Anti-Bush sentiment busts out all over - movies/TV
Writers and others say the sniping now directed at the White House is at least partly a response to the self-censorship they endured for more than a year after the terrorist attacks for fear of being seen as disloyal, and the disenchantment many have over the perception that George W. Bush intentionally misled the nation into war.

The year began sharply when the Sundance Film Festival in January gave an enthusiastic reception to The Hunting of the President, a documentary version of the bestselling book by journalists Joe Conason and Gene Lyons that exposed the well-funded right-wing machinations - from the Paula Jones lawsuit to the Whitewater investigation - that kept Bill Clinton on the defensive and occasionally distracted from affairs of state throughout his presidency. The film was made by the television producer Harry Thomason, one of Clinton's friends. It will be theatrically released June 11.

And Michael Moore's next film, Fahrenheit 911, will take a jaundiced look at the connections between the Bush and bin Laden families. It is expected to debut at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

Most creators say the anti-administration cracks are only showing up because there's a significant audience for them. "This is the marketplace," said Joe Conason. "Republicans are supposed to believe in that."

3. This is a BAD THING people!
I've always had a bad feeling about this kind of thing, but have never really known why. Kevin Drum @ washington monthly has a great post that hits the nail on the head today: http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/20... - these people are like animals backed into a corner, the more they feel the world is against them, the deeper they dig their claws into the floor.

Stuff like this only reinforces this for them, all to our country's detriment.

4. Check out the latest edition of American Conservative Magazine !!!
I think this publication is associated with Pat Buchannan. Its feature story is entitled "The Pinocchio Presidency". Check out the issue's cover, with long noses on Bush and his bunch. This cover is worthy of the home page of Democratic Underground. And on a magazine that calls itself "American Conservative" yet!!! Bush is now getting bashings from conservatives as well.
