Even though just a re-run of a great comedy, I was amazed at how perfectly well the 1992 movie titled: The Distinguished Gentleman, staring Eddie Murphy, honestly depicted TODAY's (re. 2012) senatorial, congressional and administration also Corruptne$$ & Working$ (actually NOT Working$) of Washington, D.C., so-damn-well.
Also and as to the finale depicting a black con-artist intending to run for The Presidency of The United States, one could easily state that the ending scene of that movie Distinguished Gentleman was actually quite profound and prophetic.
Even though said jokingly by con-artist Eddie Murphy at very ending of that movie, America did get so suckered in 2008, and then again in 2012. That just cannot be denied.
"Hooray For Ho-o-o-llywood"!!! Tough luck for America.
