Remember All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten? Well, everything people in politics and government need to know can be learned from watching Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. And I don’t mean the the piece-of-shit remake with Adam Sandler… I’m talking about the Frank Capra original (1939) with Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur.
God, what a timeless story. And if the world today is different today it’s only for the worse. Think we don’t have some Jim Taylor’s today? If I were king (as RP used to say), I’d make everyone in DC watch this movie every six months.
It wouldn’t make anyone try to blow their brains out as Senator Paine tried to do, but it might make them ashamed. Naaawww.
