Pop, politics and power couples
Everyone heard about these, some sooner than later, but they all raised a question, an eyebrow or a high five.

Saddam Hussein’s capture was shown worldwide and has to be one of America’s (if not Bush’s) best moments. Does it make up for Arnold Schwarzenegger becoming governor of California? That’s debatable. There’s something unsettling about watching movies with a governor as the killing machine. Michael Jackson is in a dilemma he seems to have been in before. Heavens, no means no! I guess some things just take longer to sink in. Perhaps it takes jail time for some people. The Dixie Chicks shocked true Texans everywhere in March when they said they were ashamed that President Bush was from Texas. Ouch! And who could forget the Ben and Jen “wedding” that never quite happened. Can we say publicity stunt?
