Fred's seen a movie!

Our pal, TexasFred is blathering on again today about something or other to do with how Obama is Destroying America because he's such a moonbat SecretMuslim wuss, or something, and in the middle of his rant he throws this out:
Did any of you ever watch a movie called *A Few Good Men*?

The lead character is a bleeding heart wuss lawyer and he used the flight records from Gitmo to Washington, D.C. as the basis for his analysis into the habits of Col. Jessup.
This cracks me up. I've actually seen this weird phenomenon on more than one occasion - a rightwinger citing A Few Good Men as some sort of validation for whatever twisted thing is going on in what passes in their circle for "brains." At first I wondered if any of them had ever SEEN the actual movie (Do they KNOW that it was directed by Rob Reiner? Do they know who Rob Reiner is? I'm guessing Not.) or if they were just swooning over a clip that showed Jack Nicholson hollering, "You can't HANDLE the truth!" and were so busy having multiple orgasms after that they missed the ending which contains MY favorite line in which Lt. Kaffee says to Col Jessup:
Don't call me "son." I'm a lawyer and an officer in the United States Navy, and you're under arrest, you son of a bitch.
Woo Hoo!! Strike up the Band!

UPDATE: I think it's probably unfair to point out Fred's error about the "flight records" as support for my contention that he didn't actually see the movie - they were phone records, not "flight" records (and they weren't used "as the basis for his analysis into the habits of Col. Jessup" - they were used to prove that Col. Jessup was lying in his testimony under oath. Wingnuts might remember that this process is called "committing perjury".); but that's a pretty minor error and one that would be easy to make unless one is a movie fanatic like me! Still, Fred's an idiot. Period.

What do you want to bet that Freddie still gets a woody every time he hears "Wolverines!"?
