I said Souter, not Scalia, but Souter and Scalia tied so I'm still ahead of you by one point.

Don't worry -- if there's one thing that I've learned about sheep from all the times we've played it in Video Game Talk, it's that the standings will change a lot over the course of the game.

Nooooooooooooo. I totally blanked on Fahrenheit 911.

I even considered Roger and Me and I couldn't think of 911? I don't deserve to retain my title as the Buffalo Bills of Sheep.

My first answer was Fog of War but I realized I only was answering that way because I like that film so much.

Damnit, I thought of Fahrenheit 911 but it didn't seem recent enough.

I'm really screwed on this one, I just figured everyone would more or less pick a random movie - like I did.

Don't fret. There are only two confirmed picks for it.

Although my answer was a joke.

I picked Clinton for easiest administration. For some reason I forgot about Monica Lewinsky.

I picked Fahrenheit as well.

I was about to pick Clinton and then remembered Lewinsky and switched to Ike.

What country that has a peaceful American military presence? I could not come up with an answer that this forum would like. I thought of Saudi Arabia, Germany, and the Phillipines, but went with Japan.

"Peaceful" doesn't make the news.

Lewinsky was nothing. Just a pesky impeachment I forgot about. Man, I really may have misjudged this group.

Me three.

I think I really screwed the pooch on the dead non-American. I went with Hitler. Not because his ideas are really discussed but I figured with Godwin's Law/Reductio ad Hitlerum it might be a popular answer. Just like everyone assumed other people like to bash France they would assume everyone invokes Hitler/Nazism when debating.

I said Marx because Obama is a Marxist and I've heard all kinds of Marx references over the past 4 months.

Oh yeah, atheists are Marxists too.

I had Eisenhower adminstration, S. Korea, and a more carbon blobish answer for film - The American President. I totally forgot about F-451. I forgot how much that's hated and loved.
