On the night Barack Obama was elected our 44th President, more than 58 million voters cast their ballots for John McCain. Journalist/filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi presents this first-person, cross-country snapshot of a group of conservative Americans who saw their hopes and dreams evaporate in the wake of the decisive Democratic victory in the 2008 Presidential election. Filmed in the months leading up to that historic event, Pelosi gives a voice to these voters, once labeled 'the silent majority,' and explores their feelings about a changing America in which they live.
Welcome to the Political Equivalent to the East/West Coast Rap Battle.
Nice. In 2008, history was changed forever as an African-American(?) man was sworn into office and assumed his position as the Head of State. Across the nation people cheered and the Media blitzed us with coverage, coverage, and more coverage of this extraordinary man. However, Not everyone cheered. In reality, Millions of people were against this outcome and this documentary captures their words, tears, and heartbreak as the "wrong man" settles into his new office.
Nancy Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, travels along the campaign trail and questions lots and lots of right wingers about their dedication to Rightist views, dedication to McCain/Palin, and dedication to their own values. Along the way we are introduced to men and women who can accurately and intelligently depict their party and their party's fight. We are, also, introduced to men who can not even accurately define the words that they are incorrectly spelling on their picket signs.
This documentary will definitely chap the behinds of conservatives who feel that they are being misrepresented by the "idiots" on the campaign trail, but The liberal media will definitely eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and fourthmeal. While it is at times infuriating, I would recommend that conservatives, radicals, and liberals alike sit down and watch it. While the ultimate outcomes and opinions may vary greatly, we have all seen the Probama videos, pictures, t-shirts, fingernail designs, posters, water bottles, and Websites. The McCain/Palin side deserves some witness as well.
I Promise, it will be incredibly entertaining for all.
