You may remember (not that I would know why) that Rick Santorum was hired last winter to be the head of Echolite Studios, a right wing Christian company that was going to make a huge impression on the film world. Well, I'm pleased to announce that their first film, an action-packed epic entitled "The Christmas Candle."
Whoops- it was a huge flop, doing about a million in its first two weeks, after a production cost estimated at about $7 million.

It's about time people realized that what we have here is a few rich people creating a dumb show and then the press (which rich people own) giving it credibility. It's time we moved past this nonsense and started running the country for our own benefit.
