The Republican Party lost power in 2006 when it forgot to be the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. Forgetting the mantra "Malice toward none and charity to all," "Outrage" is a documentary that exposes the worst sin of politics, hypocrisy.
The hypocrisy featured in this "Outrage" is about closeted gay politicians who vote against the homosexual political agenda. With the exception of former Democratic Governor Jim McGreevey, most of the targets of **Outrage** are closeted Republican power brokers. The tone of "Outrage" lacks the condescension of a Michael Moore documentary.
There is a truthful assertion to "Outrage," yet one must be aware of the subjective bias inherit within the producers of the movie. In particular, the allegations against Governor Charlie Crist of Florida is more circumstantial than revelatory. To director Kirby Dick's credit, he incorporates interviews with both fallen Republican and Democratic leaders.
As for his surreal situation of public service, fallen New Jersey Governor McGreevey refers to the situation as”a bad episode of "Star Trek".”
