"The Undefeated" could be considered an interesting title for a film about Sarah Palin, a woman who lost the 2008 presidential campaign as Sen. John McCain's running mate. To filmmaker and Laguna Beach resident Stephen K. Bannon, the title is far from ironic. "The reason I wanted to make it was that I was tired of people on Wall Street and in Washington calling her 'Caribou Barbie'," he said. The documentary, which opened in theaters July 15, follows Palin's entry into the American political landscape - her time as the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, her stint as governor, her designation as the first Republican woman nominated for the vice presidency and her popularity within the tea party movement.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain had to share the national spotlight with a group of Republicans in Costa Mesa on Thursday night as he delivered a speech to accept his party’s nomination. A gathering of party faithful at Gary Monahan’s downtown bar, Skosh Monahan’s, got together to watch the speech and ended up on CNN’s national broadcast for a couple of seconds. The producers of the broadcast cut to a camera sitting in front of the small back room in the restaurant where 50 people spent the evening vociferously cheering for McCain, only to catch the crowd during a rare moment of complete calm.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has asked Gov. Schwarzenegger to veto a fee on cargo containers that pass through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Supporters say the $400 million raised annually by the fee would fund anti-pollution projects. Critics like Palin say it will drive up already high prices for goods in her state and hurt business in California. How did you vote on the bill, and why?   I voted against the bill. It is likely unconstitutional for California to levy a special tax on imports.

Newport Beach City Councilman Keith Curry lambasted opponent Dolores Otting for her stances on development and the city’s debt load while Otting called on city government to be more open and fiscally conservative during a well-attended City Council candidates forum Friday morning at Oasis Senior Center. “We’re in an economic crisis, and I would hope you of all people would understand we need fiscal responsibility and fiscal conservancy,” Otting told the room full of seniors.

Rep. John Campbell’s comments on the nomination of Sarah Palin were very enlightening. Campbell said, “Palin has held elected office longer than Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama and has executive experience Obama doesn’t.” Campbell apparently equates time spent in various offices equally, without any consideration of the nature of the office or the challenges faced there. Campbell served in the California state legislature from 2000 to 2005 and was elected to Congress in a special election in December 2005, giving him fewer than eight years in government.

A recent installment of "In Theory" focused on a project by a Muslim group to build a YMCA-like community center a block from the old World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan. The project's promoters in the Muslim community said they didn't see this as an affront to the families of the victims of the 9/11 attacks, and that this was their way of speaking out for peace and against perceived extremist elements within their religion. On July 18, a message posted on Twitter, which was attributed to Sarah Palin, caused a stir: "Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts.

The words “disapproval of the McCain-Palin ticket” attributed to young women and the photo worded “Women for Obama” struck a chord with my inner self that I did not know I had (“Praised, panned in Costa Mesa,” Oct. 5). I have heard since I was a young boy that there was a sisterhood among all women. What women experienced in life was very different than the good old boys’ world experience. Most women had insight into the pain and glory, that bound them together based on life experience.

There is something grimly hilarious about the level of attention being paid to Sarah Palin. Recently, for example, the Los Angeles Times devoted several columns to the evolution of the wink and the confusing messages it delivers, accompanied by a picture of Palin winking. This throughout the closing days of a political campaign being waged in the midst of an economic crisis that threatens all of our livelihoods and two nagging endless wars, one of which should never have been fought and the other which should have been fought a lot sooner.

Much is being made these days of female leaders on the national stage like Hillary Rodham Clinton, who came a hair away from being the first woman in America to be at the top of a major party ticket, and Sarah Palin, who just became the second woman to be tabbed as a vice-presidential running mate. But here in Newport-Mesa, strong female leaders have been part and parcel of the community’s makeup for decades. Over the past two weeks, two of those female leaders have been lost — former Newport Beach Mayor Jackie Heather and longtime Newport Harbor Spanish teacher Margaret Turner.
