First Amendment advocate and noted misogybag Larry Flynt needs a bailout. Flynt, along with predatory douchehound and all-around scumfuck Joe Francis, is asking Congress for $5 billion to help the porn industry.
According to Flynt, "People are too depressed to be sexually active. This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex."
People may be too depressed to be sexually active, but apparently they're not too depressed for a wank: "...The industry itself is in no financial danger — DVD sales have slipped over the past year, but Web traffic has continued to grow." Well, that's good news.
So why are Flynt and Francis asking Congress for money? Free publicity, I guess. It's one way to get your name on the CNN ticker without getting arrested.
I just don't know why Dink Flamingo doesn't jump on this too. It has to beat spending your days at the Army Surplus outlet sniffing around the dress blues. Then again, Dink's probably got too much class to hang around the likes of Flynt and Francis.
