Going Galt AND IT’S ONLY PART 1!!!1!

Roy has the preview of Atlas Shrugged up over at his place. The comments are hilarious, as you would expect.

Also, tweeted by @driftglass:

1,000 pages of Bad Science Fiction about sock-puppets stabbing strawmen with tax cuts.

It's the new Wolverines!!!1!

[Added] More goodness from TBogg and his commenters. LOL @ gbear:

Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking flakes on this motherfucking train!

[Added2] Susan of Texas, in comments at Roy's, speaks of the man behind the movie:

What's really awsome is that some Objectivist businessman, John Aglialoro, put up all the money himself--$10-15 million, plus marketing. And he co-wrote the screenplay (!) .. So this is a labor of love and will probablybe exactly like the boring, unreadable book.

A quick Google on Agliaro yielded this bit of delicious reminder:

Susan Paris: Is Angelina Jolie firmly committed to the project?

John Aglialoro: Yes, she is. Here is what she told us: “Dagny Taggart is the most relatable character to me of all the extensive literature I have ever read.”

SP: Has she signed a contract?

Aglialoro: We have a letter of intent.
