Today's Daily Quiz: October 16, 2007

What movie would best describe America during the Bush/Cheney occupation years?

Previous DQ: If the Democrats in Congress give amnesty to the telecom companies who are stuffing cash into their pockets for the purpose of avoiding penalties for illegally spying on Americans, should voters withhold all support and refuse to vote for Democratic candidates in the next election? In other words, if the Democratic Party reaches this level of blatant corruption, should they be abandoned and all support withdrawn?
Answer (thanks to Mike Rappaport): Trying to decide between Democrats and Republicans is like having an election where Gomer Pyle is running against Charles Manson. You just know Gomer won't get anything done, but at least he won't cut your throat while you sleep.

Publisher's note: Erika and kb also had great answers, and America Jones suggested an alternative way to vote. Check them out here.

We could be subtle, and use a movie like the Mel Gibson/Julia Roberts "Conspiracy Theory."

We could go sci-fi, stretching it a little, and use "The Village of the Damned."

But I think it's best to go old school, with a French classic that sums up America under occupation perfectly:

"The Sorrow and the Pity."

Given what they have done to the country and the environment I would say "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre".
