New news positions George Clooney as the director of Hamdan v Rumsfeld and Matt Damon in the starring role of navy lawyer Charles Swift. The film will be a dramatization of the court case in which the supreme court found in favor of Swift and his client Hamdan and held that military commissions to try detainees at Guantanamo Bay lacked “the power to proceed because its structures and procedures violate both the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the four Geneva Conventions signed in 1949.”

Well, sign me right up to see a couple of limousine liberals trash America!

Why do they make these movies? Are those insider awards they hand each other really worth all this pointless effort?

Hahaha but of course he's making this film. But he's not done yet. He has seven more to make:

*1.) A chilling documentary about the potential pandemic of accidental deaths at gun ranges.
*2.) An even more chilling documentary about the secret web of conservative student clubs at liberal colleges.
*3.) A chilling thrilling documentary about the cultic and powerful pro-life movement, emphasizing the activists that blow up clinics.
*4.) A spine-chilling documentary about the Rwandan-esque genocide of animals that is sport-hunting.
*5.) A shockingly chilling docudrama about the wicked world of soda- from the evil scientists who create new flavors to target vulnerable children to the power-hungry convenience stores that profit off death.
6.) A chillingly powerful documentary about the institution of motherhood, and the maniacal plan to overpopulate the earth.
*7.) And of course: "The First Blast of the Trumpet Against The Monstrous Regiment of Sarah Palin" An eerie look into the life of the Alaskan cultress and her evil clan (children).


All of these films will be done in black and white, with random hints of pale color. "O Fortuna" will be the theme song for each movie's trailer, and there will be silence during the slow and fading end credits, all of which to emphasize the profound liberal philosophicalness of each film.
