I’ve written about this before:
I didn’t vote for Bush in the last election – not so much because of worries about him, or his support by the religious right. The far right and left have been shouting at one another from the trenches for decades, and abortion, gay rights, etc. will always be a battle-ground.
My concerns were that, if something happened to George W. Bush, we’d find ourselves being “led” by Cheney and his ideological buddies at the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) – and that scares me.
This concern was so severe that I argued vehemently with poor beleaguered Dear Husband (DH) about it. Emotions were so strong in this country (I felt) that some idiot might actually decide to do something to George Bush if he won the election.
He did, nobody has, and we’re all still here arguing in the trenches (contrary to Polimom’s hysterical vapors).
Today, however, comes news that a fictional “docudrama” is coming out (premiering in September in Toronto), reminding Polimom yet again of that terrible worry (via memeorandum):
President Bush ‘assassinated’ in new TV docudrama
This is the dramatic moment when President George Bush is gunned down by a sniper after a public address at a hotel, in a gripping new docudrama soon to be aired on TV.
Set around October 2007, President Bush is assassinated as he leaves the Sheraton Hotel in Chicago.
Death of a President, shot in the style of a retrospective documentary, looks at the effect the assassination of Bush has on America in light of its ‘War on Terror’.
The 90 minutes feature explores who could have planned the murder, with a Syrian-born man wrongly put in the frame.
I don’t think anyone rational would interpret a docudrama as a suggestion, but I really could have done without revisiting those night terrors. Thanks so much.
