Witherspoon's character Tracy Flick is an "anal-retentive go-getter who will stop at nothing to win her student council election. She generates an onslaught of huge posters, buttons, and customized cupcakes all bearing her special slogan in big, bold capital letters: Pick Flick, which is Tracy's trademark". She is usually the only student running for the council presidency (sound familiar?) and when another student candidate is put forward by a teacher, who at once hates her and is strangely attracted to her, she resorts to a dirty campaign of lies and tricks to eliminate her opponent and anyone else getting in her way.
If you haven't yet seen it, I suggest you borrow/rent/steal a copy as soon as you can; Reese Witherspoon's amazing performance has been voted #45 of The 100 Greatest Performances of All Time in Premiere Magazine.
For those of you who have seen this terrific film, I'm sure you can draw your own parallels with many of Kuwait's MPs and candidates who ran their own recent campaigns straight out of the Tracy Flick handbook.
So who do you think is/was Kuwait's Tracy Flick?
