I’m sure there are lots of jokes to be made about soldiers discharging their weapons, but I’ll refrain from doing so and just point out this article.
Concerned that the military is selling pornography in exchange stores in spite of a ban, one lawmaker has introduced a bill to clean up the matter.
“Our troops should not see their honor sullied so that the moguls behind magazines like Playboy and Penthouse can profit,” said Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., unveiling his House bill April 16.
His Military Honor and Decency Act would amend a provision of the 1997 Defense Authorization Act that banned sales of “sexually explicit material” on military bases.
I don’t think publicity like this will hurt Broun in the least little bit in a Republican Primary. In fact, I suspect Barry Fleming would not disagree on the campaign trail with this legislation.
Likewise, a lot of the feminist on the left who might be tempted to now pick off Paul Broun by jumping into the GOP primary in Athens to vote against the guy they initially supported might be neutralized.
