Reclaiming Popular Culture? Please. Stop with all this whistling past-the-graveyard stuff. It's time to acknowledge that something sysmic has taken place in Western Civilization and the world we once knew is gone and is not coming back. These prescriptions are merely ways for us to continue in our denial. That doesn't mean we must surrender our principles and be absorbed into the hive of secular humanism that everyone else has been but it will keep us from wasting what little capital we have left on efforts that are unfruitful. American Liberals and their followers are just going to have to learn the hard way. If they learn at all.

Our economic doom is not a question of if, just a question of when......as the libturds roll off the economic cliff, they will still be in denial.

Western Civ, at least to the extent of its stature at the pinnacle of achievement, is very much a product of liberalism or, what is another way of saying the same thing, rationality and science. As for the apocalyptic assertions of Christianists, what else is new under the sun.

Also, principles are the basic substance of the moral universe, but you losers act as though convictions, stubborn belief, are actually principles. It is lazy nonsense and very much at the root of the decline of our Republic.

It is leftist principles which are indistinguishable from modern liberalism that is causing tbe decline of our republic. Christianity brought science to western civilization along with liberty. Leftism is what is tearing it down. Leftists can only destroy what others have built.

Say what? Christianity for centuries stood in the way of science -- independent science, that is. We owe very little of our medical, communications, automotive or any other discoveries to theology of any sort.

Who said being a "community organizer" doesn't prepare you for anything? The governing part may be a little dicey, but you sure know how to campaign.  And now we all know now about the Obama organization.  Obviously, GOP needs one.  

But in the run-up to 2016, we also need to find a way to extend our reach in popular culture.  That's because -- as Mark Halperin has noted -- the left is going to try make every viable GOP contender unacceptable in the eyes of the public before the 2016 season even starts off.

Obviously, if the right...
