You would think that a state lawmaker should be at least passingly familiar with the US Constitution. After all, there is this little thing called the “Supremacy Clause” in the US Constitution that says if state and Federal law conflict, Federal law takes precedence. Plus there’s also that pesky little fact that the US Constitution is the “supreme law of the land”.
Well, apparently someone forgot that. As in Earnest G. Smith, Representative for the Georgia House of Representatives District 125.
Seems that Smith is none too pleased about a recent rather crude but arguably complimentary bit of Photoshop satire which imposed his head on the body of a porn star. So he’s come out in favor of making such vulgar satirical use of Photoshop illegal in Georgia. “No one has a right to make fun of anyone,” he says.
What a freaking idiot. But he managed to get elected anyway.
