I watched Pleasantville (and I must admit; I don't know where they got that cover, but it blows) for the first time in a dozen years or so, the other day. It was largely as I remembered it, and I still enjoyed it as much as ever.
What I thought was interesting, though, was how much it felt like (even if you ignore the racist implications) the current GOP, especially the Tea Party wing of the party. Things are changing, and we need to stop it, no matter the cost. That's a plan that would never work out well for anyone, but that seems to be what they're trying.
Let's hope they don't succeed, for our sake and theirs.
