pWASHINGTON — Located less than a block from K Street, the aptly-named Lincoln Restaurant will host more than 30 Republican lawmakers and scores of the city’s best known GOP lobbyists on Wednesday night at a fundraiser for Mitt Romney.

By Leonard Maltin I understand why millions of people go gaga over the new Twilight movie or Toy Story 3 , but some of the best and brightest filmmaking doesn’t come from the mainstream–and sad to say, most Americans ignore outstanding independent and foreign films right under their noses. Even smart people I know have gotten lazy about seeing these films when they open in theaters, waiting for them to turn up on cable, pay-per-view, or DVD.

On Thursday, when the time came for independent counsel Timothy Petumenos to give former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin her comeuppance for putting private fund-raising above the public trust, he picked as the venue the “Adventure Room” of the Hotel Captain in Cook in downtown Anchorage. The symbolism was almost as thick as the media that crowded the smallish space in the basement of one of the city’s long time cornerstones. The hotel was built by Wally Hickel after the Good Friday earthquake in 1964 destroyed much of Alaska.

BAGHDAD — The Iranian ambassador in Baghdad said the recent release of two Iranians from Iraqi custody is not an indication of any impending deal to free three Americans held by Tehran on spying charges. Ambassador Hassan Kazemi Qomi told The Associated Press the fate of the Americans, who have been held since July, is in the hands of the Iranian judiciary and has no connection to the release of two Iranians earlier this month. “There were no deals,” Qomi said.

Over the last several days the reviews for Sex and the City 2 have been rolling in, and not surprisingly they have been scathing with a side of mean. I stopped reading them when I saw the word “leathery” describe the women’s skin. I actually think that people really get off on beating up on this film, and I can’t decide whether it’s because a gay man has made a pretty gay film that is for women, or because the film is for and about women that’s going to make a ton of money and no one gives a shit if a single straight guy goes and sees it.

The long-awaited Sex and the City sequel was filled with laughter as Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) reunited for their first vacation since Carrie’s ill-fated Mexican Honeymoon two-years earlier. The film opens up with a monologue by Carrie as she reflects on how she met her three best girlfriends in the days of Studio 54 - B.C. (Before Carrie). It was both charming and humorous.

Amidst all the hype of the premiere of Sex and the City 2 less than a week away, there’s a lot of chatter. Parties, contests, promos at Macy’s. Last night, I even caught a Food Network Cake Challenge where four female cake decorators had to design a Sex And The City themed cake. It’s the type of publicity the Samantha Jones’ of the world dream of! I got to thinking. Don’t we all have a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda or Charlotte in our lives? Some of us might have more than one, especially if you live in New York. A stylish, bohemian writer?

I am the Afghanistan Blogging Fellow for The Seminal and Brave New Foundation. You can read my work on The Seminal or at Rethink Afghanistan . The views expressed below are my own. As the US gears up for its inevitably bloody assault on Kandahar , the plans have hit a bit of a snag.
