Oliver's Back - Watch Out, Bush

Once upon a time, Oliver Stone made some pretty good movies – Midnight Express, Salvador (his best, in my estimation) – but in recent years it’s been pretty much straight bloviation. If the man only had a sense of humor… Anyway… now he’s got George W. Bush in his sights with supposed real life plot points including “his [Bush’s] belief that God personally chose him to be president of the United States.” Hmm… interesting. I wonder if Stone has an proof of this or whether it’s in the realm of “LBJ killed Kennedy.” Why do I tend to think it’s the latter? (BTW, who would invest in something like this that only will be appearing after Bush leaves office anyway?)
