"Culture Wars" explained in 24 words
NBC's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" is one of the best shows of the new season.
On the show, there has been an ongoing battle between 2 of the characters; "Matt" the head writer/Hollywood liberal, and "Harriet" the anti-gay Christian-right actress.
A couple weeks ago, Harriet asked Matt to explain the culture wars. Matt's response was the best line (and most succinct explanation) I've heard from a TV show in years:
Harriet: I don't even know what the sides are in the culture wars.
Matt: Well, your side hates my side because you think we think you're stupid. And my side hates your side because we think you're stupid.
