As much as anything has smelled over the last six years -- and just about everything has -- this to me stinks to high heaven.
This isn't a Chicken Little diary, so I don't think a SYFP response is warranted (but that's up to you). This isn't the end of the world.
I just want to explore what our response should be to the release of a movie, eleven days before the 2006 election, graphically depicting the assassination of President George W. Bush.
"While freedom of speech is at the core of our nation's beliefs and should always remain a near-absolute right in our country, the release of a film depicting the assassination of our currently serving president, eleven days before a major, real-world U.S. election, serves only to distract from, if not poison, our national debate about real issues.
Let's let all the talk about this and that fiction that some may hope will now come to dominate the conversation give way to real talk about real facts. This is the real world we are living in. Let's talk about that, and what that means we need to do on November 7th."
