"Flap" in the Legislature

Note- I had to edit this post to placate the sarcasm impaired.

State Democrats appear to be up in arms about something new. Surprisingly it has even earned the "for the children" designation.

Democratic Rep. Theresa Ulmer of Yuma supported the amendment and said it fit with lawmakers' other efforts to crack down on pornography and sexual predators.

The goal of the ammendment:

"I personally am tired of explaining to my 11-year-old son why they (women) are depicted on mudflaps , but not all women are 36Ds. He's very confused by that," Ulmer said. "But seriously, this is about family values -- what are we going to send out as a message to our children."

The language of the amendment would have banned obscene or hateful language from appearing on the mudflaps of motor vehicles. It would be interesting to see how "obscene or hateful" would have been determined and quantified.

I'd start here:
