Whatcha Looking at, Officer?

The Democrat who believes a $50 fine is in order for people whose pants reveal their underwear in "a lewd or indecent manner" was laughed out of the Virginia Senate yesterday.

Virginia lawmakers dropped their droopy-pants bill Thursday after the whole thing became just too embarrassing.

Republican Sen. Thomas K. Norment said news reports implied that lawmakers were preoccupied with droopy pants.

"I find that an indignation, which dampens my humor," Norment said.

Republican Sen. Kenneth Stolle, the committee chairman, called the bill "a distraction."
I can imagine all the cops in Virginia who collectively sighed with disappointment; hoping that they would have an excuse to look at the backsides of women in order to keep the peace and promote justice.
