You Saw This Coming, Right?

In my post about governors lining up for some of that free federal money, I said:

It's almost like if the government starts handing out taxpayer money like beads at Mardi Gras, everybody puts their hands out.

How right I was. Apparently the porn industry is now asking for a bailout:

"The government’s handing out money to the auto industry,” Francis, producer of the “Girls Gone Wild” video series, said on the phone from his Santa Monica office. “Why shouldn’t it hand some to an industry the nation could not live without?"

If douchebaggery were a mystical art, Joe Francis would be a Jedi Master. But I have to agree with his logic. The industry's big problem of course, is how to continue to get people to pay for something available free on the internet.
