Culture as a campaign issue
Power Line looks at efforts by Mitt Romney to make fighting the corruption of culture in America a political issue as embodied in a new television ad, "Ocean". But apart from decrying it, what actual steps can be taken to address the issue?
I'm sympathetic to the message of the ad, but can't help noting the complete absence of any suggestion as to what steps can realistically be taken to clean up the culture. With the Supreme Court still committed, seemingly, to the view that pornography and pole-dancing are the core activities protected by the First Amendment, and with the ability of a public high school to prevent students from unveiling a "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" banner a 5-4 squeaker, it isn't obvious how any President can deliver much on this issue.
