    Oliver Stone certainly isn’t known for pulling any punches. Remember Natural Born Killers, or JFK? In a recent interview with W magazine Josh Brolin who plays G Dub, details a conversation he had with Stone: “The thing I kept saying to Oliver was, ‘It’s a comedy, it’s a comedy, it’s a comedy,’ even though it’s not.” “I’d call it, if anything, something mixed between serious and baffoonish—a form of farce,” says Stone. Hey kind of like Bush’s presidency! Kevin West author of the article offers that: “The script reads as a relentless and sometimes outrageous drama of an administration in love with neocon ideology and arrogantly dismissive of facts.” Judging from the trailer there will be great substance abuse scenes in the film, maybe even a keg stand or two. If I were Oliver I would have taken the scene in Pulp Fiction where Uma Thurman snorts heroin and has to have a needle full of adrenaline stabbed into her heart and just superimposed Bush’s chimpanzee-like face over it, probably not too far from actual events. It will be impossible for Stone to cover all of Bush’s amazing achievements in two hours, I mean his life has been like the time my poodle ate a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos and proceeded to diarrhea bright red poo-goo all over my white carpet, bed, closet, bathroom, kitchen, other closet, and slippers.

    I imagine that George W. Bush is looking forward to nothing more than January rolling around and being able to leave for his ranch so he can get back to these kinds of activities. He already seemed to have a pretty bad case of “senioritis” while dancing on the White House porch for reporters, but this economic crisis has to be the final straw. W. didn’t sing up for this kind of crap! He signed up to start wars and subvert our constitution!

    It’s at the point where I wouldn’t doubt Bush has one of those novelty “Countdown until Bush leaves the White House” daily calendars on his desk in the Oval Office. Based on his stammering on tv the other night I think he is looking forward to it just as much as we are. Imagine the kind of Bender W. is gonna go on when he gets back to Texas and realizes he never got impeached for all the crap he pulled. Yee-Haw!

    Not as out-and-out ribald and gutbusting or perhaps even as daring as the scene of Dubya getting high with Harold and Kumar in their Guantanamo adventures, but I like their razor and coke lines flag design. I’d rent the H&K Escape from Guantanamo DVD just for those scenes of Herr Bush getting blunt with the fellas in his South Texas bunker.
    As for Stone’s version of our lame duck prez, it looks more like a high-end version of Born on the Fourth of July: same garishly faded colors, same texture, maybe even a story line that’s very much along the same lines too. Really. It looks like he redid the Ron Kovic story only starring Josh Brolin as Bush. Strange.

    Хм, как я вижу у Вас сбирается достаточно элитарное общество в плане специалистов своего дела. Странно, конечно, бывает видеть среди профи откровеных диллетантов, но я отношусь к ним с “надеждой” что-ли. В том плане, что они когда-то выучаться и смогут помогать людям. Сложно правда бывает иногда отделить комментарий и совет профи от дилетантского, в том плане, что и те, и те пишут так сказать на отмашь, т.е. пару слов. Еще зайду..
