To help make sure that Americans can get the cold, unvarnished facts about national savior, Renaissance genius, and supersecret Navy Seal commando Barack Hussein Obama, the president's team is paying for a campaign film by the Oscar-winning director of "An Inconvenient Truth."
In case you don't remember, "An Inconvenient Truth" was the alleged film in which absolutely nothing happened other than a bloated Al Gore giving a powerpoint slideshow saying that every country in the world would simulateously burn up and sink into the oceans...unless they started buying carbon credits from Al Gore Incorporated. And while the science behind Gore's claims is controversial, the film undeniably made an extremely convincing case that Oscars are handed out as pointlessly as Nobel Peace Prizes.
The Obama campaign has already paid $160,000 in initial expenses on the 30 minute film, and may be spending more during the post-production phase... presumably when 3D effects will be added, as well as complex CGI sequences which will show the president in places that he's never actually been... like working at his desk.
Additionally, the film's budget will be stretched thanks to the director's clever re-use of film clips which he previously used in "An Inconvenient Truth." For instance, shots of smoke-belching factories previously subtitled "corporations poison our air" will now be cheerily labeled "Obama is putting Americans back to work!"
While there is no official release date for the film, it is expected to appear in theaters nationwide soon and attract millions of eager viewers.
Not for the film's content, of course, but because the president has issued an executive order mandating that health insurance providers will be required to give away free popcorn.

BONUS! If this isn't the "official" oscar-winning campaign film, it ought to be!
