State Rep. Scott Holcomb filed a bill Friday requiring all state lawmakers to be drug tested. The bill is in response to one filed last month by Republicans that would mandate drug-test for parents who apply for federal financial assistance.

Now I’d like him to file a bill that would allow me to have “Scott Holcomb is made of awesome” on my license plate.

    apparently the short bus has pulled up to this curb of this blog..so yes Peaches looks like it is necessary to spell the hypocrisy out to some folks.

  2. Peaches says:

    Is it really necessary to spell out what is happening here? Really?

  3. Dave Bearse says:

    It’s waste of time legislation that isn’t going anywhere. It’s not going to improve his status with the GOP majority (not that that’s critcially important, but there could come a time when any influence he has would be useful) or help Democrats in general.

    Someone needs to give this man an award.

    It’s unconstitutional.

    • EGaluszka says:

      That’s the point.

      • Jakey says:

        The point is to sponsor a bill that the courts have already ruled is unconstitutional?

          Do you really not understand what he’s doing?

            You need to register an O RLY owl photo and start posting regularly. This could be comedy gold.

            I understand it is a political move; however, I think it would be important note that case in the article. Tell the whole story, inform the readers… etc etc…

            I mean, think about it – you could add an entire fourth sentence to this “post.”

              A political move in what sense? You do realize that Rep. Holcomb 1) probably doesn’t even believe in the law and 2) is making a point, right? It’s not about getting this passed, as far as I can tell.

      Hm. I’d like to see the ACLU file suit in defense of the Republicans (because their heads might explode and they might learn something about the 4th Amendment), so I’m in full support.
