Harvey Weinstein Fashions Faux Mitt Romney Trailer

This afternoon, Harvey Weinstein has shared on The Huffington Post the kind of entry that brings back memories of the website’s earliest beginnings. Before the AOL acquisition, before the New York conference room SEO nanosecond expertise, before the third-party content mirroring, it was just Arianna Huffington’s celebrity friends posting their random observations.

Folks like Weinstein, who follows up last night’s lively appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight with a faux trailer for the Mitt Romney drama Hindsight. This Democratic ditty was put together with the help of John Stockwell, Meghan O’Hara and Weinstein’s Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper.

For good measure, there’s also some soundtrack assistance from Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. Enjoy or – as several already have in the HuffPo comments – dismiss.
