Organizer/Author
This satirical 1992 mockumentary, chronicles the rise of a conservative politician who is a candidate for an upcoming US Senate election. Bob Roberts (Tim Robbins, who also wrote & directed) is well financed, due mainly to past business dealings, and is well known for his music, which presents conservative ideas with gusto. As a conservative folk singer, he performs songs about drug users, lazy people and the triumph of traditional family values over the rebelliousness of the 1960s. He is running against the incumbent Democrat, Brickley Paiste (Gore Vidal) who is made vulnerable when he is accused of a sex scandal.
