Whoops. Spoke too soon

On December 8, 2004, fat Willie Donohue declared Mission Accomplished:
We've already won. Who really cares what Hollywood thinks? All these hacks come out there. Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It's not a secret, okay? And I'm not afraid to say it. ... Hollywood likes anal sex. They like to see the public square without nativity scenes. I like families. I like children. They like abortions. I believe in traditional values and restraint. They believe in libertinism. We have nothing in common. But you know what? The culture war has been ongoing for a long time. Their side has lost.
But if the victory was complete, and the enemy was vanquished, why is William Donohue still bothering people? Could it be that his "Mission Accomplished" moment was as bogus as Bushie's? Money quote:

To this end, I am requesting that a disclaimer appear on the screen prior to the start of [The Da Vinci Code ] indicating that the film is purely a work of fiction.

A work of fiction? On a movie screen? In a theatre? No way.

What this means, I guess, is that because no disclaimer was made, Splash was 1000 percent real and mermaids resembling Daryl Hanna (sigh) do, in fact, frolic beneath the waves. (Yay!)
