An Intriguing Proposition

So ... many ... people ..!Over at the Atlantic’s website, reformed conservative Andrew Sullivan suggests that the Obama victory doesn’t so much as turn the page on the Bush era as reboot America: “Now,” he writes, “we get our lives back.”

Which may explain why the country flocked to that “Madagascar” sequel in droves over the weekend, pushing it to a staggering $63.5 million box-office tally. I guess people needed the release, huh? Either that, or Ben Stiller truly is a money machine these days.

I bet Sony’s regretting the decision to push “Quantum of Solace” back a week now … imagine the escapism appeal there!
