What if President Obama, who has fantasized about “going Bulworth”—or busting out with what he really thinks—went Bulworth? As Nation editor-in-chief Katrina vanden Heuvel says on The Young Turks, Obama could riff right off the fictional Bulworth, a senator from California depicted in Warren Beatty’s 1998 film of the same name:
We got babies in South Central
Dying as young as they do in Peru
We got public schools that are nightmares
got a Congress that ain’t got a clue.
You are too big to jail
And too big to fail
And we’ll keep paying you that tribute
So long as you continue to contribute.
