And by “World,” Newt means America.
His movie, going straight to video for the price of $19.95 plus $4 shipping & handling, is called America at Risk.
My favorite part of the trailer is watching Newt’s wife (skinny woman in the pink dress standing next to him) stare at the teleprompter like it’s the anti-Christ.
The “end of the world” is in hot demand right now. It’s sad. Nothing but fear. Because fear controls people. It manipulates people. And gosh, why do anything to solve America’s problems when a slogan like “The End is Near” can win you an election?
Hopefully, it’ll die down for a bit after the midterms. At least until May 2011 (Cuz that’s when the end is supposed to be here.)
