Opinions: Barack Obama is better than you

OGINO: Senator Barack Obama isn't just an elitist, he's "1337."

For those of you who don't TiVo "Anderson Cooper," Barack Obama made a speech at a San Francisco fundraiser that Hillary Clinton suggests is "elitist." In it, he suggests that people cling to guns, religion and anti-immigrant views because they are bitter about their economic status.

People are accusing Barack Obama of being out of touch. Who has he lost touch with? The gun-toting, bible-thumping bigot vote? Why is the fact that he condemns gun nuts relevant? He didn't have their vote to begin with. And according to a Pew Research Center poll, only a little over half of Americans believe that he is Christian (one in 10 believe he's Muslim). It's pretty clear who's ignorant in that equation.

Opinions: Onward and upward

SHOPE: It's somewhat peculiar for people my age to talk about the end of an era or the end of a chapter in their lives. But, in reality, what I experienced over the weekend really was.

For the last five years of my college life, I've been a member of the College Republicans, and this past year I served as the chairman of the statewide organization of College Republicans.

On Saturday, when I was down in that little city to the south that is home to that little insignificant university, I spent an excellent day with Mike Sistak, my College Republican co-Chairman and best friend. State Senate President Tim Bee, who Mike works for, is a candidate for the U.S. Congress in Congressional District 8 and was traveling around Tucson with a man whom I consider to be brilliant, Steve Forbes.

Opinions: Letters to the editor

Beauty and the uggo

Flipping through magazines, one can't help but wonder why some gorgeous women chose, ahem, less-than-gorgeous men as partners. A new study has the answer.

'The Visitor' a strong tale of friendship
Currently, the country appears caught in a malaise between enforcing illegal-immigration laws and carrying them out in a fair way.

'Stripper Zombies' a deadly disaster
Sometimes it takes more than lots of gore and naked women to make a movie worth watching. With a statement like that, it seems like I need to preface the rest of this review by saying that I generally enjoy films that contain little more than these two things. Read my reviews of "Grindhouse" and "Diary of the Dead" for proof.
