a distraction for students resulting in pregnancies, dropouts and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

I particularly liked this part:
The bill would give the state education commissioner authority to request that school districts review high school performances.

And not just once, I'll wager. And preferably on the other side of a one-way mirror.

So, again, for those keeping score: for Texan womanhood, bumping and grinding, bad; telling horse cock jokes on national television, just peachy.

Molly Ivins once wrote of a regulation on the books of the Dallas Police force that prohibited hiring male recruits who had had sex with another male since the age of 16, or with an animal since the age of 18. IIRC, Molly called this "The Texas Farmboy Exemption".

I'm beginning to think it's not just about the farmboys.
