Tom Dobbs, comedic host of a political talk show - a la Bill Maher and Jon Stewart - runs for President of the US as an independent candidate who, after an issues-oriented campaign and an explosive performance in the final debate, gets just enough votes to win.

The government said recently that we're cutting back spending, yet NASA blew $28 million to develop a fountain pen that writes upside down in zero gravity. The Russians solved the same problem with a 5-cent pencil... and after two cases of vodka, it's still writing.

I saw the movie with some friends, expecting to see a laugh out loud comedy, something smart and funny (like john Stewart) to my surprise the movie was more about the flaw in voting instead of the humour of this comedian. there were some parts where I did find my self laughing and robin Williams was quite charismatic when saying speeches, monologues or when on his talk show..too bad that only made up about 25 minutes of the 2 hour movie..i felt there was too much filler and the events were boring and slow. Would've been much better if it were a)shorter and b)focused more on him as a comedian/presidential funny-man instead of trying to solve the problem with the voting machine conspiracy and how he shouldn't be in office!!!!
