Pop Philosophy

Political Song Contest

That's why they call it the White House Several weeks back, I made a flippant request for tales of George Dubya's coke-addled past. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect video images! K. Lezak of Los Angeles sent me the address of a trailer for GWB '73, a made-for-cable film that purports to tell how "one man changed from privileged party animal to Republican Party candidate." It's just how I imagined life at Yale was for the two-faced Texan: doing lines off the naked breasts of prostitutes, getting in fist fights with his daddy, blowing off exams for parties, having sex with Tricia Nixon. Don't start thinking it's a comedy, though. At the film's end, as Bush lies in bed in his cowboy hat with a plate of blow, a girl says, "You know you're never going to become president if you keep going on like this." His horrifying response? "Watch me!" To see the mock trailer, go to www.ifilm.com/ifilm/skeletons/film_detail/0,1263,492687,00.html.
