Unqualified Offerings

"[I]t is tempting to interpret this to mean that there is a broad swath of the right that is actively hostile to contraception. That, I think, is an over-interpretation. I think the better interpretation is that a broad swath of the right is willing to use contraception as a battle against the other side. Their opposition to it is shallow. They certainly should not get a cookie for the lack of deep-seated opposition, but we should at least recognize it for what it is. There’s a segment of the right that would come out against puppies and in favor of flag burning if they saw a way to make it into a fight with Barack Hussein Obama and his team." (03/12/12)
