Inspired by this:
A bill that would have required parental approval to let their young teenagers go to a tanning parlour got torpedoed at the last minute by a amendment sponsored by state Sen. Michael McLachlan, R-Danbury, that required parental permission for abortions.
That infuriated supporters of the tanning bill, who say it might have done something worthwhile -- reduce the number of young people getting skin cancer.
"I have no idea why he did this,'' Nancy Alderman, executive director of Environment and Human Health Inc., a North Haven-based advocacy group, said of McLachlan.
He did it because he is an asshole. But I digress.
His T-Shirt says "I'm with me."
In a sane world, this kind of thing would be greeted by legislative punishment - Sen. McLachlan's bills would be killed in committee, or on the floor, without a chance of passing, until the tanning bill passed.
But this isn't a sane world. Because in this world, Sen. McLachlan's bills are so rife with jackassery, so completely unserious that they kill themselves out of stupidity.
So, sorry Danbury, you deserve better.
