Bush Obscenity Policy

Bush obscenity policy is analyzed by Whitney Strub in "Let Them Eat Porn" at Bad Subjects.

Strub asserts:
While his constituency votes itself further and further away from any viable dream of affordable health care or economic security, the Republican mantra seems to be “let them eat social policy.” And indeed, on this level conservatives are well fed, gorging on a steady diet of abstinence-only education, heterosexual marriage, intelligent design, and the incremental erosion of abortion rights.

Strub's essay examines Bush obscenity policy in terms of the rhetoric used to justify it and the extension of the normative “family values” sexual project it supports.
