Politician moves to make vulgar Photoshopping illegal

Quote:
A state lawmaker in Georgia is so perturbed that someone used Photoshop to put his head on a porn star's body that he now wants any kind of lewd Photoshopping to be banned. "No one has a right to make fun of anyone," he says.

Sometimes people don't appreciate flattery.
They are so engrossed in their own grossly skewed view of the world that their sense of humor flies into the night like a married lover late home for dinner.
How else can one explain the quite bizarre intentions of Georgia state Rep. Earnest Smith?
He clearly sees a vast importance in being Earnest.
He clearly believes that his constituents are so drawn to his Earnestness that anything that deviates it from absolute Earnestness deserves the full metal force of the law.
Which is why he wants to make lewd, coarse, filthy Photoshopping illegal and punishable with a fine of $1,000.
You see, some devious, twisted human being placed His Earnestness's head on the body of a porn star. He did this for public consumption on the blog Georgia Politics Unfiltered. The porn star has a very nice body. He is a porn star, after all. And he is not Ron Jeremy.

Okay Darnk, I just misread your "Smoke'em if you got'em!" as "Stroke'em if you got'em!". I'm going back to bed!

It was pretty predictable that doing this was going to result in him temporarily becoming an extremely popular target for vulgar photoshopping...

its just a state lawmaker. if it gets out of georgia then i'd be worried but right now its in a boohick county in a southern backwards state that has way more against it than some idiot state congressman wanting a law that, if it were to pass, would affect only georgia and be pretty much unenforceable.

I doubt it's enforceable in Georgia, unless I'm misunderstanding Hustler Magazine, Inc. v. Falwell, where the Supreme Court seems to have said, very emphatically, that Americans do, in fact, have a perfect right to make savage fun of public figures, at least, if they so choose.

It's just some epic butthurt in motion to laugh at. Nobody is taking the proposed bill seriously.

I would gladly permanently photoshop a blanket over his head to avoid this problem.

Not to mention that parody is quite explicitly protected even in many cases which could otherwise be considered IP violations.

The right to make fun of people is quite solidly built into our law.

To me this incident simply highlights the need for IQ-testing as a condition of taking office (even in state legislatures).

This testing could even be multiple choice. An example question:

1. Which of the following is the most likely result, if you propose a bill criminalizing photo-manipulation that is deemed "lewd"?
a. There will be a marked drop in photo-manipulation containing lewd elements.
b. Though there will be little immediate drop in lewd photo-manipulation, my bill and the attendant publicity will put me in the ranks of top contenders for higher office.
c. In the rush to create new lewd manipulated-photos using my head, several image-source sites such as "microdongs.com,", "manboobs.com," and "donkey-man-love.com" will be flooded with traffic and will crash.

It's apparently available as a domain name, and a bargain at $11.59 a year.
