Commenting on Pat Buchanan's 1992 declaration of a "culture war ... for the soul of America," Politico's Bill Scher remarks that "This week, nearly every Republican and conservative movement leader stood quietly as the Supreme Court effectively extended equal marriage rights to more than half of the country." He goes on to list the GOP's three biggest culture war losses (abortion, birth control, and marriage equality) and remarks that:

Pat Buchanan was never going to see his dream of an America without abortion or gays. But it was not preordained for Republicans to lose the culture war so completely. Bad strategic choices of their own making boxed them in a corner, leaving them no choice but to surrender at the courthouse steps.
