Mickey Mouse joins team Rove

Jonathan at Tiny Revolution notes a telling incongruity in boardrooms the Magic Kingdom:


So..."The Path to 9/11" cost $30 million and was written and directed by conservative ideologues. Factually speaking, it's predictably craptastic. And yet Disney is glad to lose at least $30 million on it. By contrast, this was Disney's treatment of another political movie—one that eventually grossed over $200 million...
Which one? Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, of course. At the time Disney refused to distribute Moore's film because they didn't want to sully their fans' beautiful minds with politics, any politics.

As Digby notes, Disney has no compunctions about The Path to 9/11, the a hard right propaganda screed. Read the whole thing!
