Gee, I Wonder What Could Be Wrong?

It seems that Hollywood is having a little trouble. Apparently, they are in their "longest modern box office slump." From Associated Press:

LOS ANGELES - "Batman Begins" took in $26.8 million to remain the top movie for the second straight weekend, but it could not keep Hollywood from sinking to its longest modern box-office slump.

Overall business tumbled despite a rush of familiar new titles — "Bewitched," a "Love Bug" update and the latest zombie tale from director George Romero.

Revenues for the top 12 movies came in at $116.5 million, down 16 percent from the same weekend last year, when "Fahrenheit 9/11" opened as the top movie with $23.9 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Well, let's see. By my calculations 18 weeks takes us back to mid-February; the period in the immediate aftermath of the Iraqi elections, when it was proven true once and for all, that the Iraq War was about establishing Democracy, and not about stealing oil.

Soon after, the Lebanese people took to the streets and demanded their freedom as well, proving that the "Neocon" strategy of confronting Islamofascism would yield positive results. In addition, we remember those were the days that brought home the reality that people on the left thought it was humane to starve a woman (Terri Schiavo) to death because she couldn't pronounce their name.

Back in those days, I was writing posts like this:

After the past two years of leftists telling us that we have no business in Iraq, that Saddam wasn't that bad, that Iraqi's are not ready for Democracy, that Iraqi's don't really want to be free, and all manner of other hateful idiocy, I believe that today is the day that we should be receiving an apology.
I'm not holding my breath, however, because being Left means never having to say you're sorry. They didn't apologize for their support of Stalin, they didn't apologize for their maligning of Ronal Reagan, and they will not apologize for what they have done since 9/11.

And this:

I Will Not Forgive The Democratic Party For What They Have Done
Tear down the wall. The Witch is dead. The Democratic Party is done.
Michael Moore and Jimmy Carter need to be relegated to the dustbins of history. A new party needs to be constituted to represent those of us who lean more to the liberal side. I will never vote for a "Democrat" again in my lifetime.
Yesterday was for celebrating. Today is for my anger at being ABANDONED by the Democratic Party.

Given that Hollywood so clearly represents the lefts point-of-view, do you think maybe many people feel, as I do, that they no longer want to support Hollywood?

Gee, do you think?
