Prior to yesterday evening’s showing of Stefan Forbes’ Boogieman: The Lee Atwater Story at Westwood’s Festival Theatre — Sunday, 6.21.08, 7:20 pm. Doc is the sharpest and fairest portrait of smear politics and Republican culture since So Goes The Nation. Truly a portrait of evil incarnate, but in my view the evil resides in the gullibility of the brainiacs whose votes were guided and goaded by Atwater’s race-baiting.
