The Washington Post’s gossip girls are trashing President Bush again, this time featuring a liberal artist who was “nauseated” by an invitation to create an ornament for this year’s official White House Christmas tree

A culture war of sorts played out this weekend at the box office, and liberal comedian Bill Maher’s in-your-face assault on religious faith lost. Despite heavy promotion from a fawning media establishment, Maher’s film Religulous came in a disappointing No. 10 in its opening weekend.

One would expect that a “niche” film like Religulous couldn’t compete head-to-head with a Disney release, and that’s just what happened. Disney’s Beverly Hills Chihuahua cleaned up with a weekend box office gross of $29 million.

But Religulous also lost out - soundly - to another niche film, (more…)
