Conservatives and Porn

Re the ridiculously stupid “study” that claimed to show that conservatives buy more online porn than liberals, that has been already deservedly trashed here and here and here and I’m sure countless other places – Jim Manzi adds what is hopefully the last comment to a non-story that has already outlived it’s deserved shelf life. His final lines:

There is an argument not to do the analysis by Zip Code because of debatable broadband penetration rates, but why didn’t they at least do this at the county level? It would not have eliminated the “not at the individual level” problem, but would be a lot better than state-level analysis. I did this kind of work just to get a blog post right; I don’t get why they weren’t willing to do a little more owrk (sic) for a published research paper.

Because then it wouldn’t support their foregone conclusion, that conservatives are all a bunch of sexually-repressed hypocritical closeted porn lovers. Or was that a rhetorical question?
