    Watching the heads fill up 10 hours of TV time tonight saying nothing of interest or importance but saying it with with all the moral certitude of a Prophet preaching the Apocalypse is going to be mind numbing.

    Whats are your favorite election/politics movies?

    The Candidate
    7 Days in May
    Advise & Consent

    I just watched The Ides of March last night. Pretty good I thought.

    I haven't seen it in years (it used to be one of those movies that would always show up on HBO/Showtime in the afternoon), but The Candidate is outstanding.

    The Ides of March is also very good.

    And now that's it's out on DVD, The Campaign is good fun. Very outrageous but funny.

    if anyone knows when/if this is airing today i'd appreciate a head's up. probably the flick most responsible for awakening the interest in politics within me (i was a huge redford fan once i saw 'butch cassidy and the sundance kid.' he was too kool for skool. gotta love how sundance got katherine ross to undress; loved his character's wife in 'the candidate,' too karen carlson. a real womanly woman, a la connie britton.)

    one of the greatest last lines of dialogue in film history: 'what do we do now?'
