THE INTENTIONAL DEFEATS OF THE CULTURE WARS

The following items...
--Passage of unconstitutional anti-abortion laws

--Passage of symbolic abortion-related laws such as the Unborn Victims of Violence Act

--Calls for intervention to save Terri Schiavo

--The claims that liberals are out to destroy Christmas

--The erection of a Ten Commandments monument in the Alabama State Courthouse by Chief Justice Roy Moore

--Introducing a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage

--The opposition to the ascent of Gene Robinson to the position of Bishop in the Episcopal Church

and of course,

--The impeachment of President Clinton for lying about a blowjob
...were never meant to produce a tangible victory on matters of substance for the culture-war right. What they were geared to was to enhance a false perception of victimhood. The culture warriors are much more comfortable doing that than pursuing actual victory. It works much better for the Two Minutes Hate that their disciples get from Rush, Coulter et al.
