Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story

by

This documentary about political advisor Lee Atwater shows the extent to which Republicans have become a “stealth party,” as one pundit puts it, advocating on behalf of the common man and giving him nothing in return. Atwater, who influenced the nefarious tactics of Karl Rove and got the first Bad Bush into office, was the guy who did their dirty work, generating false rumors and slurring opponents' reputations. In fact, he even apologized to his victims as he laid on his death bad, suffering from a debilitating brain tumor. HHH
