"The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder"

Normally, I would breeze by such headlines as seen above, but knowing that Vincent Bugliosi (a pretty darn good prosecutor and three time New York Times bestselling author) is the man behind such headlines caused me to pass some information along to you all.

Bugliosi's novel, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, is already a bestseller and he's now hoping to capitalize on its success to reach a larger audience by turning it into a documentary. Scheduled to be released sometime in February of next year, it's only a matter of time before this story is picked up by mainstream media, so head on over to the film's website and watch the trailer (it's a whopping 9 minutes, so make yourself a bag of popcorn beforehand).

It's obvious from the title that Bugliosi is making a pretty defiant and antagonistic stand against the United States' most recent president, so it will be interesting to see where moderate Americans stand on the issue. A film like this can either draw hoards of audiences into theaters, or it can alienate so many people that it fails to influence even a single person. Personally, my political feelings totally aside, I'm leaning towards the latter after watching their 9 minute overproduced trailer. Then again, some of the research mentioned is quite intriguing.

Expect more on this film as its release date draws near.
