Oh, Goodie!

Oliver Stone's new comedy bio-pic "W" will premier on October 17, just in time to remind voters what the GOP foisted off on us eight years ago.
Methinks this movie will be like, "Mommie Dearest" and provide us with catch phrases we can use till the end of time, such as,"You're a bush! Act like one!"
(mission accomplished)
I'm a little disappointed with the casting. I would have cast Will Farrell as Bush, and instead of Ellen Burstyn as old Barbara Bush, I would have fattened up Bea Arthur. Too bad Charles Nelson Reilly and Paul Lynde are dead--either would have made a great George H.W. Bush.
Still, I'm sure I can live with a campy, albeit miscast version of the life of history's greatest sociopathic wastrel.
Check it out and tell me what you think:

Today on "The View" Elisabeth Hasslehoff or whatever her name is said the movie was obviously an anti Bush tirade that she planned to avoid seeing.
Whoopie Goldberg jumped on her about judging it before seeing it.
It's called "contempt prior to investigation: and it's the cornerstone of these neo-con idiots who are quick to quote scripture, except for parts like "Judge not, lest ye not be judged."
I've heard her moronic opinions for years now, so I can accurately judge her.
She's a stupid asshole.

I've judged it too, based on the trailer (and Oliver Stone), and I WON'T MISS IT FOR THE WORLD! This movie gives me a reason to live (Mwaha ha ha). Thanks, I didn't know this was in the works.

I had heard it was in the works, but I'd lost track of it and had no idea when it was hitting the theaters.
One more good reason to rush through this hot Texas summer and look forward to October.

Wait. Bush was a talentless, vindictive, drunken jerkoff who only succeeded in life because pop and his rich connections bailed his ass out? Right. Good one, Stone.

Bush Sr. yelling at Jr., "Your a Bush, act like one!"

Drunken Jr., "I AM!"

Think I'll pass. The eight years we've endured of his redistributing the tax revenue of folks like us to his cronies is plenty in itself.

I can only hope that the whole Bush clan is deeply offended, but that doesn't mean I gotta go.

karenzipdrive said...

Too bad his last name is bush. I wish it was something like Dick.
"You're a Dick! Act like one!"

i hear the wire hanger scene is not to be missed.....

"George, bring me the ax"

but the best part will be hearing all the bushies trashing the movie, saying they wont see it when we ALL know they will have seen it

Wouldn't it have been cool if Whoopie Goldberg would've played Condi?

My major beef with the movie is that they got attractive people to play all these warthogs. W's gonna watch it and LIKE it. Bet you.

Say, John Perkins (Confessions of an Economic Hitman) put a story in his second book about how there was a "gentleman's resort" on an island off the coast of Panama. Noriega had the place wired and thus had many photos of W, then the presidents son, doing blow off hookers tits etc, or whatever else they consider a Spa Day. Perkins posits that the reason we invaded Panama was to remove the blackmail fodder.

I don't believe it but I love the story.

Hey, is this a comment or my own blog? Whoopsie.

You are sooo dead-on regarding Elizabeth Hasselhoff. She's a stupid twat (did i just say that? yeah!). Props on the trailer! Tho I agree with the miscasting, I luv me some Josh Brolin . . . BUT NOT AS W!!!! Take me back to No Country anyday . . . though, W has certainly destroyed us into a 'no country' of sorts.

Woo Hoo for your bloggy wonderfulness!!!

karenzipdrive said...

Forget Whoopie playing Condi--I thought it was a perfect beginner role for Omarosa!

Mike said...

i stopped gettin' all hot and bothered about elizabeth h. when i realized what an idiot she was...

anyhow - note to self: must visit your site more regularly - this is an election year damnit

Hell yes, Chimpy's gonna watch this movie, laugh his stupid ass off, and say "Dammit, those were the fuckin' DAYS! Ah cain't wait to find that ol' bar from the movie and get back to mah constantly refilled glass o' Jack!"

You probably remember that Will Ferrell played Bob Woodward in "Dick," which is a pretty funny Kirsten Dunst movir with Dan Hedaya as Nixon. Bush is mediocre to the nth- the banality of evil written as large as crayons can take it. That's fine for "9/11" Stone, who's really without. He made Cameron Diaz almost boring. Hope it turns out to be, intentionally or not, a hatchet job on Bushco. Probably will skip over Bush making much of McCain's Bangaladeshi adopted daughter, maybe allowing McC to "run against " Bush. Gosh, Stone fucking blows.

Love the story from Jess and intend to pass it along as gospel. One of those "How could you not know about the Bush in Panama scandal?"

As for the movie, except for the Josh Brolin mistake, I think its going to be a great movie and very timely.
