Sharpton v. Fox, round 1

My Way News

Al Sharpton was a little hacked off at Vincente Fox after his comments.
"Fox, a former Coca-Cola executive, angered the U.S. government and civil-rights leaders when he said in a speech 10 days ago that Mexican immigrants do jobs "that not even blacks want to do there in the United States."

So now Sharpton is demanding appologies.

Quick question: I haven't been paying attention to this, but in what context were foxes remarks made?

Buchanan sees 'war' within conservatism

The Washington Times

In an interview with the Washington Times, Pat Buchanan the conservative movement fracturing due to "phonnies" who act like conservatives to reach a level of power.

Sadly, a lot of what he says is right. When you look at the main base of conservatism, you see the the Republican Party. When you see the republican party, what do you see? A bunch of cowering moderates in the senate, a President who is excellent on forign policy(For a lot of people anyways), but weak on spending; who is strong on values in the campaigns, but fails to act strongly durring his term. What you see is a fractured party whose leadership is either not very conservative anymore, (Heck, Delay is the only strong conservative I can think of at the moment), or is no longer being followed due to a fracturing of it's base.

Politics of Star Wars Strike home

Japan Today - News - Lucas jabs at 'Bush's empire'

Interesting article about the new Star wars movie, Revenge of the Sith, having a lot of correlations with the political climate of today.

As a Star Wars nut, I hate to see this happen, but it does happen in a limited amount. For instance, in Labrynth of Evil (by James Luceno) Palpatine(The chancelor who becomes emperor) sends 200,000 troops to attack a "Triad of Evil". Yoda responds by essentially saying they are remote, insignificant, and don't threaten the republic.

Now that all appears to have a liberal view on US politics, were the bad guys are being warmongers, and the good guys are attempting to bring peace. However, in what I took as a reverse in direction, Palpatine requested that the constitution be changed, to allow him to remain in power. His reasoning for doing so is that the constitution is a "Living docutment".

Seems Lucasfilm/books is trying to take stabs on both sides of the isle.
