I know that Kansas is kinda cold in the winter but apparently not cold enough.

A Kansas Republican State Senator pitched himself a hissy fit about women “wearing skimpy skirts or blouses with plunging necklines” when they come testify before his committee.

Senator Mitch Holmes opines …

He offered more detailed guidance to women conferees because he had observed provocatively clad females at the Capitol. Revealing too much of the body during testimony to the Senate committee is a distraction, he said.Holmes said he considered stipulating men had to wear suit and tie when addressing his Senate committee, but decided males didn’t need supplemental instruction on how to look professional.

Holmes, who is also known as Old Coot With Goggly Eyes, did not meet with much approval from the female legislators on either side of the aisle.

“Oh, for crying out loud, what century is this?” said Sen. Laura Kelly, a Topeka Democrat.“Who’s going to define low-cut?” said Sen. Vicki Schmidt, R-Topeka. “Does it apply to senators?”

How many women are going to say to Mitch, “You ain’t the boss of me,” before he gets it? And by “gets it” I mean shut the hell up.
