Quote Of The Day

Steyn explains why the culture war matters:
If the non-political sphere is permanently left-of-center — the movies, the pop songs, the plays, the sitcoms, the newspapers plus the churches, schools and much else — it's simply unreasonable to expect people to walk into a polling booth every other November and vote conservative. The culture is where the issues get framed and the boundaries set.
All of which is by way of saying that if you can't turn on the TV without catching a drama featuring babies being born headless because of pollution caused by evil businessmen, then it's going to be hard to make a case against the ecoloon cause d'jour.
