Independence Day Wry-ku*



Paul Giamatti

Sideways from Big Momma's House

You found John Adams


* Inspired by true events.  The post immediately below about a man arrested wearing fake boobs, Leezer's Historical Haiku, and made easier by the common denominator:  An actor with a five-syllable name.

Wryter! This is a post wryte up my alley!

Paul made a most splendid John Adams, n'est pas? And I loved the dude who played Washington, though I remember him only from his St. Elsewhere days.

Giamati gave life to Adams' tendency toward martyrdom and his Nixonian-lament, "I'll never be a matinee idol. . . ."

Wright you are! Adams' insecurities being matched up with his abilities were endearing. And let's not forget Hamilton! The first American politician with a sex scandal, and who had more influence in how our country operates than Master J.A. and Jazzy Jeff. Hammie knew how to get it done, and throw in a sex scandal or two, to boot! Lousy shot, though.
