To the editor: The other day I saw the movie, “Swing Vote.” It wasn’t a particularly great film. There was some not-so-subtle political satire, which was amusing.
The improbable plot has a presidential election coming down to the decision of a single voter, and that voter is clueless on issues. The candidates then spend 10 days trying to win over this man to their side.
In the course of doing this, they both pander to him to the extent the Republican becomes an environmentalist and the Democrat takes an anti-immigration position.
