Libertarian Lobbying

Today, I finally got to see the DVD of "Thank You for Smoking," which came out back in March/April, 2006. It's a comedy about a lobbyist who works for the cigarette industry.

"TYFS" is definitely worth checking out. I suppose you could say the movie takes a negative view of smoking but it also has many strong libertarian sentiments.

Aaron Eckhart was nominated for a Golden Globe for his portrayal of lobbyist Nick Naylor -- although he was bested earlier this week by Borat.
