January 12, 2008
Woke up to a beautiful day. Worked on Mickey Free closeups. Did three, want to do five today.

Top Secret Writer Exchange, Part II
On Wilson's War--you are so damn left wing! Knocking the reds out of Afghanistan brought down the Soviet Union and ended the Cold War. Nice work. So now we are fighting these same Islamic nutcases--so what. First we worked with the Soviets to defeat Hitler and helped create that monster. Just like the French helped us in the Rev and then got their own Rev as a result. You never know what will happen--thats the joy of history. The point now is to finish off Islamic fascism. I could do it--but of course I can't be President. [because the Top Secret Writer is foreign born—German!—and was adopted by an American family and the constitution strictly prohibits "foreign born" history professors from being president, or at least part of that.]

Let's see, we created a vacuum in Afghanistan, armed Osama bin Ladin, left them in the lurch then complain when they turned their guns on us. In the opening of the movie, we see an Islamic kneeling to pray, in silhouette. Prayers over, he stands and brandishes an RPG, turning to point right at the camera, and ta da, just like the cowboy in "The Great Train Robbery", he fires the missile right at the screen. Nobody ducked. We're too jaded toward that gimickry, but it is symbolic in more ways than one, you damn Legal Immigrant, you.

"We f----- the end game."
—Charlie Wilson, quoted at the end of the movie
