“Before the bill bill got to the House floor many members considered it a joke. Edwards even shared in some of the laughs just hours before the House passed the bill 65-56.

‘Some of this is a distraction and we see that as a result more of our young girls being pregnant in middle and high schools, dropping out of school, having babies, and contracting AIDS and herpes,” Edwards said.”

But no, giving congressmen an excuse to study gyrating female forms is the answer. Of course.
