No More Jefferson Smiths

I saw "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" on TV for the umpteenth time, and in this article Michael Goodwin mourns the lack of such decent men.
"The health-care debacle alone would make a classic Capra morality tale. The naked vote-buying that enabled Reid to get 60 was the very sort of insider corruption the three-time Oscar-winner despised. His reel heroes, including Jimmy Stewart, Jean Arthur, Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck, would be denouncing the bill as crooked and stacked against honest, ordinary Americans."
