An American Carol, which opens today, stars nearly every conservative actor in Hollywood, all 10 of them, and it skewers the bete noir of conservatives, everywhere:
It reworks the Charles Dickens Christmas Carol scenario so that a leftist filmmaker based on Michael Moore, painted here as an unpatriotic, America-hating boob out to banish the Fourth of July, is visited, schooled and slapped around by ghosts of Americans past, George Washington (Jon Voight) and Gen. George Patton (Kelsey Grammer), plus a ghost of the future, played by country star Trace Adkins.

Here’s a brief review with spoilers.
We really need to support this movie, folks. Another movie is coming out today…by the loathesome Bill Mahr, who does his own brand of skewering: of religious folks.
…Maher spears only small fish: marginal ministers, inarticulate eccentrics, some dude who plays Jesus at an Orlando theme park. You won’t see heavyweights like the Rev. Rick Warren or Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, who might actually have scored a point or two. (And by the way, how did the filmmakers go about requesting interviews? Several subjects seem to have been ill-informed, if not misled, before the cameras started rolling.)
Maher claims that his mission is to use reason and logic to combat the fallacies of faith. In reality, his tools are sarcasm and humiliation. Either way, it’s a fool’s errand, as Maher – who is no fool – should know.
One movie skewers a fat, dishonest, hypocritical propagandist. The other one skewers religious folk.
Let’s support An American Carol by watching it this weekend, and help it CRUSH Religulous at the box office.
