Tonight we went to see the movie "300", and what we found instead was a polemic in support of Bush's policies, both domestic (the Patriot Act) and foreign (war campaigns on any country in the Middle East not named Israel).
In the movie, the Persian king Xerxes sends an emissary to the Spartan king, Leonides, instructing him to submit to the rule of Xerxes. Leonides responds by violating the age-old rule and having the messenger killed.
What ensues is the historically based tale of Leonides and 300 Spartan warriors momentarily holding off thousands of hordes of Persian soldiers in the narrow mountain pass leading to Sparta before finally succombing to the exotic, demonic, decadent, freakish and effeminate Persian hordes.
