C of C professor's new book charts Palin's sound, fury
By CHRIS LAMB
Special to Charleston Currents

APRIL 2, 2012 -- Sarah Palin praised GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Monday, March 26, for accusing a New York Times reporter of "bull----" during a campaign stop in Wisconsin over the weekend.


Lamb

"It was good, and it was strong, and it was about time because he's saying enough is enough of the liberal media twisting the conservative words, putting words in his mouth, taking things out of context and even just making things up," Palin said during an interview on Fox News. "So when I heard Rick Santorum's response, I was like well, welcome to my world, Rick, and good on ya."

If there's one thing Palin knows, it's "bull----."

And if there's one thing Palin doesn't know, it's how to speak English -- although she would "refudiate" that. So in the spirit of "refudiation" of what Sarah Palin wants people to believe, I decided to write about what she says. The Sound and Fury of Sarah Palin examines the two worlds of Palin -- the real one in which most of us live and the one in which she's crafted for the media.

In her first speech after becoming John McCain's running mate, Palin demonstrated her opposition to earmarks by claiming to have rejected federal funds for the so-called "Bridge to Nowhere." She said, "I told Congress, 'Thanks, but no thanks,'" But, in fact, she did campaign for funding for the bridge. Palin then claimed that her teleprompter had malfunctioned during her acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention and that she had ad-libbed much of the speech. But, in fact, the TelePrompTer had worked properly, according to reporters at the convention.

While campaigning for vice president, she didn't know the duties of the vice president. When a third grader asked her what the vice president did, she said, "They're in charge of the U.S. Senate." To Palin's credit, this was more an example of ignorance and stupidity than outright lying.

FROM THE BOOK:
WHAT SOME CONSERVATIVES HAVE SAID ABOUT SARAH PALIN

“Even at McDonald’s you're interviewed three times before you're given the job.”

–President Ronald Reagan’s chief of staff Ken Duberstein on the vetting of Palin.

“She is the biggest joke to be put on a ticket in national politics.”

–Journalist and blogger Andrew Sullivan.

“She makes George W. Bush sound like Cicero.”

–Columnist and Beliefnet.com blogger Rod Dreher.

“I’m still proud of Sarah, but she scares the bejeebers out of me.”

–Wasilla, Alaska, city council member and Palin’s first campaign manager Laura Chase.

While campaigning for vice president, she repeatedly said that then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama "palled" around terrorists, which wasn't true. But it is true that Palin was a vocal supporter of the Alaska Independence Party, which called for the state to secede from the United States.

In addition, Palin's charges that Obama was a socialist who would "experiment" with socialism also were baseless. But did you realize that when Palin ran for vice president, she was governor of Alaska, where only 1 percent of the state's land is in private hands? In Alaska, Palin said, the people "collectively . . . own the resources. So we share in the wealth when the development of these resources occurs."

Palin said she campaigned to end earmarks as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, and then as governor of the state, but she enthusiastically secured millions of dollars in earmarks. She talked about the need for America to spend within its means while she spent more than $150,000 on the clothes she wore while campaigning.

Palin's claim that an Alaska ethics probe cleared her of wrongdoing was untrue. So was her claim that the Obama's health care legislation included "death panels."

Palin's obsession with Obama's use of teleprompters obscures the fact that she relies on TelePrompTers even when answering friendly questions on Fox News and needed to write notes on her hand to answer pre-screened questions at a Tea Party rally.

Palin regularly compares herself with President Ronald Reagan but appeared to know little about his life and career. After hearing Palin compare herself to Reagan, Peggy Noonan, Reagan's speechwriter and confidante, responded, "Excuse me, but this was even ignorant for Ms. Palin. The point is not, 'He was a great man and you are a nincompoop,' though this is true."

Within weeks of Palin becoming McCain's running mate, most conservative columnists and commentators had heard enough.

"If B.S. were currency," Pulitzer Prize-winning conservative columnist Kathleen Parker said, "Palin could bail out Wall Street herself."

Is story on giveaway dog really news?
By ANDY BRACK, publisher

APRIL 2, 2012 -- When the stories came out last week about the family that gave up its black labrador to a shelter, I sent a letter to The Post and Courier, which it promptly didn't print. Here it is in full:

"If I wanted to read the National Enquirer, I'd buy it. I don't expect The Post and Courier to publish an above-the-fold, front-page story about what somebody wrote in an e-mail to somebody else about a dog rescue. I mean, really? This is what you've got as 'news?'

"There are far more important things going on in South Carolina. Why not write more about the pitiful state of education in South Carolina? Or the lily-livered legislature that abrogates its constitutional responsibilities? You can do better than this kind of needless sensationalism."

* * * * *

Back in the mid-1940s, Time publisher Henry Luce asked Robert M. Hutchins, a respected educational philosopher, former Yale law dean and chancellor of the University of Chicago, to head a special commission to look into the duty of the free press in a democracy.


Brack

By 1947, the Commission of Freedom of the Press published a major document that essentially said the media have a social responsibility to publish information to help people make better decisions in their democracy. This "theory of social responsibility" in the press served as the foundation of my master's degree thesis in 1988 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

If you take for granted that the media have a responsibility to provide helpful information to news consumers and not Pablum, then you have to wonder whether a story about Ozzy, an 87-pound dog with heartworms, is really the biggest story of the day in the Lowcountry. Please realize, I'm not arguing the paper shouldn't have offered the story. But on the front-page, followed the next day by a sanctimonious second-day front-page story (bottom of the page) about how the first story generated a lot of potential homes for the dog? Of course it did.

Publishing news about giveaway dogs, crimes and sporting events is "easy news" in that it doesn't take much gumption or digging to develop these stories. Writers can talk to one or two people and pound out stories like this any day of the week. They can stop by police stations, look at public reports, take down a few details, interview a detective and grind out pieces, day in and day out. Or they can just show up at a game, watch, take some notes, talk to a coach and file what happened.

In other words, it's not that hard. But what is hard is to give a better perspective to communities about what's really going on through consistent deeper reporting. In The Post and Courier, you'll see this kind of reporting every Sunday in its weekly "big news package" about some local or state issue. The rest of the week: Not so much.

If newspapers continue down the path of just publishing the easy-to-get news without adding a dash of social responsibility and a pinch of more perspective, they will continue to lose more readership and succumb to electronic media that is blossoming to fill voids left what newspapers should be doing.

The most recent issue of Statehouse Report offers a commentary on how a just-passed House school voucher bill defies logic. Seems that the bill would offer tax deductions of up to $4,000 for people who have kids in private school. The hitch? Half of South Carolinians don't pay enough in taxes to qualify, due to their low income or that they already have enough deductions. You think somebody might be trying to pull the wool over our eyes.

Wando student wins trip to Turkey

Wando High School senior Devan R. Walsh won a trip to Turkey this summer after placing first in an art contest offered by the South Carolina Dialogue Foundation. Walsh also won the top high school art award for five states in the Southeast.


Walsh with her project

In the foundation's second annual Art and Essay contest, it sought admissions focusing on the theme, "1 billion hungry in the world -- What is your role?" Some 570 middle and high school students submitted art or essays. The foundation made 47 awards, ranging from gift cards to Kindles, iPads and the Turkey trip, to South Carolina students. More.

Not only will Walsh get a trip to Turkey from the contest, but the foundation also offers a trip for her teacher, Mary Catherine Middleton, and the school district superintendent. Walsh will pick up her top Southeast honor on Saturday in Atlanta. More.

C of C to offer mental health program

College of Charleston's Peer Counseling will host its third annual Mental Health Monologues program entitled "Even Your Brain Deserves a Check Up" on April 12. The event will be held in the Sottile Theatre starting at 7 p.m.

Originally performed in 2008 at Stanford University by a campus organization created to foster progressive social change through the use of theatre, Mental Health Monologues have become increasingly more prevalent on college campuses. At the College of Charleston, the group hopes to raise awareness about college students' struggles with mental health issues and to erase the stigma associated with seeking help.

Many people struggling with mental health concerns face discrimination and isolation from those around them. This event provides a safe environment for the some of those stories to be heard. Tickets are free with a College of Charleston student ID and $10.00 for non-students. More.

Fish camps

While the term designates a campsite ideal for anglers throughout much of the Palmetto State, “fish camp” for upstate South Carolinians refers to a family-style seafood restaurant serving reasonably priced dinners to a local clientele. Fish camps differ from the calabash restaurants of the coast in that they serve both salt- and freshwater seafood, and from more upscale seafood restaurants in their prices and decor, which frequently consists of uncovered wooden tables, ladder-back chairs, and walls decorated with taxidermic fish.

With strong ties to the tradition of community fish fries, the restaurants prepare fish (usually flounder and catfish) deep-fried in a cornmeal-based coating. Menus are augmented with additional offerings such as deviled crab, shrimp, and oysters, and all come with hush puppies, fries, and coleslaw on the side. A few fish camps, such as Old MacDonald’s in North Augusta, offer a lowcountry boil or a side of grits, an apparent nod to Lowcountry culinary traditions.

Generally, fish camps are located near rivers or lakes, such as the Little River Fish Camp in Saluda and the Lake Wylie Fish Camp in York County. The earliest were established along the Catawba River in South and North Carolina in the 1930s and 1940s and began as sheds where anglers could fry their fresh catches. And while most restaurants purchase their fish from seafood wholesalers and farms, fish camps continue to be found along waterways.

Catering to a loyal, local clientele, many fish camps serve as gathering places, hosting local club meetings and family celebrations and providing many patrons with a regular opportunity to gossip, talk politics, and discuss current events. Politicians have apparently recognized the importance of these restaurants to their constituents and regularly make formal or informal visits.

During the 2000 election, the Catawba Fish Camp in Fort Lawn was a key campaign stop for then-candidate George W. Bush, and in 2002 the same fish camp hosted a campaign rally for Democratic governor Jim Hodges. Other popular fish camps include Tall Tales and Wagon Wheel in Cowpens, the Roebuck and Pioneer restaurants of Spartanburg County, Bailey’s in Blacksburg, and Wateree in Pageland.

Not a canvas


This looks like an abstract piece painted on canvas that you'd see in the East Wing of the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., when it is, in fact, just down the street in Sculpture Garden. Contributing photographer Michael Kaynard snapped the sculpture, entitled "Moon Dog," shooting from the ground looking to deep, blue sky. Nice shot, Michael.
