Kresta in the Afternoon – October 12, 2007 – Hour 1

  • Description:

    First Topic – Girls Gone Mild

    R&B star Beyonce Knowles has axed her debut concert in Malaysia in protest against the nation's ultra-strict dress code and over fears of a Muslim outcry over her show. Wendy Shalit addresses the issue of cultural modesty and takes a stab at getting the women of the Western world to stand up and take notice of their rampant objectification.

    Second Topic – The Evangelical President

    Look at the polls today and you might think President Bush is a failure. The media is relentlessly hostile to him. His party lost both houses of Congress in the 2006 election. And yet, his presidency could be one of the most important in modern times. White House reporter Bill Sammon argues that President Bush took the high road, fighting to spread moral democracy around the world while the low-minded press focused on Vice President Cheney's accidental shooting of a friend. The Evangelical President is the book and it is a glimpse of a president at war, supported by an evangelical belief that tyranny should be overthrown, democracy supported, and America defended.
