In Your Heart, You Know He’s Right.
But it looks like the upcoming HBO documentary about Barry Goldwater is not going to be a right-wing affair, or even balanced. Check out the paragraph at the HBO site telling us who will be featured:
“Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater includes interviews with Senators Edward Kennedy, Hillary Rodham Clinton (a onetime “Goldwater Girl”) and John McCain (who succeeded Goldwater in Arizona); former TV anchorman Walter Cronkite, humorist Al Franken; TV correspondent Robert MacNeil; former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee; author George Will; 60 Minutes Andy Rooney; CBS News’ Bob Schieffer; White House reporter Helen Thomas; political consultant James Carville; former White House Counsel John Dean . . .”
What’s missing from this list? How about Bill Buckley? How about William Rusher? Pat Buchanan, maybe? How about a few extra conservatives? I’m predicting a screw-job along the lines of how the party has lost its way, unlike the pristine Dems, of course.
