It looks like he being honest by calling himself a Republican.
All snarkiness aside, I'm not sure you're correct. The "Republican Ideals" mentioned in the article are also "Libertarian Ideals". While you can find Republicans who will champion porn, they are fewer and further between than libertarians who do so. (And I'm not trying to besmirch libertarians or Libertarians, since I'm still conflicted over whether or not I am one).
I think if he were honest with himself, he would a)admit that he's really moved toward the Libertarian camp, and b)confess that he watches Jewel's tapes regularly....

(I'm usually either right or wrong.)
There are lots of us "Small-l's" in the GOP. For me, it's a matter of logical consistency. If I don't want the Government messing with me, then I really don't have the right to ask that Government to force these people to behave. They're all adults. They can make their own decisions. My opinion about the morality of those decisions shouldn't necessarily translate into Government policy; not if I don't want the same Government sticking its big, fat nose into my affairs.
