Hell in a handbasket ...

Things truly are tough all over. Banks were the first to go hat-in-hand to the federal government for a bailout; and then, a few weeks later, the auto-makers famously flew - and drove - to Capitol Hill to beg for cash. Now porno wants a piece of the pie ... no pun intended.

Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis are petitioning the government for upwards of $5 billion for the porn biz. According to Fox Business, the money is to, er, re-excite the traditional pornography market, i.e., mags, movies, etc., which has suffered due to the availability of free smut on the Internet.

Certain politicians have suggested that President-elect Obama should appoint someone to serve as a "car czar" to help revive the auto industry's fortunes. If he decides to appoint a "czar" to assist porn-peddlers, I'm thinking that Bill Clinton would be a good pick for the job. I mean, Larry Flynt was one of Clinton's biggest defenders during the whole Lewinsky imbroglio.

Oh, and speaking of Larry Flynt. He is suing his nephews for tarnishing the family name by trying to sell low-quality porno flicks. Considering that Flynt has amassed a fortune by publblishing a magazine in which trashy gals are photographed spreading their legs so wide that it's often possible to see their kidneys, he has a lot of nerve for suggesting that his family name can be tarnished any further.
