Capitalism has no love for Michael Moore, Either

The Hippopotanical Land Mass (aka Michael Moore) is feeling no love from our capitalist society: Even though he opened in twice as many theaters, it appears the "director" couldn't scare up any more interest in his film as Drew Barrymore's "Whip It."

Wait, Drew Barrymore had a movie premiering?

Two entries tied at No. 7: Drew Barrymore's directing debut, "Whip It," and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" each reported about $4.9 million in ticket sales.

"Capitalism" played in almost twice as many theaters as "Whip It," which had been expected to open in the high-single-digit millions ahead of the Gervais comedy.

"Zombieland," bolstered by strong reviews and advance buzz, matched its modest production budget.

None of the movies in the Reuters story had a blockbuster opening, with "Zombieland" the only one grossing over $20 million (which is all the better, considering Hollyweird's obsession with freeing douchebags like Mumia and Polanski and promoting idiots like Moore). But for "Capitalism" to have such a poor opening compared to "Whip It" and other films, especially when it was projected to gross twice as much, is a strong rejection of Moore and his stupidity.

Guess he shouldn't have made that crack about capitalism doing nothing for him.

Ah, well. He can still go back to his big mansion with its massive carbon footprint and the mountain of Hostess Ho-Hos he sleeps on every night, comforted in the fact that the process of garnering wealth by providing a product that somebody wanted to buy never did him any good.

'Cause he wouldn't want to be a hypocrite or anything...

I remember some movie called Whip It. It was really short, and there were a bunch of guys with flowerpots on their heads who cracked a whip and gave the past a slip or something. They whipped a cig out of some cowgirl's lips too. This was before the tobacco demonization started in. Pretty rude for back then. So how could that short movie be released to theaters when it was already on MTV ages ago?

I admit I didn't know Drew Barrymore directed it. Was that back in her 10-year-old-girl club-hopping drunk days?

Why pick on Progressives?

Progressives are neo-barbarian, luddite fools who want to replace all scientific progress with their failed, pseudo-scientific, utopian fairy tale and take us back to the paleolithic period. In other words they are douchebags.

Q: Do you have a problem with Progressive Insurance?

We don't have a problem with their insurance product. But the company is also a major giver of money to politically progressive causes, and because of that the owners and managers are total douchebags.
