image for Conversion of a Liberal Tops Box Office Records

Hollywood CA: Universal Studios grossed $150 million over the weekend with its new smash hit motion picture "Conversion of a Liberal."

The movie is based upon the fictional novel by Ronald Wilson Goldwater that claims to be an unauthorized biography of Hillary Pelosi Franken. The critics are saying "that once in 50 years does such a tender story come along that is further enhanced by the silver screen."

Initially this is a modern day "Love Story" of two well off college sweethearts who meet at UC Berkley and attend liberal cause protest meetings. Hillary Pelosi and Harry Franken are then married after completion of college. Harry is the only heir to the Franken Bank and Trust Company (FB&TC), a multi billion dollar Minnesota based banking empire.

Together Hillary and Harry pursue any and all liberal causes that are taxpayer funded, encompassing Presidents LBJ, Carter and Clinton terms in office, designated as "those happy years." Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Bush(s) terms in office became known as "those angst years." H and H become recognized figures in the liberal protest world.

Somewhere during all the protests and rallies Harry has a vision of "Shangri-La" and runs off to Tibet to become a Lama. Hillary Pelosi Franken morphs into a "Devil Wears Prada" type woman and takes over the management of FB&TC. FB&TC by virtue of being a leader in sub-prime mortgage transactions adds more billions of dollars to their coffers, which Hillary gives to charity and is subsequently invested in a Ponzi scheme.

Tragedy then strikes again in the form of the recession of 2008. FB&TC collapses, even with the federal bailout money provided by the Obama Administration in 2009. Hillary Pelosi Franken has to take a minimum wage job to have any money. For the first time in her life she must pay her own taxes, without the benefit of CPAs and lawyers. She discovers there is FICA, federal income tax, state income tax, death tax, sugar tax, cap and trade tax, health care tax, estate tax, property tax, soda tax, salt tax, sales tax, Marijuana tax and possibly a VAT.

Hillary Pelosi Franken then has an epiphany and joins the Republican Party.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
