Political bullets: hurray for Hollywood!
I love old movies. Even the bad ones have something to offer. Whether it’s the photography, writing, or a brief insight to the popular thoughts of the given period there is always something to think about.
Some classic movies wear better with time than others. Some actually become more relevant in retrospect. Here are some movies that political life seems to imitate in this cycle:
The Missiles of October: Both Newt and Mitt promise to conquer Cuba while talking to Florida Latinos, can somebody tell the historian and the international money mover that Latinos under 50 years old know that the cold war is over?
Boys in the Band: State of the Union Speech watchers wondered why Sec. Clinton looked so sleepy that night then found out that the U.S. scored another strategic strike victory and only slapped Panetta on the back….boys will be boys.
Love Story: Meet the Press moderator David Gregory slips and praises Mitt for not “apologizing for his success” Tuesday night, being a powerful network pundit means never having to say you’re sorry.
