I really like Paul Giamatti. I think he is a great actor. Sadly, however, not since Michael Keaton donned the cape has there been a worse casting decision. I like period movies, but I could not get past the fact the Giamatti felt the need to put on a bad-sounding fake English-esque accent to play a Massachusetts founding father. Just awful.
Its funny you should bring up Star Trek. I was thinking that the Clinton campaign reminded me of the 2001 series "Enterprise".. much-hyped but uninspired, low-rated and cancelled early.
Low ratings prompted UPN to cancel Star Trek: Enterprise on February 2, 2005, but the network allowed the series to complete its fourth season; the final episode aired on May 13, 2005. After a run of four seasons and 98 episodes, it was the first Star Trek series since the original Star Trek to have been cancelled by its network rather than finished by its producers
seeing him on Real Time was painful not only because he talked.. his typical bullshit, but also, he took off -- citing poorly understood fragments of history to shut down the entire conversation. I doubt he will ever be invited back as a panelist.
I'm still hoping Newt Gingrich jumps into the race. He's a good solid nationally-known republican, who doesnt piss off the base like all the top-tier GOP candidates, and he is a guaranteed loser in the general. Whenever I troll the GOP straw polls, I choose the Newtster.
I think his ego is so huge, he probably sees himself as the savior as his party. More Newt!
