As a teenage political junkie, I was glued to the Watergate hearings in the 1970s. As a result, my fascination with Richard Nixon has never waned. So you know this movie, Frost/Nixon, has my name written all over it.
But here’s my question — how long will it be before we see a movie about the Bush/Cheney years that comes close to this? It might now be all that long since VP Cheney apparently admitted this week that he was aware of and endorsed water-boarding (read: torture) of certain prisoners — a crime that I learned from Rachel Maddow tonight was punishable by death after World War II.
Ah, political trivia. It can come in so handy sometimes.
UPDATE: And if you’re a Nixon/Watergate aficionado like I am, have I got an offer for you! Thanks to the nice people at Universal (and their nice marketing people!), I have an official Frost/Nixon movie poster and hat to giveaway!!
