Video: That Hollywood and their damn pro-gay, Republican bias!

by Jeremy Hooper

We're not sure what, exactly, is going on with this promo video for the upcoming film Swing Vote. But it's gay-centric and political, so -- good enough for us! Have a looksie:

Now, since the movie's plot involves two candidates quite literally fighting for one citizen's vote, we're assuming it has something to do with Kelsey Grammer's Republican candidate stepping outside his comfort zone in order to cater to that citizen (played by Kevin Costner). But why is marriage equality the issue at hand? Is there a gay character? That we don't know.

Whatever the case, we have to say that support for marriage equality, no matter how over-the-top and stereotype-laden, really agrees with the GOP! Whatdya say, McCain: Wanna make things really interesting? After all, we've already seen how effective you all can out-ass us on the issue. Why don't we experience a world in which you elephants outdo even the party of asses on the push for reasoned equality, forcing them to step up their game? Think it over.

Kelsey Grammer runs for president. WTF [YouTube]

**After the jump, the trailer for the flick might put things in more of a context:

So I loved the Kelsey Grammar video. I also really want to see this film. I don't own a tv, so one or two movies a year are my thing, and this one is on the list. So far I've seen "Juno" this year during my spring break. I may splurge for this movie when it comes out.

Looks like it will be a good film. Looking forward to it.

I looked it up on IMDb and here is their synopsis: Kevin Costner stars as Bud Johnson, an apathetic, beer slinging, lovable loser, who is coasting through a life that has passed him by, except for the one bright spot in his mundane existence, his precocious, over achieving twelve-year old daughter, Molly. She takes care of them both, until one mischievous moment on Election Day, when she accidentally sets off a chain of events which culminates in the presidential election coming down to one vote, her dads.

Suddenly, Bud Johnson, the nobody, becomes the voice for everybody when the world realizes that his vote will be the one that elects the next president. Politicians invade the small town of Texico, New Mexico and its unwitting inhabitants, waging war for Bud's vote.
