Political movies

Waiting for the voting to end ... we thought we'd offer a few of our favorite politically-themed movies.

Bob says:

1. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington: Jimmy Stewart takes it to the man.

2. Bob Roberts: Tom Robbins plays a conservative folk singer running for Senate. One of his "hits" is Times Are A Changing Back.

3. The Manchurian Candidate: Skip the 2004 version. Watch the one of Frank Sinatra. Listen for oft-repeated creepy line: "Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life."
