Let There Be Porn

Yes, now they're going after hotel room porn:

A coalition of 13 conservative groups -- including the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America -- took out full-page ads in some editions of USA Today earlier this month urging the Justice Department and FBI to investigate whether some of the pay-per-view movies widely available in hotels violate federal and state obscenity laws.
I say, bring it on. This is going to backfire on the right, and here's why: Conservatives like porn, too. Unlike all those "cultural' and "decency" issues that Republicans like to campaign on for the sake of "the children," hotel porn is something enjoyed by adults, at least the majority of the time, without children present. And, as Bill Maher once said (because no one but him would ever say this), hotel porn actually prevents affairs, because men on business trips watch it instead of going out. If Spectravision went away tomorrow, expect to see adultery (and prostitution) skyrocket soon after.

Let the GOP become the party of no-more-porn, and see where they end up as a result.

"Conservatives like porn, too."

Classic. You going to sell a t-shirt advertising your website with this quote?

A truly silent majority, eh?
