People thought Columbia Pictures was keeping The da Vinci Code away from critics until the last minute to make it more mysterious. In reality, it’s for the same reason studios keep movies away from critics all the time: it sucks and they knew it. With all the major reviewers in, it’s pulling a Rotten Tomatoes score of 17%. Michael Novak runs down a few of the things that are wrong with it here.

  • For the kid who has everything

    It’s the Terrell Owens Youth Football Camp. I am not making this up, and the jokes really do write themselves. (Incidentally, I agree with the commenters over there – they’ve gotta send the kid who insulted Chris Berman to this thing.)

    Charles’ headline for this is too good to rip off so I won’t, but anyway. The Pallies lost a court case and have to pay big money to the family of suicide bombing victims. They’re now pleading with the judge claiming they have no money. And yet they can afford an endless supply of guns, ammo, and small rockets (one was recently fired towards an Israeli city but hit a chicken coop instead).

    Amir Taheri has good news from Iraq that the MSM really doesn’t want anyone to know.

  • Oh. My. G*d.

    The worst campaign ad ever. Imagine the creepy plastic Burger King, but replace him with creepy plastic Markos “Screw Them” Moulitas. This is the result. Pure horror. Fortunately the Creator of Worlds is ready and armed with Photoshopped and re-edited versions of the commercial.

    Incidentally, this guy is running against Joe Lieberman, but oddly he never mentions Lieberman. It’s wall-to-wall “Bush = Hitler”. I guess this is a new liberal innovation: attack ads that attack politicians who have nothing to do with your race. (ETA: the second ad does mention Lieberman, but it’s still really attacking Bush).

  • Conyers steps into the RNC’s trap

    He says if the Donks get control back this fall he will guarantee lots and lots of interminable investigations of Bush, possibly leading to impeachment.

  • Oops

    The Steelers’ Joey Porter claimed he was gonna be mean to President Bush when the team visits the White House, but apparently the Rooneys (aka the Last Remaining Classy Owners In Sports) got a hold of him because he’s back back back backing up faster than Chris Berman on the whole “Leather” thing.

    I wouldn’t believe this if I hadn’t seen it on FNC this morning: agents are digging up what might be Jimmy Hoffa’s body in Detroit. Chris Muir illustrates.

    A new survey being given to high schoolers asks them how they know they wouldn’t prefer being gay if they haven’t tried it. I am not making this up.
