Ever since Kentucky Fried Movie, I thought the Zucker
brothers were comic geniuses. Must be that their political
humor is too spot-on for modern times, or only people like
Barbara Streisand are allowed to showcase political humor.
'SCARY MOVIE' PRODUCER MAKES CAMPAIGN AD; MOCKS DEMOCRATS
The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained an exclusive copy of a
"scary" campaign advertisement created by Hollywood producer
and director David Zucker that was intended to be used by
GOP organizations in the closing weeks of the 2006 campaign.
However, the advertisement was deemed "too hot" by GOP
strategists all across Washington, DC who have refused to
In the ad, Zucker, producer of SCARY MOVIE 4, recreates
former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's 2000
visit to North Korea. During the visit, Secretary Albright
presented North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il with a
basketball autographed by former NBA superstar Michael Jordan.
An actress playing Secretary Albright is shown presenting
Kim Jong Il with the Michael Jordan basketball, painting the
walls of Osama bin Laden's Afghanistan cave and turning a
blind eye to suicide bombers. In one scene her skirt rips as
she changes the tire of a Middle Eastern dictator's limousine.
One GOP strategist said "jaws dropped" when the ad was first
viewed. "Nobody could believe Zucker thought any political
organization could use this ad. It makes a point, but it's
way over the top."
Zucker is the producer and director of comedies such as
"Airplane" and "The Naked Gun." In 2004, Zucker, a longtime
Democrat, embraced the Republican Party based on concerns he
had about national security issues and voted for President
George W. Bush.
