A new documentary is coming to a theatre near you (at least in Portland and 12 other cities) and is available on DVD. Bush’s Brain follows the life and times of Karl Rove, the chief political advisor to the president. Rove is a legend for his dirty campaign tactics. Many independent observers have noted his close association with the contributors and producers of the so-called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. The promoters of this film, which is based on a book by journalists James Moore and Wayne Slater, provided me with an advance copy. It is worth viewing. Knowing the history of how George Bush has run his past campaigns and who is behind them is key to understanding the viscous nature of his 2004 effort.
