Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt

I made a movie with the BaconBleu brother, Frank and Jake Boudreaux. We made it on the proverbial shoe string, but I think it looks really good! I wrote the initial script, but I gotta confess, you’d never recognize my script in this movie. The story, shall we say, morphed.

Int. dingy screenwriter’s office – dusk

A ceiling fan lazily revolves, throwing intermittent shadows across the SCREENWRITER’s face, as he stares despondently at his computer monitor. The floor around him and every surface are littered with discarded drafts.

SCREENWRITER

I’m still going to make that movie, even if i have to buy a

handicam and hire winos with bottles of ripple.

Have you heard the one about the <insert favorite derided university origin, ethnicity, or what have you> girl who went to Hollywood and slept with the screenwriter? Anyway, I’m proud of the little film. It’s short. Watch for Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt at a multiplex near you! Not really, but we are going to enter it in some film festivals.

The Mittster!

Why are people so surprised that mormons beat jews and italians in giving money to GOP presidential candidates?

I made a $100 wager with the Learned Counselor that the Mittster would win more delegates than Barack Hussein Osama, with a complicated proportional fair definition of “more delegates,” which runs to 15 pages, double-spaced, elite 12 point type. I’ve been a little worried about that bet lately, due to the Richard Harris tunes playing in the background of all MSM coverage of the Infernal Moor. Today, the Learned Counselor wrote to me to propose that he buy the bet back from me! I am playing hardball, however: I glint my eyes a little and growl, “make me an offer.” It is very hard to growl in an email, but, you know, i have worked at it and worked at it.

The same MSM morons who keep alleging that global warming caused Hurricane Katrina are making a lot about the fact that the Mittster trails badly in the polls. Newsflash to the MSM: the Mittster hasn’t started campaigning yet. None of the candidates has really started campaigning yet. The polls, at this point, if they mean anything, are simply a measure of name recognition.

I really don’t expect the Mittster to win the nom in 2008. It is McCain’s turn, and the GOP has been adhering to playground rules for a long time. I daresay the last time the GOP nominated somone out of turn was before World War II, although I guess you could make an argument about Goldwater.

But the Mittster will be a strong candidate for 2012, if the GOP candidate does not win in 2008. And I don’t think he’d have any compunctions about the VP slot, and he would fit nicely with either McCain or Giuliani.   I don’t really know much about Romney, but it is my impression that he is the serious candidate most likely to exercise some fiscal restraint.  McCain and Giuliani are semi RINOs in this regard.
