Apparently, Everyone is as Tired of This as I am.

Note: When I responded to CW's invite to this awesome news group, I let her know that my attention span was more inclined to cover "News" than, you know, News. You have been warned.

Can I tell you how happy I am about this?

"We felt it was very important to release the film after the presidential debates but before the election," Rothenberg said. "We felt interest in the election would be at its height, and interest in George W. Bush would be much greater now than after January. We feel we have a good corridor over the next two weeks."

(Or not.)

Politics aside, my hatred of Oliver Stone movies aside, the simple fact that America would rather see Chihuahuas or Marky Mark than W. makes me extraordinarily happy. Because it proves to me that I am not the only one who is SO STINKING SICK OF POLITICS.

I can't think of a guy I less want to see a movie about right now than W.

I mean, HELLO, his approval rate is 24%. That's so low it's painful for ME to see.

The movies are where we go to escape life, not to be reminded about a guy that 75% of America would prefer jump in a lake.

Anyone want to go see the Chihuahua movie?

I am taking Jooj to see the Chihuahuas this week. She squeals like a Beehive whenever she sees the commercial.

You know what's sad is to see people (and not just the candidates--the studio, people who are donating to campaigns, I don't know who all else) tossing millions into something we are all SO OVER!

Oh well. Guess that's what the economy needs right now.

But I'm still in that place where I'm thinking, "They actaully made a movie about Chihuahuas?"

That said, I cannot believe for one second that the motivation behind the timing of the release was purely financial.

Not for one second.

I would much rather see a movie with Mark Walberg in it. (sorry can't remember how to spell his last name) as opposed to yet another rehashing of Bush.

I'm with you wondering that they could actually make a movie about chihuahuas.

The movie selctions confirm my decision to avoid most box-office movies.
