Santorum Meets Molestia

Santorum Meets Molestia
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has promised to initiate a war on porn if elected.

“America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking,” the former Pennsylvania senator wrote in a statement posted on his campaign website.

...

“Current federal ‘obscenity’ laws prohibit distribution of hardcore (obscene) pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops and through the mail or by common carrier,” Santorum wrote in the statement, adding that these laws should be “vigorously enforced.

Yeah, screw the economy, screw unemployment, screw the national debt and deficit, and screw foreign wars! Rick “Frothy Mix” Santorum realizes that the real issue at hand is pornography. Obviously he has his priorities straight!

Even if all Americans agreed with Rick that pornography was a serious issue (if an issue at all), what makes him think he can fix it with a “War on Porn”? Has the “War on Drugs” helped with drugs? We’ve been fighting it for over 40 years, and all it’s done is push recreational drugs into the black market to be distributed and controlled by criminals, just as criminals once controlled booze during Prohibition in the 1920s.

And what Rick fails to realize is that we already had a “War on Porn” in this country. Prior to the Miller v. California Supreme Court case of 1973, pornography was illegal, and just as with drugs and alcohol, its prohibition only forced it underground to be controlled by criminals. Prohibition never works. It didn’t work for booze, it isn’t working for drugs, and it won’t work for pornography. Those who fail to learn from their history are doomed to repeat it, and unfortunately, social conservatives like Rick Santorum will always be on the wrong side of history.

Fortunately for us all, Santorum has just dropped out of the presidential race; Unfortunately for him, he now has to face the wrath and ire of the ever-so-horny Princess Molestia, who very much likes her porn (especially her clopfics) and doesn’t much like Rick wanting to take it away. (Though I feel sorrier for Molestia here: frothy mixes of lube and fecal matter aren’t exactly the most sanitary. You’d don’t know what you’ll catch from him, dear!)
