Awesome Beyond Words: An American Carol
August 14, 2008
David Weigel, who has long been one of this blog's libertarian pals, fills us in on a movie that is going to kick your ass so hard that your ass will end up thinking it's your face. Does that not make sense? Too bad! Get a load of An American Carol:
I'm holding a palm card that was just given out at the Heritage Foundation to promote the new David Zucker film An American Carol. If I fill out the card, I can take one of four pledges, such as "Yes, I will send the trailer to my contacts" and "Yes, I want to be AN AMERICAN CAROLER or THEATER CAPTAIN." It's an induction to a movement, as the slogan on the card makes clear: "Finally, a movie for us."
In it, filmmaker Michael Malone (Kevin "brother of Chris" Farley) and his organization MoveAlong.org are trying to repeal the Fourth of July when three angels -- the Angel of Death, George S. Patton, and George Washington -- come to him and convince him to change his ways.(The wingnut awesomeness continues after the flip)
