I know I’ve been expressing some optimism about November in recent posts. But forget about it. A total game-changer means we should all give up on reelecting Barack Obama.
Apparently gluttons for more movie critic punishment, the producers of the first Atlas Shrugged movie have announced that production on Part Two will begin in the spring.
John Aglialoro, who independently produced and funded the first movie to the tune of $20 million, and Harmon Kaslow, another producer, announced that they would begin principal photography on the sequel in April, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Ever attentive to timing, Aglialoro and Kaslow said they chose to announce the movie on what would have been Ayn Rand’s 107th birthday and are shooting to release it this October, right before the presidential election.
Between the artistic brilliance of right-wing propaganda films, their huge market share, the legendary financial success of the first film, and the fact that Ayn Rand is better than all of us, I don’t see any reason to hope for an Obama victory. In fact, I’m going to start hording my money from the rest of you leeches.
