Obama Documentary Coming to HBO

I’m going to write two versions of this article–one for Republicans who voted for John McCain, and one for Democrats who voted for Barack Obama. You may choose which version of the article best suits you:

Republican Version:

Serving as more proof of the liberal media being totally in the tank for Barack Obama, HBO has announced that it will air a documentary tracking Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. The documentary will be produced by Class 5 Films, which is owned by Ed Norton, a known liberal, and a Yale graduate with a better than “C” average (which makes him an elitist).

No doubt the documentary will portray Obama’s successful 2008 campaign in a positive light, ignoring his terrorist, socialist leanings, and his goal to crush hard-working Americans beneath a yolk of high taxes. The film will surely be timed for a release that will maximize its potential to provide positive propaganda for the new Administration, which will be turning the White House into an Afro-centric Madrasah on January 20, 2009.

You can read more by visiting Variety’s website, after you’ve removed all of the money from your 401k and buried it somewhere in a secluded wood to protect it from the coming Democrat New Order.

Democratic Version:

HBO will release a documentary following Barack Obama’s overwhelmingly successful 2008 presidential bid and oh my God, can you believe what just happened Tuesday?!!

As Roger Ebert said, it’s not that we elected an African-American candidate, it’s that we elected the right candidate! All week, running into my Republican friends, I’ve tried my damnedest to avoid gloating, but it’s tough. I’ve been looking at their long faces and saying things like, “It’s all going to be okay. You’re going to be pleasantly surprised.”

But on election night, who was more surprised than me? Even when Fox News called Ohio and Florida for Obama, I didn’t believe it.

“Why would Fox lie about that?” a friend asked.

“Let’s not forget,” I replied, “They’re not just liars. They’re also pretty dumb.”

And then CNN piled on. But I still didn’t believe it. It didn’t fully hit me even after the networks were calling the whole race for my guy. Then I got in the car just in time to hear McCain giving his concession speech on NPR.


Last night, when speaking with my son about his slacking grades at school, I got to ask the question, “Do you want to be a ‘C’ student like George W. Bush? The most unpopular president in the history of the U.S.? Arguably one of the most unpopular human beings residing on the face of the planet? Or do you want to be an ‘A’ student like Barack Obama?”

My son looked at me and I could tell that he got it. That was a heady moment. For the first time since FDR we have a President who can not only lead but who can be a friggin’ role model.

Anyway, all that aside, can’t wait for the doc. But if you want to get a nice inside scoop right now on both the Obama and McCain campaigns, covered by Newsweek journalists for a year with the caveat that nothing they unearthed could be printed until after the election, click here. The first chapter is devoted to Obama, the second to McCain, and it continues to alternate. It’s riveting stuff.
