Films to Convince World America Not Evil

"I rove American firm!"

Representative Diane Watson (D-California) has introduced a bill that would provide funding to screen Hollywood classics in U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide, in the hopes that the flicks will convince people that the American way of life is not evil.
"My legislation is designed to stock libraries of U.S. embassies and consulates with films that promote the American way of life and then loosen current restrictions so that the public can have greater access," Watson said. "Many of us have forgotten that we didn't win the Cold War just because our military and economy were superior, but also because the Warsaw Pact countries bought into our ideals and beliefs in democracy, human rights, the rule of law and the free flow of information."
Hey, it worked in North Korea, right? Oh wait...
