On the Razzies

I wonder what questions the White House press corps ask of Scott McClellan, the White House press secretary, on the President’s latest honor. From today’s Raleigh newspaper:

George W. Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger won elections. Now they’ve won Razzies.

The [Razzie] awards, doled out in Hollywood on Saturday, are an Oscar spoof that trashes Hollywood’s low points.

Bush won the worst-actor award for his appearance in news and archival footage of Michael Moore’s satiric documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11.” Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was voted worst supporting-actor for “Fahrenheit 9/11,” while Britney Spears’ fleeting cameo in the documentary brought her the worst supporting-actress Razzie.

Razzies founder John Wilson said the prizes were not meant to mock Moore’s film, only the statements Bush and the others make while “putting their highly paid, highly skilled feet in their mouths repeatedly and sucking on them.”
