Is “Watchmen” conservative? Not really. Author Alan Moore is an anarchist who frequently excoriates conservatives in interviews. And the movie doesn’t stake out a clearly defined political position. But if the news media were as harsh on both sides of the political aisle as “Watchmen” is, Republicans would never lose an election. More in my Sunday column.
And thanks to libertarian anarcho-capitalist comic book maven Todd Seavey for his input. He thinks the soothing, alternative fuel-promoting, action-figure hawking Ozymandias (who, obviously, was dreamed up long before Obama came on the political scene) has a touch of our new president about him.
