Poodle Samizdat

Yesterday I received a visit from my good friend Ethan Persoff who gave me a sneak preview of a new short film which he and Scott Marshall have produced.

Ethan and Scott (both of whom, incidentally, contributed to The Bush Junta, the book I co-edited with Gary Groth for Fantagraphics a couple of years ago), spent about two years working on this film. Remarkably, this work was accomplished via email.

The film itself is even more remarkable. It stars such notables as Condoleeza Rice, George W. Bush, Sen. Bill Frist, Sen. Rick Santorum, Karl Rove, Bob's Big Boy, Ann Coulter, Ronald Reagan, Geraldo Rivera, Nancy, Sluggo, John Negroponte, Jim Dobson, Dick Cheney, Bozo the Clown, Dennis Hastert, Jeff Gannon Guckert, Douglas Jay Feith, Donald Rumsfeld, Antonio Gonzalez, and Uncle Sam, and it is--well, it is indescribable. The above trailer can only give you a taste of what's in store. Anyway, trust me, this is a Must-See.

And you can see it by following the link below. By the way, this is Not-Safe-for-Work. In fact, it may not be safe anywhere--all the more reason to see it ...
