Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:
An analysis of federal records shows that the amount of money contributed during this election cycle by journalists favors Democrats over Republicans by a margin of 15 to one.
Inves tor's Business Daily reports 235 journalists have donated more than $225,000 to Democrats and just 20 journalists have given around $16,000 to Republicans.
An even greater disparity — 20 to one — exists between the number of journalists who have donated to Barack Obama over John McCain.
Individuals who are employed by major media organizations have given more than $315,000 to Democrats and about $23,000 to Republicans.
Mutiny on the Bounty
The Auckland University Students' Association has retracted its offer of a $5,000 reward for any student who makes a citizen's arrest of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during her visit to New Zealand this weekend.
We reported Thursday that the student body president said the arrest would be for Secretary Rice's role in overseeing what he called the illegal invasion and continued occupation of Iraq.
He offered the reward to students to "make a dent in their student loans."
But a New Zealand newspaper reports the Auckland police district commander got wind of the news, saying, "I would strongly advise the association representatives who've put this challenge out — to withdraw it immediately."
And while he is no longer offering any money, Auckland University's student president says he still supports any student who tries to arrest Secretary Rice.
Hamas television is at it again. This time, a children's program on the Islamic TV station is using a Bugs Bunny look-alike who vows to "kill and eat Jews".
The Daily Telegraph newspaper reports Assud the Rabbit appears on the Palestinian kids show "Tomorrow's Pioneers." Viewers can even vote whether Assud should have his hands chopped off when he breaches Sharia law.
The show debuted last year and originally featured a Mickey Mouse look-alike named Farfur, who urged children to fight against the Jewish community. Farfur was followed by Nahoul the Bee, who also preached hatred for Israel. Nahoul was martyred earlier this year and replaced by Assud the Rabbit.
What's In a Name?
A family court judge in New Zealand has had a nine-year-old girl declared a ward of the court so she could be given a new name. Her birth name was Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii.
The girl was involved in a custody battle, and her lawyer says she was so embarrassed by her name that she would not even tell her closest friends what it was — instead asking them to call her "K." Her new name has not been released.
Judge Rob Murfitt wrote in his opinion, "The court is profoundly concerned about the very poor judgment which this child's parents have shown in choosing this name. It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap."
The judge went on to say that New Zealand registration officials have had to block some other bizarre names including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit.
