    One battle ends, another begins. His job done, President Bush will abandon the major press spotlight in 10 days. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's match in the media arena has just begun; journalists and pundits continue to bash her, and the Gov. has struck back in a new video. Link mentions Susan B. Anthony List.

    Those who have been closely following the politics of the Democratic primaries may have noticed that someone is missing -- and I'm not referring to Bob Shrum, the Rev. Al Sharpton or an as-yet-undiscovered "Gravel Girl." I'm talking about the white male voter, or at least a certain long-coveted variety thereof. He is variously known as "NASCAR dad" -- that shirt-sleeved, straight-talkin', these-colors-don't-run fella who votes his cultural values above all else -- or "Bubba," as Steve Jarding and Dave "Mudcat" Saunders affectionately call him in their book, "Foxes in the Henhouse." Start looking on milk cartons for Bubba because...

    Do you want a surefire recipe to lose the Iraq war? It's easy, really. Just allow the Pentagon to move forward with plans to court martial Lt. Col. Allen B. West. The day that happens is the day U.S. popular support for this war goes south. The day that happens is the day our fighting men realize this war – like Vietnam – is going to be micromanaged by the politicians in Washington who know little or nothing about the split-second judgments that need to be made when you're under fire.

    Actor-director Vincent Gallo has denied apologising for his derided road movie The Brown Bunny - and dismissed US film critic Roger Ebert as a "fat pig" for saying that he did. On its recent unveiling at the Cannes Film Festival, where it was a contender for the Palme d'Or, Gallo's film was greeted by hoots of derision. The Brown Bunny stars Gallo as a brooding biker on a cross-country odyssey through the US, who finds himself haunted by memories of an ex-girlfriend (Chloe Sevigny). Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw labelled it "the most hysterical event in Cannes history", and said...
