Juxtaposition of the Week: Pakistan Infant Criminals, Not Bug Splats

not a bug splat.jpegpakistan- infant arrested

Okay, the last two weeks.

Activist media saving Pakistani children from the West meets Western media framing threat to Pakistani children from Pakistan’s touchy government/legal system. (Thoughts welcome, on activist vs. traditional media, the Western lens or what strikes you.)

While many children of his age are still learning how to crawl, a nine-month-old boy in Pakistan has been accused of attempted murder in a case observers say highlights endemic flaws in the country’s legal system. Baby Mohammad Musa along with his father and other family members was booked for throwing rocks at gas company officials in the working-class Ahata Thanedaran neighbourhood on February 1, the family’s lawyer Chaudhry Irfan Sadiq told AFP.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Well, it was hardly avoidable, especially as TV zoomed in closer on the pair. In the background of the Obama - Romney White House pic, the boxing gloves stand out at the not-so-vanishing point like an alarm. It wouldn’t have anything to do with Obama coming out swinging after Nov 7, would it? On the table, by the way, is the white turkey chili that was on the menu. Serving (a) white turkey, get it?? And then another nice touch: in the Today piece there is actually quote from the Majority Leader (and former boxer) about the photo. Reid said he liked it.

RNC2012: Good luck finding many references to Reagan in this years convention. (This sighting is notable for the fact the bust is being presented to The Donald at the convention at a rubber chicken luncheon by a local GOP outfit.) The problem in bringing up Reagan, besides the fact he raised taxes all those times and who needs to further stir up the Tea Party, is that Romney is such a weak figure, he immediately evaporates in comparison.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Every so often, campaign compassion and campaign emotion is interrupted and caused to pale by the deeper and more spontaneous kind.  

The caption:

Stephanie Miller of Sandusky Ohio cries on the shoulder of U.S. President Barack Obama at a campaign event at Washington Park in Sandusky, Ohio July 5, 2012. Miller’s sister died of cancer and said that Obama’s healthcare plan would have given her better treatment options.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Well, Gingrich might as well have the South tattooed on his face.

The what: At last night debate, Newt received a standing ovation as he reiterated his belief that poor kids should work as janitors in response to Juan Williams’ question asking him if he understood that black people felt such employment would be aimed at them. He’s not going much further, everyone knows that, and to make sure, he’s branded himself with racism. The emblem is the Tea Party of South Carolina logo. Newt addressed the group Monday night.
