Quote from Angel Lansbury's character in the 1962 version of "Manchurian Candidate":
"And Johnny will leave those microphones and those cameras with blood all over him, fighting off anyone who tries to help him, defending America even
if it means his own death, rallying a nation of television-viewers into hysteria to sweep us up into the White House with powers that will make
martial law seem like anarchy."
On Meryl Streep's character in the 2004 remake:
Film critic Roger Ebert: "Gossips have whispered for months that her(Meryl Streep's) performance is modeled on Sen. Hillary Clinton..."
Though what I found most interesting is that the political convention(and site of the assassination) in the 2004 remake actually takes place in the
When this latest incident is compared to recent scares, one has to wonder if someone isn't trying to send a "message" to the Obama camp:
--Hillary's bizarre statement about staying in the presidential race just in case Obama has to drop out 'Bobby Kennedy-style.'
--The Dallas, Texas security stripping incident
It was reported that, at a rally in Dallas, agents ordered local police to stop searching each supporter before entering the arena.
--The incident where Obama's plane had serious problems and almost had to make an emergency landing.
--Sudden Deaths of two Clinton super delegates
-Bill Gwatney 8-13-08, shot to death by an intruder into his office at Arkansas Democratic HQ
-United States Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, 8-19-08, allegedly suffered a brain hemorrhage; Jones was also outspoken on the new electronic
Diebold voting machines and possible voter fraud in areas that use the devices.
--A pound of cyanide found in a swank Denver hotel room, where the body of a 29 year old Somali visiting from Canada was discovered. The amount of
cyanide was enough to kill hundreds of people.
Anyway what I find significant about the latest plot is the up-market hotels these guys were staying at, plus the fact that Gartrell was caught
driving a new truck. Homeless, unemployed tweakers don't generally rent rooms at the Hyatt. Motel 6 maybe, but not the Hyatt. How did they manage
to get reservations in the midst of the convention? Another unanswered question.
And notice how the media keeps mentioning how tonight's acceptance speech is on the 45th anniversary of MLK's famous 'I have a dream' speech. We
all know what happened to him.
And before Senator-for-Life Kennedy gave his speech, the tv kept showing multiple pictures of Teddy posing with his brothers. We know what happened
to them, too.
