Richard Nixon ushered in the War on Drugs. George W. Bush, the War on Terror. And now Rick Santorum introduces the War on Porn.

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says that “America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography” because the Obama administration favors “pornographers over children.”

In an undated statement on his official website, the former Pennsylvania senator promises that he will “vigorously” fight to make sure porn isn’t easily available in the U.S.

“Pornography is toxic to marriages and relationships,” the statement says. “It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking.”

Uh, I'm pretty sure studies have shown that porn has reduced violence against women, but whatever. He's rolling.

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,” the statement continues, adding that these laws should be “vigorously enforced.”

So, to review.

Extending health insurance to 30 million people = socialist tyranny.

Instructing the Attorney General of the United States to prosecute Marriott for showing boobies = small government.
