The Manchurian Candidate

I've said it before, I'll say it again - once. Do not go to see The Manchurian Candidate! If you've seen the trailer, you've basically seen it all - he'll be shot. For once, I agree with a film critique of BaZ: It's boring, despite of the political parallels ("They want to plant a sleeper in the White House!").

Much better have today's Bushism: "I think it's important for those of us in a position of responsibility to be firm in sharing our experiences, to understand that the babies out of wedlock is a very difficult chore for mom and baby alike. ... I believe we ought to say there is a different alternative than the culture that is proposed by people like Miss Wolf in society. ... And, you know, hopefully, condoms will work, but it hasn't worked." - Meet the Press, Nov. 21, 1999
