Further Thoughts on Wayne Llewellyn, President of Distribution at Paramount

From today’s New York Times:

Wayne Llewellyn, the president of distribution at Paramount, said that the conservative ethos reflected in last week’s election results might have hurt [Alfie].
“It could be the mood of the country right now,” he said. “It seems to be the result of the election.”

But Alfie’s lackluster o.b.o. wasn’t the only thing to come out of this election. A look at some of November 2nd’s lesser publicized consequences:
DVD sales of Farenheit 911 dropped significantly.
The third season of Reno 911? Totally put on hold.
Jonathan Safran Foer’s drunken boast – “I’m so getting out of this fascist country” – now repeated ad infinitum to friends.
David Blaine’s healing powers significantly diminished. Street magic, however, is promised to continue.
I might have, just totally randomly, you know, just hooked up with this other girl, but it totally stopped before, you know… I can’t believe this election.
Syria? That shit’s on.
And remember how I said you should move in with me? It’s just that after this whole election thing, I don’t know if that’s really a great idea. In light of the election.
John Kerry unlikely to become President on January 20. American government largely overrun by crypto-fascist evangelicals.
I’m in love with someone else. Election.
