In separate though kindred acts of political and cultural theatre, both Ms. Palin and Mr. West detached aspects of American history from their original contexts and assigned different meanings and significance to them.
Oh, and the Obamacare website sucks and Kim & Kanye got engaged. Whew! It's been quite a week.
Last week, I was sucked into your interview with Ryan Seacrest, in which you blamed "classicism" for your not being able to achieve all of your goals in life. I'm not sure what "classicism" is but if it means "lack of class" I'm on board with your statement.
Why do we fall all over ourselves every time they do something? If media wouldn't pay any attention to them, they would be just another bunch of spoiled celebrities. Remember not so very long ago when they first took baby North West out in public?
So are you smart and up-to-date?! Do you know the answers to these questions? Who's in the World Series? How many members of Congress are there? Who is Kim Kardashian engaged to?

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who agree with Kanye and those who don't. He said it himself in last night's poignant interview with Jimmy Kimmel: "You're going to love me, or you're going to hate me, but I'm going to be me."
Photojournalism is a necessary evil. Celebrities need it to be successful, and society needs it to quench their insatiable thirst for pop culture.
