How's this for a movie angle on the news: Obama, Democrat House and Senate majorities, and the Liberalization of the Supreme Court = The Perfect Storm
Here's the movie angle:
A crew of fishermen struggle to support themselves and their families on a catch that gets progressively smaller. Their charismatic captain persuades the crew that everything will change, and he will deliver them a huge catch. They give him carte blanche, and throwing all caution to the wind he takes their boat far beyond where they have fished before. They catch loads of fish and revel like men who have just had a Federal Government bailout. Blinded by hope and greed, the crew does not realize just how perilous a position their captain has led them to. A massive storm gathers and a huge wave (debt payments, cap-and-trade vouchers, nationalized health care, Wall Street bailouts, etc.) hits their ship of state and the boat and the crew are wiped out. Despite a rescue effort, only a few pieces of wreckage are ever recovered.
Here's the news:
