  •  Because the movie was based on the life (5+ / 0-)

    of Hearst. Who also did not drink.
    And may have shot his best friend who he thought was Chaplin flirting with his girl friend.
    I hope the analogy keeps up because Hearst who had more money and power than Mitt could never dream of, he had his own zoo for Pete's sake, ended up bankrupt.

    And I do believe Mitt would be the type of guy who would have a nickname for Ann's lady part.
    You know how Republican's hate the word vagina.

    •  His own zoo? He had his own CASTLE (5+ / 0-)

      for crying out loud!! And not only that, he bought it in Europe, dismantled it and brought it to California, stone by stone. (I remember seeing it when I was a kid in about 1965. It was plenty impressive, I'll give Hearst that.)

    •  Truth is, the outline was a composite of (0+ / 0-)

      a number of obscenely rich men who threw their weight around with their money. Some of the details (mining background, married into politics, lost election, bitter divorce, opera house for his little diva) were actually from Horace A.W. Tabor of Denver.

      But all the newspaper stuff, the castle, and some but not all of the private life details were pure Hearst.

      On the other hand:
      Hearst was never able to marry Marion Davies. She never left him. She was as loyal as "Baby Doe" Tabor, with less reason to be.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
