Contest!  Future Vice President John Edwards is going to host a showing of Dr. Strangelove on Turner Classic Movies this Thursday.  In a promo, he says he was struck with the thought that this (nuclear war started by Boykin type) could actually  happen.  I suppose that in fairness TCM has offered equal time to Cheney.  Now, what would be a good film for Cheney to host?   Some suggestions below the fold.

We might go for an apt title:

Greed
The Over the Hill Gang
The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight
Corporate Affairs
The Public Enemy
What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?
The Hasty Heart (stars Ronald Reagan, by the way)
Operation Madball
Contempt
The War Game
The Evil That Men Do
Puppetmaster
The Corrupter
The Wyoming Kid
The Horizontal Lieutenant

Or we might think of a film with appropriate themes:

Wall Street
Dr. Mabuse:  Der Spieler (The Gambler)
The Paths of Glory
Dr. Strangelove -- wait, that's taken!

I have to stop myself or I'll use up the obvious ones.  You get the idea.  Any suggestions?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
