Republican Senators love them some stocking wearing women. In fact, they insist this fetish be indulged in the office, at all times and in all weather. Ladies, I got your back. Hell, I got your fronts, too.
The basic issue here is...I'm straight up confused actually. Are they being sexist? Do they think they are training new staff to the costume of the professional government? Given the Republican habit of repression and general cobagishness in the area of social freedom, I am leaning toward sexist. The insistence that women wear hose underneath a pant suit is strange. Strange like a man wearing a diaper to work or trying to grab toilet paper from the stall to the right with his left hand.
I can't help but feel that this is somehow related.
