Thursday feature: A turn to lighter fare

By Jennifer Rubin

In our Thursday feature, we ask prominent conservatives a nonpolitical question. Last week we asked about their ideal weekend.

This week we ask: What is your favorite movie?

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell: "'Rudy' or 'The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.'"

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.): "'The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly.'"

Dana Perino (former White House press secretary, now a Republican consultant): "I missed almost every movie that came out in the first decade of the century due to work commitments, but I did see 'Love Actually,' and it remains the only movie I own."

Tucker Carlson (Daily Caller's editor in chief): "'This is Spinal Tap.'"

Peter Robinson (former Reagan speechwriter, Hoover Institute fellow, founder of "Anything released in that astonishing year of 1939, including 'Gone with the Wind,' 'The Wizard of Oz,' 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,' 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Goodbye, Mr. Chips.'"

Stephen Hayes (senior writer at the Weekly Standard): "'Airplane.'"

I think 1967 was the year CBS was short on programming and broadcast movies for 2, maybe 3 nights a week. So as a pre-pubescent I first encountered these movies, and hence they pull at my heartstrings enough to still enjoy seeing them again, just not too often: The African Queen, Where the Boys Are, and, wait for it, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Go ahead and laugh, but that Connie Francis does something to me. Teddy, ohhhh... Teddy!!
