WHY YOU CAN'T ALWAYS COUNT ON POP CULTURE TO MAKE YOUR POLITICAL POINTS FOR YOU – So I read on Roy Edroso's site that one of the regulars at NRO's The Corner is please to see Kiefer Sutherland get acknowledged by SAG for his work on 24 because it suggests Hollywood might be "finally catching up on the war on terror." And I watch tonight's ep and see that one of this season's villains – indeed, the man responsible for the death of stalwart President Palmer – turns out to be a neocon prsidential adviser who wants to fabricate a war with oil rich Asian countries by shipping nerve case to that region and making it look as if they have Weapons of Mass Destruction. Hey, Cornerites, are you sure you wanna hang your political power points on this twisty piece of teevee pulp?
