Presidential Sex Scandal

Associated Press: Conservatives Upset at Romney for Not Doing More to Halt On-Demand Porn at Marriotts. Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, who rails against the “cesspool” of pornography, is being criticized by social conservatives who argue that he should have tried to halt hardcore hotel movie offerings during his near-decade on the Marriott board.

From the left, Al Sharpton criticizes Mitt Romney for not really believing in God. From the right, the social conservatives criticize Romney for, uh, not being Mormon enough.

Next up, prohibitionists against Romney because Marriott sells alcohol. Then, the American Dental Association opposing Romney because Marriott sells caffeinated sodas? You can find the rest of the On Command Corp. contracts on the site as well.
