Also, both AC/DC and Led Zeppelin is a pretty dated material. How is Ryan supposed to be a new fresh face?

Not that I care about Fox or Ryan 1 single ounce, but you guys seem to be blowing this way out of porportion. You make it sound like he lied about killing hookers and selling blow by the kilo or something. These are no different really then the lies that all the other politicians tell on the campaign trail.
Regardless what side you are on, political hit pieces shouldn't give you a hard on. Take a break and realize none of this is important in the long run. It is not an us vs. them scenario, they are not your enemies.
MSM doing their job every day....you guys letting them do it. You are good consumers.

Hillary Clinton: Chinese human rights secondary to economic survival
Hillary Clinton has told China that the US considers human rights concerns secondary to economic survival.
Mrs Clinton landed in Beijing from South Korea, where she lashed out at the North Korean "tyranny" of its leader Kim Jong-il.
But in contrast she offered a conciliatory hand of friendship to Mr Kim's ally China, contradicting hostile policies both she and President Barack Obama promised during their presidential campaigns last year.
She said she would continue to press China on issues such as human rights and Tibet, but added: "Our pressing on those issues can't interfere on the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crisis."
Democratising Global Governance:
The Challenges of the World Social Forum
This paper sums up the debate that took place during the two round tables organized by UNESCO within the first World Social Forum in Porto Alegre (25/30 January 2001). It starts with a discussion of national processes, by examining democracy and then governance at the national level. It first states a case for a "joint" governance based on a combination of stakeholder theory, which is derived from corporate governance, and of UNESCO's priorities in the field of governance. As an example, the paper investigates how governance can deviate from democracy in the East Asian model. Subsequently, the global dimension of the debate on democracy and governance is examined, first by identification of the characteristics and agents of democracy in the global setting, and then by allusion to the difficulties of transposing governance to the global level.
