The DVD for the movie Mountain Men, The was released on June 18, 2002 by Sony Pictures and is rated R.

Plot

Bill Tyler (Charlton Heston) and Henry Frapp (Brian Keith), two older beaver trappers in the Rocky Mountains, find their lives in danger when they encounter Running Moon (Victoria Racimo), a beautiful Blackfoot runaway. Tyler wants no part of her, however she takes him as her own--which angers her true mate, Heavy Eagle (Steven Macht), the powerful local Blackfoot chief.

Comments

I don't think it's r
I don't think it's right or useful to hang McCain's taticcs on Hillary Clinton. The vulnerability was there; Republicans were prepared to attack it long before Obama won the nomination.Republicans, since Nixon at least, have always always always always attacked the Democratic nominee's character. He is weak, he is disloyal, he is not one of us,' he is an elitist, he is not a real' American, he snubbed the troops,' he is dangerous, and so on and so on and so on and so on.In every election, including Clinton vs. Bush, the patriotism and character of the Democratic nominee were attacked. The difference in Clinton vs. Bush is that, if I recall correctly, Clinton called out Bush on it during a debate. He addressed the point head on.I do not know why the Democrats do not attack the character and fitness to serve of the Republican candidates. They just don't.Not to bring up an old worn chestnut, but if he had been a Democratic candidate, Bush's failure to complete his National Guard service would have eliminated him very early in the nomination process. It would have been blanket coverage and the lack of documents to back up his version of events would have been taken as proof of his guilt. Cf. Kerry and the Swift-Boaters.Obama and the Democrats are in a position to dramatically alter the make-up of the national government. They have many advantages in their favor and the Republicans have many weaknesses.But for some reason they are not exploiting these with the vigor necessary to punch the message through the haze of the corporate press/media's flacking for McCain, and into the minds of the voters.I do not understand it and I know I am not alone in this. If there is an explanation that makes sense, I'd sure like to hear it.
