Somebody in the White House, please, hide those copies of the President’s favorite movie. He’s been watching “High Noon” again.
He has to stop thinking he’s Gary Cooper, waiting for the three badmen (Osama bin Laden, Mamhoud Ahmadinejhad and Bashar al-Asad) coming to town to kill him.
Congress is not all those cowardly townspeople who won’t help.
And, in the final showdown, he can’t count on his life partner, Dick Cheney, who doesn’t shoot as straight as Grace Kelly.
Remind him that the movie is a parable about McCarthyism and people who would not stand up for American freedoms, written by a man soon to be blacklisted as a Communist.
