Dennis Bonnen: Don't Mess w/ Sexus

Dennis Bonnen, our man in Austin, is making a name for himself for opposing the governor's plan to innoculate girls against a deadly sexually-transmitted virus, and he's managing to make himself look like a doofus in the process, as this post in an Austin blog attests:

Rep. Bonnen Has a Short Memory

Rep. Dennis Bonnen laid out HB 1098 tonight in the Public Health committee. His bill is essentially a rebuke to Perry's much maligned executive order requiring all 6th grade girls to agree to have loose morals and never use a condom.

During the hearing, Bonnen mentioned that he had never heard of Merck prior to the Governor's executive order. Only, you know, he accepted $500 from them in 2002. So there's that.

Some of the comments on the blog post are sorta funny, but you'll have to click the link to read them.
