‘Dr. Strangelove’ meets ‘The Madness of King George’?

The Madness of George Dubya: “(The) idea is very simple: to apply the premise behind Terry Southern’s Strangelove script to a war with Iraq. So we have the crazed head of a US air base in Britain, who regards UN weapons inspectors as “pinko, degenerate subversives”, launching a pre-emptive nuclear strike against Saddam Hussein.

While George Dubya cowers in his bunker clutching his teddy bear, panic ensues in Downing Street. But as the dithering PM finally authorises troops to break into the American base, the US military relish the prospect of all-out nuclear war.” Guardian UK Big hit in the UK; how far off Broadway would it have to be to be tolerable in America?
