Yesterday I went to see Mel Gibson's new movie, Edge of Darkness. It was a pretty good movie and in its own right a bit prophetic.
This movie was set in Boston. It seems the movie had an evil US Senator from Massachusetts as a major part of the story. Even though when the movie was made, Massachusetts hadn't had a Repubican Senator in 30 years, nor could anyone imagine one especially in the Senate seat held by late Edward Kennedy.
But, Hollywood was one step ahead of the public, because they had this evil Senator from Massachusetts being a Republican. Oh, he looked like disgraced Democrat politician, Eliot Spitzer and not Scott Brown, and he was complicit in murder and what appeared to be treason, but to Hollywood this was the behavior of a Republican rather than a Democrat even in normally left wing Massachusetts.
