The Big Buy: Coming to a house party near you

A couple of Texas filmmakers have produced a movie called "The Big Buy: How Tom DeLay Stole Congress," and Robert Greenwald and his Brave New Films (Outfoxed, the Walmart movie, etc.) are on tap to promote and distribute it.

The New York Times writes it up in this morning's paper.

I had the good fortune to see an early rough cut last fall, and it's not your typical political movie. While the rough cut tries hard to squeeze everything into the "cops and robbers" framework, I understand a few more political moments are added -- including a clip of convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff telling a crowd of College Republicans that Tom DeLay is someone they should be like when they grow up as an introduction to the Majority Leader.

You can purchase a DVD or sign up to host a screening at their website... I just signed up myself...
