Sarah Palin, GOP: Back in the RIng, Fighting Back

Culture Watch vol. 31

The GOP has roared back to life with McCain's nomination of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his VP choice, with the GOP Convention the most watched convention in television history.

ELECTION '08:

Non-stop smears, internet rumors, editorials and commentary make Palin the new punching bag. Surprise - she's punching back, with a smile. Myths are being debunked, and smears are being answered. I expand on this in 'Liberal Meltdown.'

Media is experiencing backlash as over 51% of U.S. voters think the media is trying to harm Sarah Palin. Ya think? Hundreds of angry people in a small town outside Milwaukee taunted reporters and TV crews traveling with Sen. John McCain on Friday, chanting "Be fair!"

Meanwhile, polls show Palin is more popular than both McCain and Obama. Obama can take heart, though. They love him in Iran. Iranian TV is lavishing praise on him, stating that his election "would improve the situation in America." Maybe for Iran.


Lost in the shuffle is new evidence that Obama was closely associated as early as age 25 to a key advisor to a Saudi billionaire who mentored the founding members of the Black Panthers. Hmmm... meanwhile, Obama has received his first intelligence briefing. Why does this worry me?

A whopping 71% of Obama supporters feel the Constitution shouldn't be upheld and VP nominee Biden stated that an Obama administration might just pursue criminal charges against Bush.

For anyone considering voting for Obama, just check out this video clip of him performing without a teleprompter. Truly frightening.

GOOD NEWS:

Exhibiting a firm grasp of the obvious, Obama finally admitted that the surge was successful.

The Commerce Department reports that productivity jumped 4.3%, a full percentage higher than economists expected. During August, the number of people identifying themselves as Republicans increased 2 percentage points to 33.2%.

Gen. David Petraeus said declining violence in Iraq has raised the possibility that American combat troops could start leaving by next summer. Can you spell 'Mission Accomplished?'

In other historic, overlooked news, Condoleeza Rice met with Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi of Libya, sealing the resumption of ties between the U.S. and a country we once branded as a terrorist outcast. Remember Libya? They're the ones that laid down their arms and started acting halfway civilized right after we went into Iraq. Could there be something to this 'peace through strength' stuff?

CULTURE:

The ACLU is continuing their ongoing fight against the Boy Scouts of America. Plans by the University of Chicago to establish a research institute named after free-market economist Milton Friedman are being met with a protest. 100 tenured faculty signed a petition opposing this privately funded tribute to one of the greatest intellectuals of our time. A classic case of being educated beyond ones' intelligence.

Vanity Fair has named Russian strongman Putin as their most influential and powerful person and a new Russian teaching manual claims that mass murderer Stalin acted 'entirely rationally' in executing and imprisoning millions of people. Also in Russia, for the first time in history, over 100 youngsters stand to inherit more than $1 billion from the country's burgeoning ranks of oligarch. Think Paris Hilton times 10. Those figures could change, as capital has been fleeing Russia ever since they invaded Georgia. So far, $19 billion has left the country.

A British couple is on trial in Dubai for having sex on a public beach. I guess they were under the illusion that all cultures are equal. Scientists have found what they call a 'monogamy gene.' Guess what Boy Clinton is getting for Xmas?

A Florida man was busted by police for violating an ordinance against low-slung pants. No cracks, please.

Jenny, the oldest gorilla in captivity dies in Dallas Zoo at age 55
Australia is in the grip of a 'man drought' where women increasingly outnumber men. An elephant at the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo managed to score 87% on a math test. That's better than most students in our government schools. Think about it.

An estimated 123 people were shot and killed in Chicago over the summer. That's nearly double the number of soldiers killed in Iraq during the same period.

Our military halted the Pakistan offensive for Ramadan and Chavez's Citgo will be granted 250,000 barrels of oil from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve because of Venezuela's inability to secure crude in the aftermath of Hurricane Gustav. Is the US a great country, or what!
IDIOT OF THE WEEK:
This week's winner is Michael Lasiter, 33. He tried to cut off his own arm in a Denny's restaurant in California after becoming convinced that he had injected an air bubble into his veins, along with the crack.

Honorable mention has to go to this Code Pink anarchist at the GOP convention. Check him out doing the taser dance.

ON THE LIGHT SIDE:


In order to keep you smiling, I include this cute video of Piper Palin giving brother Trig a spit bath.
In order to keep you energized, I include this video of an 11 year-old girl field stripping an AR-15 in 15-seconds flat. She sent the video to the cutest boy in 6th grade with a note asking "Do you like me?" Priceless.
