Bob Roberts (1992)

Mock documentary about an upstart candidate for the U.S. Senate written and directed by actor Tim Robbins. Bob Roberts is a folksinger with a difference: He offers tunes that protest welfare chiselers, liberal whining, and the like. As the filmmakers follow his campaign, Robbins gives needle-sharp insight into the way candidates manipulate the media.

The movie Bob Roberts, released in 1992, features 14 songs from artists like The Chatham College Choir and The Shady Side Men's Choir and Woody Guthrie. What is your favorite song from Bob Roberts?
