Break out the smelling salts and fainting couches, the Florida Republicans are getting the vapors!

During a debate over a bill that would prohibit governments from deducting union dues out of a worker's paycheck last week, Florida state Rep. state Rep. Scott Randolph (D) argued that Republicans seem to only be against regulations when it comes to big business.

In his speech on the state House floor, Randolph even suggested that his wife could "incorporate her uterus" if it would stop the GOP from passing more restrictive abortion laws.

Republican leadership scolded the Democratic congressman, telling him that talk about body parts was unwelcome.

I have to say, the line about Republicans only protecting women's rights if they incorporated their uterus is frakin' brilliant. But being a squeamish bunch, a Republican took Randolph aside and actually pulled the "won't someone think of the children?" excuse, telling him that the young pages and interns didn't need to hear that kind of nasty talk.

I'm sure using even clinical terms make Republicans feel uncomfortable down there. It's a damn shame they're not equally as squeamish making laws to put the government right into women's uteri.
