What is this talking point that Dems want to increase porn?
I've heard 2 callers on WJ harping on it this morning. Where the heck did this come from?

1. Must be because we have a problem with this so-called
Porn Task Force or whatever it is they're setting up. It has nothing to do with child pornography, and nothing to do with the sex trade and child slavery in nations like Kuwait. It's all about monitoring the choices of consenting adults who purchase videos and such that were produced by other consenting adults. Isn't that nice? :puke:

12. I have to disagree
they really don't want to monitor our choices. They simply want to throw it out there knowing it is unconstitutional and hear us complain about it so they get political mileage out of it.

Without porn and abortion, they have no traction with the christian right (or is it the christian wrong??)

2. Even most of the posts at FR are against this task force
It's the usual 30-35% of the real nuts over there that support it.

10. That's about the only sexual release many of them have
that, and the sheep . . . well, maybe when their mother does her laundry and they can get to the bras before she comes down to their rooms . . .

8. Did you see her on The Daily Show?
That was one of their funniest interviews EVER. I'm stunned she actually knows how to breathe in the first place.

11. Breathing in the right place is one of the precious few qualifications
required for porn stardom.

4. The repukes being the liars they are, accept money from porn
Queens and porn producers. Porn Queens even get to meet the president where the average Joe, can't pass the rigorous screening required. So who wants to increase porn? Meeting and accepting money from porn Queens doesn't encourage porn?

13. Psstt....she didn't meet the president. They were charging $50,000 for
that, and Mary and her manager didn't want to pay that much. So they only paid for the $5,000 tickets to the dinner.

14. Um, it was a blind invitation
I used to get them all the time too - and the calls from some business leadership council crap.

They had no idea she was coming until her press conference before the dinner, and Mary never was allowed to get close to the president.

As far as the Bush administration, they have hired prosecutors, taken resources out of the FBI's child porn unit, etc. to focus on ADULT obscenity.

Yeah, the dems may distance themselves from the adult industry in general, but thankfully they aren't trying to control what you can watch or do in the privacy of your bedroom.

7. Just noise to unite their fractured base.
Their base has cracks due to runaway deficits and an SC chief who in their opinion is not conservative enough. Plus they've been making a lot of squeaks lately about Bush being lax on the borders due to his GastArbeiter (guest worker) policy.
