Tom Tancredo Drops Out, Backs Romney -- Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo dropped out of the race for the Republican Party’s nomination for president yesterday. Judging from the polls, most Americans never knew he was in it. He decided that resisting the inevitable would only harm his nation and his party, and therefore, he quit, throwing his rather insignificant electoral weight behind Governor Mitt Romney. However, he was not irrelevant to the race because he was the hardliner on immigration

ANC Picks Zuma to Lead, Legal Troubles Continue -- At a meeting of the African National Congress on Tuesday, Jacob Zuma was elected leader, defeating current South African President Thabo Mbeki. Mr. Zuma is now frontrunner for the next presidential election two years hence. He has promised to be a more populist leader, more interventionist and more concerned with those blacks left behind after the fall of apartheid. The trouble with Mr. Zuma isn’t so much the message as the messenger. The man has significant legal troubles.

US Approves Google’s DoubleClick Purchase, EU Still Reviewing -- The American Federal Trade Commission voted 4-1 yesterday to allow Google to proceed with its $3.1 billion bid for advertising rival DoubleClick. The FTC said “because the evidence did not support the theories of potential competitive harm, there was no basis on which to seek to impose conditions on this merger.” The European Union isn’t so sure, and it may not act one way or the other until April 2, 2008. One must, in the interests of fairness, remind readers that the Kensington Review uses Google to generate its ads.

US Writers’ Strike Hits London Theatre -- This week, most of the late night line up of TV shows announced they would be back in production in early January, without the striking writers if need be. Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O’Brien are going back to work because their non-writing workers are suffering. So who’s going to bail out the London Theatres that, believe it or not, are having trouble because the Writers’ Guild of America has downed pencils?
