‘s David Weigel saw a trailer for and some clips from David Zucker‘s An American Carol, a right-wing satirical fantasy in which a Michael Moore-like documentarian, called Michael Malone (Kevin Farley), undergoes a catharsis not unlike Ebenezer Scrooge’s in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, except Malone comes to see the light of reactionary conservatism.

In one of the clips, Weigel writes, “George Washington (Jon VoIght) takes Malone to St. Paul’s Cathedral to lecture him on freedom of religion and ‘freedom of speech, which you abuse.’ Malone is grossed out by dust in the priest’s box, so the doors open onto the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. ‘This is the dust of 3000 innocent human beings!’ bellows Washington. Malone whimpers that he’s just making movies. Washington won’t have it. ‘Is that what you plan to say on Judgment Day?'”
