Pattern possibly detected

TLO’s Patrick is all over it:

[Friday] HB 1472 passed unanimously out of a House Judiciary committee.

Introduced by piano tuner turned fun-hating, freedom-loving State Rep. Travis Dunlap [R-Bartlesville], it would require digital service providers to block the transmission of “obscene material” a.k.a. porn) by request. Additionally, service providers will have to notify consumers a in a “conspicuous manner” that they can request to have obscene material blocked.

There’s no reason to think that Travis Dunlap’s concept of smut is any more refined than, say, Potter Stewart’s, but there’s something else you should know about this guy:

[T]his would probably be a convenient time to mention that Dunlap is the same guy who introduced HB 1277. Named the “Fairness in Fault Act,” it would make it more difficult for individuals to seek a divorce on grounds of “incompatibility.” Think about that for a second? Dunlap’s introduced laws that could block his ability to watch Internet porn and make it more difficult for his wife to leave him. Yikes. Is he trying to tell us something here?

Nothing you couldn’t figure out on your own, I’m pretty sure.

    (Sigh). Our state legislators are pros at rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    It’s a bad idea because it’s unworkable, but I couldn’t figure out what the piano tuner crack had to do with it when I scanned it at TLO either.
