MOVIE PREVIEW....I just got an email telling me that coming soon to a theater near you is Bush's Brain, which promises to "unmask Karl Rove, the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain...the man who has single-handedly masterminded George Bush's entire political career and is responsible for his rapid ascent to Presidential power."

In another email earlier today, I learned that Going Upriver: The Long War of John Kerry (which, rather amusingly, is directed by George Butler, who also directed the Arnold Schwarzenegger biopic Pumping Iron) will be released on October 1. By my count, that makes three separate movies this campaign season that are either pro-Kerry or anti-Bush:

Plus two more that, while not specifically anti-Bush, are certainly unsympathetic to the conservative cause:

Have liberals finally figured out an effective way to fight back against talk radio?

UPDATE: And there's more!

I don't know for sure how overtly political every one of these movies is, but I think it's safe to say that none of them do George Bush any favors.
