Who is the White Witch?

For pure comedic value I present the following Letter to the Editor from this morning's Sentinel. I don't even know the writer but she is destined for induction into Pat Campbell's Pantheon for delusional Madmen.

I just saw a movie about an evil ruler who held a country in its grip.

The citizens in this country were bitterly divided between those who supported the government and those who opposed it. Dissenters were afraid to speak out for fear of being labeled traitors, while Loyalists believed the government should be able to spy on its citizens in the name of national security.

Those suspected of being traitors to the state could be judged by the government, without the benefit of a trial by their peers, and spirited away to an undisclosed location where they were tortured. The loyalists earned special favors from the dictator, while the rest of the citizens yearned for a time when once again their leaders would support justice and the rule of law. In this movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, the White Witch is the bad guy. Too bad the Christian right has lined up behind the bad guy in real life.
