In Louisiana a Democratic state representative is trying to disguise his party's hedonist agenda by standing on its head that old post-Watergate liberal cliche that "the cover up was worse than the crime". He wants to make it a crime NOT to cover up. "House Bill 1626 would punish anyone caught wearing low-riding pants with a fine of as much as $500 or as many as six months in jail, or both ... [and] would ban a person from "wearing his pants below his waist and thereby exposing his skin or intimate clothing."" This has caused a split with those bleeding hearts of the ACLU, whose director displayed his typical leftist elitism by saying "I can think of a lot of workers, plumbers, who are working and expose their buttocks and the beginning of the crack of their anus."

That legislator was not the first opponent there of wardrobe malfunctions. "A Westwego councilman in 2002 ditched his attempt to bar low-riding jeans from public buildings after the city attorney reported that an ordinance regulating drawers-exposing jeans would interfere with freedom of speech ...." For those ACLU friends of criminals who consider that argument a stretch even for them, I suggest they read about an artist whose vocalizings would have been prohibited by such a law. "Joseph Pujol was a colorful Frenchman [of course] who, under the stage name "Le Petomane" (which sort of translates into 'The Fartiste'), became one of the most celebrated entertainers of the late 19th century farting his way to fame and riches ...Freud would point to a portrait of the great performer in his office and talk of how he formed some of his ideas about anal fixation from these shows." (This explains a lot about that sex-obsessed quack's cocaine-induced fantasies which passed as serious theories to generations of repressed geeks practicing "analysis".) You can read more about his "deft control over the muscles in his abdomen and sphincter in order to break wind at will, and -- most impressively -- in musical notes" at "Behind Music".

One more instance of this attempted leftist denial from "Waist Case": "In 2000, Orleans Parish Deputy Assessor Donald Smith called for a city ordinance against wearing pants "below the equator," as he described the practice at the time." While I don't recall seeing any pictures of Gisele Bundchen in slacks in her own homeland, this will still come as a great surprise to the Southern hemisphere source who pointed out this item, the Aussie blogger of Hot Buttered Death.
