Politics becomes all the rage in Hollywood

Politics becomes all the rage in Hollywood: "ATLANTA -- With election season in full bloom, Hollywood is bathing movies with the partisan hues of red and blue.
Like the tidal wave from the global-warming disaster 'The Day After Tomorrow,' political films will engulf theaters and TV between now and the November election.
'I have to think about it as unprecedented,' said Jay Telotte, professor of film studies at Georgia Tech.
'Fahrenheit 9/11' raised the temperature for political movies, inflaming both ends of the political spectrum. Moviemaker Michael Moore openly promotes his anti-Bush film as a vehicle to unseat the president in November.
Also out but in limited release are 'The Hunting of the President,' a documentary about the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, and 'Control Room,' a presentation of war coverage by Qatar-based Al-Jazeera television.
Stand by. There's much more coming to theaters."
