Rove's Biggest Blunder

The more I think about it, the more I think this Bush movie will be the best thing that ever happened to the Democrats. Timothy Bottoms is going to be hilarious whether he intends to or not - the dialogue as reported will inspire a national gigglefest. And, if he's truly that heroic and articulate, the contrast with reality will make it brilliant parody. But, more importantly nothing could provide a greater catalyst for the asking of serious questions about the events of September 11th, with the fictional version providing a useful comparison point. The explicit involvement of Bush administration might even wake our slumbering media to take a closer look.
