Still lovin’ Bush
A small but piquant cultural moment from the Virginia countryside:
President Bush still has got some backup among those who hanker to fire up their pick-um-up trucks and warm up their yeehaws.
An attendee at a jam-packed Brooks & Dunn/Alan Jackson country music extravaganza on Sunday evening at Nissan Pavilion called yesterday to report that the crowd went crazy when Mr. Bush’s photograph appeared on the JumboTron screens during a patriotic montage of images.
“They hollered for all they were worth. W’s still got fans out there who definitely are not from inside the Beltway,” the attendee said.
Republicans are more likely to reject evolution, according to a Gallup poll released yesterday. It revealed that 68 percent of the Republican respondents do not believe in the theory, compared with 40 percent of Democrats and 48 percent of the overall public.
“Belief in evolution has been injected into the political debate already this year, with much attention given to the fact three Republican presidential candidates — Sam Brownback, Mike Huckabee and Tom Tancredo — indicated in response to a question during the May 3 debate that they did not believe in the theory of evolution, although they have attempted to clarify their positions in the weeks since,” said Gallup pollster Frank Newport.
“It is apparent that many Americans simply do not like the idea that humans evolved from lower forms of life,” he continued, also noting, “Being religious in America today is strongly related to partisanship, with more religious Americans in general much more likely to be Republicans than to be independents or Democrats.”
The survey of 1,007 adults was conducted June 1-3, 2007, with a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
Where we won’t be
Maybe Ed Gillespie and Ken Mehlman might want to go, just for laughs. Or a martini, anyway.
“More than 500 of Washington’s young, progressive professionals are expected to attend the first, public fundraising event for the New Organizing Institute. The nonprofit organization runs the only campaign-training program in the country focusing on cutting-edge political technology and Internet organizing,” proclaims the group, which will assemble at the Connecticut Avenue club MCCXXIII in the District tonight.
“There is a whole new national wave of political professionals on the left who are moving up,” said director Rosalyn Lemieux, who adds that “technology-enabled political organizers” can fulfill “an urgent need in progressive politics.”
