McCain's Favorite Movie?

Elia Kazan's Viva Zapata!

A movie about one of Mexico's most famous peasant revolutionaries whose mission in life was to have land taken from greedy landowners, land that they stole from the largely indigenous peasantry, and then to have this land given back to the indigenous peasantry by government fiat.

Property expropriation, wealth redistribution, class warfare on the side of the peasant workers, and anti-capitalist revolution -- all in Mexico!

Frankly, I love the movie, too!

But somehow I don't think it's gonna sit well with the conservative base!
