Via the spring movie preview in Entertainment Weekly, we get a sense of how we look to the rest of the world after six-plus years of Bush from this synopsis of a forthcoming British film:

There was no shortage of casualties in 2002's 28 Days Later, Danny Boyle's surprise hit about a plague-stricken Britain where almost the entire population had been transformed into blood-soaked psychopaths -- or been chewed to death by them....

28 Weeks Later takes place six months after the last of the "infected" have died off and stars Robert Carlyle as a survivor who is reunited with his two children in London as the city is repopulated with the help of U.S. troops.... "Well, what happens, of course, is the disease comes back," says [producer Andrew] Macdonald. "And it gets out of control, and the Americans just say, 'Kill everybody.' First of all they shoot the infected, then they shoot everybody, and then they firebomb them with napalm, and then gas them with chemical weapons." ...

I believe this is what Dick Cheney would describe as "porn."
