So if you read From Here To Insanity, then you might remember this fake news article from the October/November 2002 issue entitled “Tacky, Ill-Advised September 11 Film To Be Released in 2026”. Now here’s the funny part: SOMEONE ACTUALLY DECIDED TO MAKE THIS MOVIE.

DC 9/11 examines Bush’s trial by fire

Showtime docudrama of terrorist attacks ‘not a soap opera;’ producer looks at White House leadership during crisis

The American channel Showtime will make a little bit of history in September when it premieres DC 9/11: Time of Crisis, a movie about how the White House reacted to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Timothy Bottoms portrays U.S. President George W. Bush in the docudrama, which includes “inferred dialogue” and may be the first ever made about a sitting president.

Well it looks like I’m some sort of modern-day Nostradamus because someone had the gall to go and make a movie about a tragedy less than three years after the tragedy occurred. Fantastic. But that’s not all.. look at this! It stars… the guy who played Bush on “That’s My Bush” as President Bush! Edie Inksetter as “Weeping Soldier”! Captain Sulu as Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta! And Sherry Palmer as Condoleezza Rice! Boy oh boy does this sound like fun
