After a year’s respite, lipstick-wearing pig returns to USpolitics
By David Alexander (Front Row Washington)
Submitted at 9/9/2009 1:21:02 PM
The lipstick-wearing pig is back,making its annual appearance inthe political discourse of thecountry.The last time it was out andabout, eerily enough, was a yearago Wednesday , tripping fromBarack Obama’s tongue as theU.S. senator campaigned for thepresidency.Republicans don’t know whatreal change is, he told a crowd inLebanon, Virginia.“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,”Obama said. “You can wrap anold fish in a piece of paper called‘change.’ It’s still gonna stink after eight years.”The line prompted people to jump to their feet and cheer —apparently taking it as a directslam at Governor Sarah Palin, thenewly minted Republican vicepresidential candidate.A few days earlier, Palin hadintroduced herself to theRepublican National Conventionas a hockey mom.“You know they say thedifference between a hockey momand a pit bull: Lipstick,” she toldthe convention.Obama’s pig remark riled theRepublican camp and set the tonefor an increasingly nasty WhiteHouse campaign.The pig has mostly been inhiding since then. Now it’s back again, making an anniversaryappearance Wednesday, this timeon the lips of House Minorityleader John Boehner.The target was Obama’shealthcare reform plan, which isin a spot of trouble after a roundof Republican criticism duringCongress’s August recess.Obama will try to revive theplan with a speech to a jointsession of Congress at 8 p.m.“I hope he’s been listening to theAmerican people because I think over the course of August they’veraised their voices loud and clearthat they don’t want this massivegovernment takeover of ourhealthcare system,” Boehner said.“But it appears,” he said, “thatthe president’s going to doubledown tonight and try to putlipstick on this pig and call itsomething else.”So that’s Boehner’s view. Whatdo you think of Obama’shealthcare plan? Lipstick on a pig,or change we can believe in?For more Reuters political, click here.Photo credits: Reuters/KevinLamarque (Obama at a healthcareevent in August); Reuters/Rick Wilking (Women hold up lipstick to greet Palin at a campaign rallySept. 15, 2008)

Venezuela's top anti-drugsofficial has roundly rejectedrecent US criticism that hiscountry is failing to tackleinternational drug trafficking.Col Nestor Reverol's commentscome weeks after a US report saidVenezuela was one of the majordrug transit nations in the WesternHemisphere.He said Venezuela was co-operating internationally in thedrugs fight.The US figures about thequantity of Colombian drugspassing through Venezuela weresimply wrong, he said.Col Reverol, who headsVenezuela's national anti-drugsoffice (ONA), said land and airroutes from Colombia via thePacific were the main source of cocaine traffic to the US, not onesthrough Venezuela."Venezuela doesn't have aPacific coastline," he said.Col Reverol said thegovernment of President HugoChavez had made significantinroads into tackling the drugsupply from Colombia since itended official co-operation withthe US Drug EnforcementAdministration (DEA) some fouryears ago, accusing DEA agentsof spying.He said figures showed thatmore than 44 tonnes of drugs hadbeen seized so far this year.The government had succeededin dismantling 19 cocainefactories in Venezuela, he added.A July report by theGovernment AccountabilityOffice (GAO), which is an arm of the US Congress, said there was a"permissive environment"towards trafficking in Venezuela.The GAO report said corruptionin the Venezuelan governmentand military was allowing thetransport of drugs from Colombiathrough Venezuela to the US toflourish.But Col Reverol said thatVenezuela was co-operating witha wide range of countries.He said that Venezuelamaintained a "working co-operation" with the US which stillhad two DEA agents working outof the US embassy.Col Reverol also rejectedsuggestions that any of his topofficials were involved with druggangs.Print Sponsor
Apple iPod touch (3rd Generation) - PC Magazine

Submitted at 9/10/2009 5:55:21 AM
So, how do you improve themighty iPod touch? Hmm. That'sa question that seems to haveApple stumped. The thirdgeneration of iPod touches looksidentical to the 2nd generationmodels, but the capacities andprices are improved: 8GB ($199),32GB ($299), and 64GB ($399).There's no built-in video camera,as had been rumored, which is abit of a surprise, considering theless-expensive and much-tiniernano got one. With the touch,Apple's focus remains firmly onmusic, and, more so than ever,portable gaming. Along with anice speed bump come some apporganization improvements andnew Genius features, all of whichare welcome additions. Even if there's no exciting surprise withthis touch iteration, after threelong years, there's still not a betterportable media player out there.

Obama, honoring Cronkite, yearns for old stylejournalism

NEW YORK - He called him“Mr. Cronkite” and wished theyhad been friends.But more thananything,President Barack Obama,speaking at Walter Cronkite’smemorial service,honored thestandards the veteran CBSanchorman used as a journalist —andseemed to long for themagain.“We also remember andcelebrate the journalism thatWalter practiced - a standard of honesty and integrity andresponsibility to which so manyof you have committed yourcareers,” Obama told theaudience, which included many of the U.S. media elite.“It’s a standard that’s a little bitharder to find today.”Is it? Has journalism changedfor the better or theworse sinceCronkite’s day?Obama acknowledged thetroubled state many newsorganizations face.“Even as appetites for news andinformation grow, newsrooms areclosing. Despite the big stories of our era, seriousjournalists findthemselves all too often without abeat, ” he said.“Too often, we fill that void withinstant commentary and celebritygossip and the softer stories thatWalter disdained, rather than thehard news and investigative journalism he championed.”Obamasaid Cronkite –knownas “the most trusted man inAmerica” — would have found away to navigate the changingmedia landscape if he were alive.“Would he have been able to cutthrough the murky noise of theblogs and the tweets and thesoundbites to shine the brightlight on substance?” Obamaasked. “Somehow, we know thatthe answer is yes.”What about today’s crop of  journalists? Is substance taking abeating? Let us know what youthink.Photo credit: Reuters/JimYoung (Obama at memorialservice for Cronkite)
