Hollywood reads the Declaration of Independence. [UPDATED]

[UPDATED: NotSoBlueStater notes in comments that this is from 2003, which argues that even though they read it, a large number of these people probably didn’t get it.  Such is life.]

This… isn’t bad.  They played it straight.  Tried to keep the frills under control.  Allowed the text for speak for itself.

:holding up hand: Yes, yes, I know your objections.  I even share some of them.  But at least now we know for certain that a couple of these people have actually read the damned thing.

    Reading something and Understanding something are two different things.

    I’m suspicious of the vintage here. Each of these people is probably close to a decade older than this now. And what year did the viability of Mel Gibson’s appearance expire? I smell 2004 (Just I guess. I swear I haven’t done the work yet), which makes the passion and conviction more logical. Defeating George Bush and the winning Revolutionary War are roughly equivalent to these folks — except Bush was worse, by like a trillion times!! John Kerry could and would have fixed it ALL. No, really, he would have.

    Ding. Ding. Ding. Ding. Ding!!!!! I win!!! 2003!

    Hmmm…did anyone else think it was a little weird for Graham Greene’s only solo line to be the bit about the merciless Indian savages?
    And I think that Bruce Boxleitner ought to have been one of the readers…well, you know why…
