The Widdershins

Good Saturday and weekend Widdershins!

If you are a fan of politics, a more-than-curious observer of the art form, or like most of us here, have a dog in this hunt, the next two weeks are definitely going to be your cup of tea.

We now know that the talking yam has picked Hoosier governor Mike Pence as his veep selection.  Whether that’s a good choice remains to be seen but at least it did spare Pence the embarrassment of possibly running for reelection as governor and losing.

As to Hillary’s selection for veep, well we don’t know that quite yet.  Elizabeth Warren was slated to speak to the convention as a keynote speaker on the first night, which would seem to indicate she wasn’t going to be Hillary’s veep selection.  Then suddenly, yesterday, her name wasn’t on the list of speakers.  Tongues are wagging about that news but all we can do is wait and see.

So Widdershins, with all of the hoopla of the conventions going on I thought we might take a a look at some movies about politics and the shenanigans and intrigue that go along with that topic.  There are tons of them out there and I’m sure we all have one or more that are favorites.  These are in no particular order.

(1) The Manchurian Candidate ~ 1962 version

(2) Advise and Consent ~ scene with Charles Laughton ~ his last movie ~ lots of insider politics

(3) The Candidate ~ Robert Redford

(4) The Best Man ~ Henry Fonda

(5) Primary Colors ~ Billy Bob Thornton scene

Obviously there are lots more movies in a political vein but you all get the drift.  Please add your contributions below.
