John Boehner’s Shutdown

By THE EDITORIAL BOARD

  1. This movie should be shown in schools, starting in sixth grade… This one and what’s the one with Broderick Crawford and William Holden who’s tutoring the blonde who seriously ‘gets it’ and is finally able to define for herself and the audience what this country is all about. Can’t think of the title, must go look. Born Yesterday, with Judy Holliday! I love that one, too.
