Political Villains

An impending remake by David Fincher of the British political-intrigue series House of Cards could help, just a tiny bit.  It's as anti-government as Atlas Shrugged, in its way.

Imagine if Hollywood suddenly woke up to the fact that politicians and bureaucrats (not to mention a lot of pundits) are Machiavellian scum and thus provide plenty of fodder for drama.  And politician characters have plenty of time to scheme because, unlike business people, they do not have any productive work to do.  It's all drama and lies with politicians.
