    Jackie Brown has heart. A pretty big one in fact. And I think this movie does even if Tarantino’s heart isn’t much like mine. I really...

    I don't see how the whole staff doesn't eventually quit over this. You can't keep being David Roth or Albert Burneko or Laura Wagner and...

    Have other presidents had fewer rallies? How were they different? Did Obama go to said event and tell everybody to calm down or something?
