Roll over Leni Riefenstahl, there’s a new film in town…
As Salon has reported tonight, there is a hastily made “documentary” in the works called “George W. Bush: The World’s Greatest Cowboy in The Big Picture”.
Seems our good friends over at Citizens United, the right-wing group that unsuccessfully sued to stop national advertising of Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 are trying to pull off the very thing they condemned by creating what appears to be a slobbering kiss to the ass of GW for the first half of the documentary, with the latter half being devoted to slamming Clinton (naturally) & Kerry on such items as thelargely debunked claims of the not-so Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.
Already, questions are being asked about whether or not this latest film is legal, especially since the director is creating two films for the Republican convention.
First and foremost this movie will suck. And in ways that will suck despite your political affiliation. Anything this rushed, hamfisted and based on already debunked claims can’t be a good thing.
It won’t be funny. Say what you will about Moore, but I think most people would at least admit he is a relatively funny guy (cue angry retorts here about how goddamned “funny” he was with BfC). Consequently his films are tempered with some laughs. Given the rushed nature of this film, I doubt they’ll get much laughs in. Angry, hard-core Republicans aren’t the funniest bunch of people you’ll ever meet. See Dennis Miller for example. Better yet, don’t.
Consequently the film will be all the more tedious and insufferable.
It will get released, straight to video, and many a finger will be wagged over the fact that F 9/11 will have more copies to rent than The Worlds Greatest Cowboy at your local Blockbuster- clearly demonstrating that not only the media is controlled by the liberals, but so are the video stores.
