It’s Midterms, people, and though I am not as frenzied as I was for the ’08 POTUS race, I have fears.

Not for me personally as I live in the Canadian Utopia, but for all of you, who should be planning your exit strategies if things go drastically to the right because 2012 is the year the Mayans decided to end their calendar with – just saying.

As I imagine the airways are polluted with negative ads and phones are bombarded with robo-calls, perhaps a good movie is in order. Fave political movies?

Let’s see. This is what Time Magazine thinks:

I’ve seen Bob Roberts, The Candidate, Citizen Kane And Primary Colors. The last is probably my favorite Travolta role ever and the saddest, most apt commentary on the enigma that is Bill Clinton ever.

But I loved Kevin Kline in Dave.

And Michael Douglas as The American President.

I like my politics with a bit of chick flick.

How about you?

  1. I loved “Dave.” If only he could be our president. I may have to actually watch it again now that you’ve reminded me of it. And “An American President” was so good. What a beautiful couple they made. So sad about Douglas’ illness now.

    And oh, before I forget — Do you happen to need a roommate? I seriously may need to get the hell out of here.

  2. “Dave” and “The American President” are on my list, which also includes “All the President’s Men” with Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman, “City Hall” with Al Pacino, “The Contender” with Joan Allen, and “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” with Jimmy Stewart.
