There's a new movie out portraying Abraham Lincoln as both a defender of freedom and... a vampire hunter. Yes.
In what appears to be a trend of irreverent but oddly heartfelt takes on American history, The Daily Show Senior Writer Kevin Bleyer has taken it upon himself to rewrite our nation's most sacrosanct document in his new book "Me the People: One Man's Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution."
A comedy writer rewriting the constitution? What could possibly go wrong?
This Daily Show guy's pretty sharp...
I almost want to form a class action lawsuit on behalf of my fellow Americans against the producers of that film for defamation against a President, but I think the free market will make it fail on its own... I don't understand why they'd make this crap, when there are so many great stories from American history as it is. If they want to make a Civil War action pic, why not the story of John Brown, the guerilla abolitionist & friend of Frederick Douglass, whose actions basically set off the tensions leading up to Ft. Sumter? I bet it'd look a lot like "Django Unchained."
