Reps. Doug Ose (R-Calif.) and Lamar Smith (R-Texas) are literally cussin’ up a storm over the FCC’s decision not to fine NBC stations for airing rock star Bono’s "f-word"-laced acceptance speech during the Golden Globes last January.

Last week, the duo introduced legislation making eight words and phrases indecent no matter how they’re used: "s__t", "p___", "f__k", "c___", "a__hole", "c___sucker" and "motherf___er". They also stipulated that combining them with other words and all their grammatical derivations would be no-nos, too.
