Culture War$ roll on

Aside from Sanford, Florida, the biggest moment of the summer’s Culture War Revival tour has been Texas.  Abortion rights hero Wendy Davis has raised nearly $1 million since her filibuster.  What this tells us is that there are way too many over optimistic Democrats out there.  Why?  Texas is not electing a Democrat governor in the mid terms of Obama’s second term

It also tells us that Democrats are in a fighting mood about the culture wars.  In the 80’s and 90’s Democrats tried to run away from these issues.  Maybe it’s base mobilization or just the perception that attitudes on social issues have changed.  Either way, it looks like both sides are gearing up to fight this war.
