    Last week The New Republics Elizabeth Stoker Bruenig wrote an extended pre-mortem not just for Mike Huckabees presidential campaign but for the culture wars in general. Tracing the rise of Huckabees political career to the rise of the religious Right, she tries to use Huckabees career as a stand-in for the fortunes of religious conservatism writ large. To Bruenig, a Huckabee defeat will represent one more [conservative] loss in a greater, longer defeat in Americas culture wars. I agree with Bruenig that Mike Huckabee will probably lose, but I come to the exact opposite conclusion about the culture wars. A...

    Surely, progressives will celebrate the artistic genius in this exhibit. Or, will they cry out that their savior has been defiled?

    Even in the midst of economic and political melt down, Sen. Evan Bayh was still between 10 and 20 points ahead of his potential Republican challengers. Why did the Indiana Democrat announce he will not run for re-election? "Even pols are sick of Washington," blared the headline. Bayh's friend and ex-chief of staff, former Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson, told the press, "Those frustrations have increasingly worn on him, and I think his willingness to tolerate the frustrations has decreased over time." Evan Bayh is tired of being the middle patch of ground in a culture war that never seems...

    In the early days of womens liberation, many activists saw abortion as a necessary and even desirable component of the sexual revolution of the sixties. Freed from childbearing, women could engage in numerous relationships without consequences. However, like many of the tenets of feminism itself, such attitudes no longer prevail. In the grueling battle over abortion, there is growing public perception of antipathy to the barbarous practice. There is a certain remorse surrounding the issue that even its most ardent supporters find difficult to overcome. Such a perception represents a psychological victory on the part of those pro-life forces whose...

    Republicans plan to use Congress to pull Sen. John F. Kerry and vulnerable Democrats into the cultural wars over gay rights, abortion and guns, envisioning a series of debates and votes that will highlight the candidates' positions on divisive issues, according to congressional aides and GOP officials. The strategy will be on full display today, as Kerry (Mass.) and Sen. John Edwards (N.C.), the leading Democratic presidential candidates, plan to interrupt their Super Tuesday campaigning to fly to Washington for half a dozen votes on gun legislation, including liability protections for gun manufacturers. Both men oppose the liability bill, placing...

    Gay Marriage Ruling Could Be Problem for Kerry Thu February 05, 2004 01:04 PM ET By Alan Elsner WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A legal ruling compelling Massachusetts to allow same-sex marriages may prove troublesome for Sen. John Kerry, if he becomes the Democratic candidate to oppose President Bush in the November U.S. election. Political analysts said Wednesday's decision by Massachusetts' Supreme Judicial Court would be ammunition for Republican strategists planning to portray Kerry, the Democratic front-runner, as "another Massachusetts liberal." The fact that the Democratic convention this summer is scheduled to take place in Boston may help their case, playing on...

    ST. LOUIS - A former Southern Baptist Convention president stirred interfaith tumult when he described Muhammad, Islam's revered founder, as a "demon-possessed pedophile." The Rev. Jerry Vines made the comments Monday night at the Southern Baptist Pastors Conference, drawing strong denunciation from Muslim leaders Tuesday when his statements were publicized. But the Rev. Jack Graham, the new president of the Southern Baptist Convention, and the Rev. James Merritt, outgoing president, supported Vines. Hodan Hassan, a spokeswoman for the Washington-based Council for American-Islamic Relations, said Vines' comments were divisive and inaccurate. "This kind of hate-filled rhetoric is very shocking," Hassan said....
