We have it — and will be showing it as soon as grandmaster "locust capitalist" Mitt Romney is "ready". Here's a sample — and there are updates below the break:
UPDATE from Dave "Doctor" Gonzo: Daily Beast's Peter Boyer adds a few juicy details:
According to four sources familiar with the project, the film was commissioned by Barry Bennett, a conservative activist who was once chief of staff for Ohio Republican Congresswoman Jean Schmidt. Bennett is now at the Alliance for America’s Future, a Virginia-based group whose principals include Mary Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Rep. Jean "Ethics? Schmethics!" Schmidt, by way of reminder, is arguably the most venomous and mean-spirited far-righter in the House of Representatives. Her rants — and gaffes — are legendary. Schmidt probably considers Tea Partiers too liberal, so it would follow that her fellow travelers consider Mitt a commie socialist and "fair game" for attack from any direction.
And there's this from the Beast piece:
The filmmaker, Jason Killian Meath, is an award-winning director who worked on Romney political ads in Romney’s run against John McCain in 2004. When Romney retained the services of SSG for his current presidential bid, Meath was not part of the team. Meath declined to comment on the film, or upon his motives in making it.
