A top White House Aide previously abandoned after a routine mission gave way to perjury is brought back into the fold by the administration to avoid having him spill his guts to the feds to avoid imprisonment. There was a time when Lewis “Scooter” Libby was the best character assassin in the administration, but after being convicted due to sloppiness, the justice system attempted to punish him without special consideration. Under threat of being located to a remote minimum security facility, high profile government officials commute Scooter from serving his sentence in order to prevent special knowledge in his possession from falling into the wrong hands. Scooter is enticed back into the fold in order to stop a determined Congress from legally taking out the President of the United States. In the process of carrying out his mission, however, Scooter suddenly realizes that he has not been completely vindicated when he becomes the subject both of nationwide ridicule, and a concerted effort to have him completely pardoned. Now vetted and desperate to conceal the culprits behind the conspiracy as time runs out, Scooter sets into motion a disinformation and public relations plan that will send waves of nausea rippling through some of the most powerful and well-intentioned leaders of the Democratic Party. George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Karl Rove costar in this conspiracy-driven inaction thriller that asks what it truly means to save one’s country. ~ Dood Abides, Dood’s Movie Guide
