Bob Dole's 'true lies'
Sen. Bob Dole (R) criticizes what the Hollywood entertainment industry puts out, yet he favors cutting the Public Broadcasting System and the National Endowment for the Arts, which provide uplifting nature shows, symphony concerts, and high-quality children's programming. Mr. Dole said the movie "Natural Born Killers," which was a condemnation of violence, was a "nightmare of depravity." Yet he recommended "True Lies," a movie full of exploding buildings, cars, and human beings - which, coincidentally, stars one of Hollywood's biggest Republicans, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Senator Dole's presidential campaign slogan ought to be: "Bob Dole: True Lies."
