Denoument (Corrected): Bush/Kinski

Back in July of this year, we offered our prediction that "the remainder of Bush's term [will] look like the last 20 minutes of GOODFELLAS":


As of today, with the indictment of Scooter "Frankie Carbone" (http://imdb.com/name/nm0803370/) Libby, the 20 minutes have begun.

However, we feel we must revise our denouement prediction: the remainder of Pat Fitzgerald's investigation will look like the last 20 minutes of GOODFELLAS; the remainder of the Bush Administration after *that* will look like the last 2 minutes of AGUIRRE: THE WRATH OF GOD -- George Bush, with a demented gleam in his eye, floating downstream on a raft covered with spider monkeys.

(And, by the way, we're not under any impression that Scooter Libby looks anything like Frank Sivero. In fact, were we casting PLAMEGATE: THE MOVIE, we'd have Richard Roxburgh [http://imdb.com/name/nm0746896/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnx0dD0xfGZiPXV8cG49MHxrdz0xfHE9cm94YnVyZ2h8ZnQ9MXxteD0yMHxsbT01MDB8Y289MXxodG1sPTF8bm09MQ__;fc=1;ft=21;fm=1] play Scooter.)
