Annette Benning sure was cute, though

Westword editor Patty Calhoun on the trial of the Columbus Day protesters:

Throughout the trial, [Denver County Court Judge Claudia] Jordan's courtroom had been crowded — not just with physical bodies, but with references to MLK, Hitler, Mayor John Hickenlooper, who'd called the MLK marchers "administrators
of democracy," and even Michael Douglas in The American President, as quoted by the city attorney. But in the end, what swayed the jury was not the specter of celebrity, but the letter of the law.
Michael Douglas in The American President? The only line of his I can remember from that movie is, "We're going to get the guns."
