The Bush-Cheney 'TOP GUN' Focus Group

The Bush-Cheney'Top Gun' Focus Group

Ian Maxwell MacKinnon and Eric Zinman are proud to invite you as a special, prescreened American, to host President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney's executive focus group for a project of the highest stakes for the future of our country: a remake of the 1986 blockbuster "Top Gun." This Film is a sign of the White House's faith, commitment, and leadership in advancing America's ideals at home and abroad. Taking our hero on a secret mission to Iraq, this movie will boost US military recruitment, convince skeptics of America's noble cause, and show the Islamic world what freedom and liberty are all about. The president and vice-president are running the focus group themselves after a screening of the rough cut raised concerns. They'll perform new and corrected scenes and songs from the soundtrack, with Mr. Cheney accompanying the president on piano.

Listen to

"Goin' to Dubai"
