Bush voted "Movie Villain of the Year"
Reuters ^ | Wed, Oct 27, 2004

President George W. Bush may see himself as defender of democracy and compassionate conservatism but film fans have voted him "Movie Villain of the Year".

The American "Axis of Evil" fighter is wooing voters with security pledges ahead of the presidential election next week, but it was Bush's role in Michael Moore's anti-war film "Fahrenheit 9/11" that won him the villainous title.

In a poll for Total Film magazine, the U.S. leader fought off competition from such well-known baddies as atomic scientist Doctor Octopus from "Spider-Man 2" and fellow Texan Leatherface from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

"The overwhelming response of our readers voting Bush top villain just goes to show how frightening people found him in Fahrenheit 9/11," Total Film's editor Matt Mueller told Reuters.

"He was absolutely terrifying in that film. The infamous scene where he's informed about the Twin Towers attack while visiting a school, and sits there absolutely paralysed, is enough to strike fear into anyone's heart," he said.

Words fail me. The media will say anything to take a jab at Bush and ignore the issues.

Considering the movie, I actually consider the "Movie Villian of the Year" award to be a badge of honor for GWB.

Keep in mind that the Total Film magazine URL ends in .uk. In other words, it is British. In fact, the headline in the most recent issue is TOTAL FILM IS PROUD TO BE BRITISH!

No surprises here.

And, of course, the editors 'conveniently' nominated him for consideration, I'm sure.

Yeah, I remember the "Bedtime for Bonzo" remarks made by Hollywood elitists towards Reagan back in 1984. These people just don't get it.

If Democrats are so easily frightened, we can't very well have one as President.

Too bad they didn't get to review Stolen Honor.

The authors needed no lies to show Kerry for the loathsome, lying character that he is.

I lot of the undecided people I have talked to say that Phonyheit-911 just made them want to vote for Bush, because the movie was so shameless and so full of lies. Thanks Mike Moore--GOP hero! By the way nice comment on Mikulski, she is a lezbo, funny how that hasn't been in the news either.

In a poll for Total Film magazine

That's what we need, more self-righteous polls.

All three people that read this magazine voted Bush, therefore it is unanimous.

I suspect that when the dems focus group their loss this year, they will vote Moore the villian of the year. Not only will Kerry lose, but it will require quadruple bypass surgery to get the dems out of pacifist loser mode.

I share your concern. This "high road" stuff doesn't win us any support; it only makes our side look weak and ineffectual.

We've got the brains. We need a spine.
