Another Reason To Like WATCHMEN

Simply put, because ultraconservative loon (and rabid Islamophobe) Debbie Schlussel doesn't.

My favorite piece of her foaming "evisceration" of the movie is this gem:
It's 1985 and Nixon is President. We've won in Vietnam. Oh, and Henry Kissinger has a Russian accent. And Ronald Reagan is thinking of running for President in 1988. Wow, isn't that cool that they got it wrong on purpose? I'm so amazed at this "high-brow art" of deliberately getting dates and timelines wrong, you know, just to be "artistic," and get the drooling of the critics. That is sooooo genius. Like way totally cool.
Aaaaand there goes the point, whizzing several miles above Ms. Schlussel's head, doing a figure eight in midair and skywriting as it goes.

Yeah, when I first read that, I wasn't sure what she was complaining about, either? Did she really not get the concept of Alternative History? Dumb broad.
