Sing for your Santorum


Gazette staff
Speaking of Rick Santorum — pretend we were just speaking of Santorum — give it up to two sisters from Tulsa who have written and performed a sort of unofficial theme song for the GOP presidential hopeful.

No party for third parties


Gazette staff
We hear a lot about Republicans around here. Sometimes, we even hear about Democrats. Two parties: That covers it, right?

Game Change

Sarah, we hardly knew ye ... which is exactly the point.


Rod Lott
Nearly every scene of the made-for-HBO Game Change, I recall from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's excellent nonfiction book of the same name. But the movie directed by Jay Roach (of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises) tells only half — maybe even just one-quarter — of the story, ignoring the 2008 presidential-campaign narratives of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for the one it finds most compelling: that of Sarah Palin and John McCain, and not the other way around.

Shoot the president? Sinatra aims to do it his way.


Rod Lott
From 1954, Suddenly is the lesser-known of Frank Sinatra’s two films centered on a presidential assassination. Cry “sacrilege” if you wish, but I actually prefer it to the later, more polished, highly revered The Manchurian Candidate. Yes, Suddenly is a B-noir treatment of the same theme, but the underdog proves ridiculously effective.
