Oh, sure.

We had Jim Crow, but the widespread availability of porn is much, much worse than systematic racial oppression and lynchings ...

Not even remotely likely.

In Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union (1997), the USSC struck down anti-indecency provisions of the Communications Decency Act. Even Scalia and Thomas joined the majority in the decision.

This just might motivate a lot of GOP guys to distance themselves from him.

What if GE wants to look porn? To deny GE the ability to look at porn is to punish a "job creator", since corporations looking at porn create jobs in the porn industry. If you follow the thinking of Santorum and his ilk, that's precisely the irrational logic their ideas lead to.
Santorum is clearly in favor of big government.

Ban this, restrict that. Its about all he ever comes out with.

So you want a system that promotes more irresponsible parenting.

That's not conservative at all. If you want to build walls around your children, then by all means, just don't build them around me or my children, because I am a responsible parent. I don't need any help from Rick Santorum to tell me how I should raise my kids or live my life.

The Tea Party is the GOP now. They are not at all seperate anymore. Sane tea partiers left when the GOP invaded it with their neocon minions.
