9. Rick Santorum promises to ban hard-core pornography

The funny thing about Sen. Rick Santorum’s proposed ban on pornography was that he volunteered it on his website, instead of agreeing to it as a condition to garner support, as US Rep. Michele Bachmann did. The other funny thing about it was that he called for a ban specifically of hard-core porn, which suggests he’s OK with some softer versions.

The statement on Santorum’s site doesn’t seem to be working anymore, but Snopes has a copy in which he calls it “toxic to marriages and relationships.” Not nearly as toxic as constantly hunting around on computers and under mattresses for evidence of said porn, we’d suggest.
