Note to Ted Turner: 

Wouldn't it be great if Ted Turner was to make it a point to show all of the great movies depicting the insanity of the Vietnam war in the weeks of the presidential debates. No matter whether Edwards or Kerry gets the nomination, the taint of Bush's record supporting the war/opposing the war and defaming men like Kerry and Cleland will be not-so-subtly reinforced if every time you try to change the channel you are confronted with the gore and lunacy of that ill conceived show of American force. Not only that, but since we are still "in country" in Iraq, the message of Bush's hypocricy will also shine through like a maglite covered in gauze.

What do you think Ted? Can you make it happen? Here's a brief list of movies for your consideration.

The Anderson Platoon, Apocalypse Now, Born on the Fourth of July, A Bright Shining Lie, Casualties of War, Coming Home, Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam, The Deer Hunter, First Blood, Full Metal Jacket, Gardens of Stone, Good Morning, Vietnam, Hamburger Hill, The Hanoi Hilton, Heaven & Earth - Oliver Stone Collection, In Country, Platoon (Special Edition), Return With Honor, Uncommon Valor, The War, We Were Soldiers

And what the heck, toss in Three Kings too for good measure.
