Actors sans scripts: The director edition

Actors sans scripts: The director edition

Writer/director Rod Lurie (“The Contender”) loves the idea of having a female commander in chief. He even made a poorly viewed TV show about it.

But he’s less keen on having the real deal in the White House. (hat tip: Newsbusters)

Here’s his take on Gov. Sarah Palin:

“People who understand politics know anything is possible,” he said. “Picking a woman is an absolute strategic idea from McCain’s point of view. He’s not talking about governing right now. The idea of this woman actually facing down [Vladimir] Putin and negotiating with [Dmitry] Medvedev is idiotic.”

And why is that, Rod? Cuz she’s too pretty? Or too … Republican (cue the threatening organ music)?
