When is a documentary not a documentary?

When is a documentary not a documentary?

When the documentary in question is a surreal pandering piece of political propaganda.Or maybe when the documentarian in question serves only to wash the feet of the subject of the documentary.

A person’s bubble would have to be exceedingly thick to be unable to come up with any critiques of Dear Reader, but that’s what Obama documentarian Davis Guggenheim has managed.

Guggenheim’s responses are reminiscent of the job interview question So what are your weaknesses?

Appropriate responses include: I care too much; I work too hard; I take things home with me; etc..

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
