It is may of 2001 in a pre 9-11 world. Arthur Lieberman (Sam Seder), a ne'er do well tennis instructor from West Palm Beach, is the son of losing Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman. Arthur is so crazy that six months later he is still upset over the fraudulent 2000 presidential election. In an attempt to keep Arthur from 'making waves', his father strikes a corrupt deal to land him a fancy co-op apartment in New York City.
Arthur's desperation for relevance and burning desire to appear on The Charlie Rose Show lead him to start an 'intellectual salon'. There, Arthur pleads with misfits, sluts, and drinks (Sarah Silverman, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Ross Brockley) to vote him president of their group. Soon, Arthur is unwittingly inculcated by two radical Jewish zealot postal workers (H. Jon Benjamin, Marc Maron) to commit a terrorist attack. Hilarity ensues.
This film was entirely written and shot by June of 2001.
Second DVD features 2 hours of extras and a pre-Colbert Report Stephen Colbert.
