Mar 18, 2012 Full story: Yahoo! 91

Rick Santorum doubled down Sunday on a campaign promise to crack down on the distribution of explicit pornography if elected president, saying exposure to the content "can be very damaging."

WASHINGTON (AP) No longer will the attorney general be photographed in front of two partially nude statues in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice.

The department spent $8,000 on blue drapes that hide the two giant, aluminum art deco statues, said spokesman Shane Hix. For aesthetic reasons, he said, the drapes were occasionally hung in front of the statues before formal events. The department used to rent the drapes, but has now purchased them and left them hanging.

The drapes provide a nice background for television cameras, Hix said.

ABC News reported that Attorney General John Ashcroft ordered the statues covered because he didn't like being photographed in front of them.

Rick is already "picking out the drapes".

How much damage to the US economy would ending Internet pornography cause? By the estimates I've heard, porn still accounts for more than 50% of Internet traffic.

These may not be jobs that Santorum respects, but they are jobs.... and a multi-billion dollar industry that pays taxes.

Porn doesn't ruin people. People ruin people.

Hey reich wingers....even you don't want your government preventing you from viewing porn. So you better hop on this before the convention in Tampa. You know how much the porn viewing in the hotels go up when and where you have your convention.

I'm sure Angry Rick's supporters are not in favor of the Gov telling them what they can and cannot watch in the privacy of their own homes....or those theaters you take the misses to.

Hi Baps!Hope you're having a great weekend.

Romney can't afford to say ANYTHING about religious issues... because it'd only show how kooky Mormonism really is.

Anyone notice the reich-wingers are not flocking to this story. They can't bring themselves to defending Angry Rick's hypocritical claim to want smaller Gov, while also wanting to use the Oval Office to outlaw porn and push his personal views?

You'd get more reich-wingers if the article was entitled..."Pres. Obama Ties His Shoelaces".

Hi Chicago Guy! LOL! I know Romney won't say a word! lol. I've read up on them through the years and kookie doesn't begin to describe their beliefs. If people only knew, lol. I feel sorry for Republicans with their choices, I really do and they're fighting hard but not knowing what they're fighting for just that they're against Obama. Poor thangs, lol.

Santorum better be careful, the bible belters consume more porn than any other demographic in this nation. He's in danger of losing his only base if he keeps this up.

Actually, they'll support any cause they think would get a win...then they assume Angry Rick is only joking about taking their porn away.

Just wait until the wacky reich wing learns that taking away birth control might mean the porn actresses would then demand condoms be worn by the men in the video so they don't get pregnant.

I think the reich-wing will push back against banning birth control when they figure out it could impact their porn viewing pleasures.

Thhink about it this contridiction of desires.

Angry Ricky, running for head of the GOP, wants to ban porn.

Angry Rush, the leading mouthpiece of the GOP, wants all women who use birth control to send him video tapes of them having sex.

...Rush, you better get your order in quick. Rick will ban you getting those tapes you desire...you fatazz freak.
