A Boob Goes to Washington?
As reported in today's WaPo, Robert "My Eyes" Hurt, a Texas rancher and delegate to the State GOP convention, wanted to add a condemnation of nudity in public places in the Nation's Capital to the State party platform. Hurt, the father of 14(!), thinks the breastesses exposed in nude art in museums, fountains and other places in Washington "is sending the wrong message to children that nudity is fine." The State platform committee refused to adopt Hurt's suggestion (as well as his proposal to make the presidential term limit apply to spouses -- take that, Hillary!). While Mr. Hurt's issue raises the possibility of all kinds of humorous word play, we will limit our observation to this: if he succeeds in banning boobs in Washington, does that mean he can't go there anymore?
