His Way

Election Movies: When Real Life Campaign Drama Isn't Enough

September 11th, 2008 9:30am EDT
Election
Somehow, if you think that the American political system doesn't have enough pageantry or drama, the only possible place for you to turn are the movies. You can find a campaign movie for just about every level of politics. For the most part, they all tell the same story. You have your candidate, and there's an election going on, and from high school to the presidency, there's going to be a debate on using negative campaigning, a starry-eyed speech about sticking to your ethics, and then some sort of sex scandal. Sounds about right.

Election (1999)

It seems that the chance for a pe...

Heckuva Job: Comedy Central's New Satire, 'Lil' Bush,' Takes A Cartoon Look At The President

June 11th, 2007 8:30pm EDT
George Bush
NEW YORK (AP) - Like most political satire, ''Lil' Bush'' pinpoints the logical extreme of real life.

Take its title character. Lil' George Bush is a pushy if none-too-swift lad making mischief with his pals from Beltway Elementary: Lil' Condi, Lil' Cheney and Lil' Rummy (pint-size versions of Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld). Another thing: Lil' George resides in the White House.

Oh, sure, this new Comedy Central cartoon show does take lil' liberties with the truth. For instance, ''Lil' Bush'' is set in the present, yet George H.W. (not George W.) Bush is the na...
