Andrew Sullivan thinks all this talk about contraception is causing the extreme right-wing to place themselves precisely where Barack Obama wants them. Maybe so. I do think that trying to restrict birth control is a political loser. It may not be in the Bill of Rights but for most people in this country, the right to control when they have sex, and whether it's for recreation or procreation, is as sacred as anything covered by the First Amendment and maybe even the Second.
But then I think this whole "war on religion" thing is a bogus, ginned-up controversy to try and drum up votes against Obama. He's apparently also trying to take everyone's guns away even though he hasn't actually done anything to make that happen.
