UPDATE:   No sooner had I posted this than I see that Rep. Steve Douchenozzle Stockman is also claiming on Twitter that female spectators were threatening to throw feces too.  Really?  Really?!?!

Just when I thought Texas couldn’t get any weirder, I see this (h/t JM Ashby at Bob Cesca’s blog)…

As people file into the State Legislature to witness the fight over the latest abortion bill, the security guards are confiscating tampons and pads from the women.   Men can go in with a gun strapped to their hip but tampons are strictly verboten!  Rachel Maddow has links to similar pics too.

Baby Jeebus on a cracker this country has lost it’s ever loving mind.

      I know, it sounds like a joke but it isn’t. Texas republicans spread a rumor that spectators planned to throw tampons, pads and feces at the legislators when the abortion bill was debated and so the officers protecting the courthouse started confiscating them. But guns, those are still allowed in Texas courtrooms. I guess you never know when you have to defend yourself from a harmless wad of cotton on a string.

  2. Aren’t tampons protected in the constitution? Great post – crazy world!

      Yeah! Somewhere in Article I, Section 5 just after where it states that Congress will allow the public to attend sessions and the public is allowed to “fart in their general direction”. 😉
