What's the point in watching old election coverage again? Experiencing
Jon Stewart and his brilliant, acerbic, hilarious crew at the top of
their game is one very good reason. And if you were a John Kerry fan, it
helps ease the pain of defeat, if only a little. If you were a George W.
Bush fan and want to see the Democrats bashed yet again, this might also
be a good tonic. The problem is that, unless you were stuck dead in the
middle, re-watching this stuff can be equally cleansing and frustrating.
In any case, Indecision 2004 comes to the ultimate conclusion that
everyone in politics can use a good skewering.
DVD Details: Paramount and Comedy Central have packaged the
2004 election season into a handy three-disc box set. Disc One covers
the entire Democratic Convention in Boston (July 27-30), and Disc Two
takes on the Republican Convention in New York (Aug. 30-Sept. 3). Disc
Three contains a mishmash of extras, including debates ("use your pause
button to examine the president's jacket bulge!"), interviews, vignettes
and commentary on election night itself.
