Funding Both Sides of the Culture War

The Mo-Joe crew (sans a vacationing Joe Scarborough) was flippantly dismissive of the NPR exposé video that got a development exec axed.  In the tape, the NPR executive describes Tea Party folks in racist terms.  Carl Bernstein in particular seems hung up on the culture-war aspect of the NPR battle.

Problem is, conservatives are tired of funding both sides of the culture war.

(video from the Daily Caller, because MSNBC's player is a pain.)

I guess they find the argument so tedious because they presume to have won the culture war, as if "war" was a suitable metaphor.  Did I miss the moment when Larry Flint planted a flag somewhere unmentionable and won the culture war?
