DISNEY AND EISNER'S 'FAHRENHEIT 9/11' GOOF

Disney CEO Michael Eisner may have definitively answered the question of whether he's a man or a mouse with his bungling of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11."

The film that criticizes Bush and his incompetent administration took in $21.8 million its opening weekend on its way to a potential $100 million at the U.S. box office, the New York Daily News reported.

This, in spite of the fact it played on only 868 screens. The No. 2 "White Chicks" opened on 2,726 screens.

"I fault Disney for passing on it -- and I'm a Republican," said entertainment analyst Robert Routh of Natexis Bleichroeder, noting that Disney spent $95 million on "The Alamo" and it has grossed a paltry $22.1 million since its release nearly three months ago.

Combined with sales of former President Bill Clinton's autobiography approaching $1 million, it may be that the American public's long, complacent slumber is finally coming to an end.
