BUSH DECLARES WAR ON POP CULTURE!
This just in from Low Culture:
From President Bush's speech in Turkey on June 29th, in which he defended democratic ideals:
"In some parts of the world, especially in the Middle East, there is wariness toward democracy, often based on misunderstanding. Some people in Muslim cultures identify democracy with the worst of Western popular culture, and want no part of it. And I assure them, when I speak about the blessings of liberty, coarse videos and crass commercialism are not what I have in mind. There is nothing incompatible between democratic values and high standards of decency."
You hear that, Hollywood? Run for the Hills! Beverly, that is.
