Michael Moore gets more cynical by the day:

When Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told the [Republican National Convention] delegates about “a disingenuous film maker who would have us believe that Saddam’s Iraq was an oasis of peace,” they knew he was referring to the maker of “Fahrenheit 9-11.”

Asked about McCain’s remarks, Moore said, “I can’t believe they’re dumb enough to bring up the film and help its box office.”

But Mikey, I thought profit motive was a bad thing according to your ideology. Oh right, profits made by you are good. Profits made by any other rich white guys are bad. Oops, sorry, so hard to keep it all straight.

Harry Potter and George Bush

Damian Penny links to a post by James Lileks talking about how the theme of many Democrats these days is that terrorism is invented; George Bush is the only threat: As Teddy Kennedy said in his convention speech: “The only thing we have to fear is four more years of George Bush.” It’s really quite […]

Michael Moore’s latest fan

07.28.2004

Osama Bin Laden’s half-brother liked “Farenheit 9/11” – though even he thinks that Moore is full of shit: “It’s a moving film,” Yeslam Binladin, a Geneva-based tycoon and one of the al-Qaida leader’s 54 siblings, said in an interview with the French magazine VSD. “I even laughed at times,” said Binladin, adding, “but a lot […]

It’s official: Moore is off his rocker

07.21.2004

Tim Blair has the latest evidence of idiotarian-extraordinaire Michael Moore’s twisted view of the world: In his 2003 book “Dude, Where’s My Country,” Moore expresses sympathy with the Palestinians who danced in the streets to celebrate the fall of the World Trade Center: after all, America supports Israel, which kills innocent Palestinian children. Then, he […]

Michael Moore hates America

06.06.2004

Michael Moore would do well to remember the old axiom: What goes around comes around: Twin Cities filmmaker Mike Wilson’s upcoming “Michael Moore Hates America” details his unsuccessful attempts to interview Moore, the director who won an Oscar two years ago for “Bowling for Columbine.” Moore’s earlier film, “Roger and Me,” detailed his own failed […]

Fahrenheit 9/11

Liar, liar

05.06.2004

In a not-so-shocking twist, turns out Michael Moore made up the whole thing as a publicity stunt (via Damian Penny): Dissecting the current dust-up, it seems clear that Disney never intended to distribute Moore’s film. Maybe the Mousketeers are cowards, but at least they are consistent. And Moore is whining now only to hype the […]

Moore film gets the axe

05.05.2004

Disney’s Miramax Films is refusing to distrubute Michael Moore’s new movie: Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which criticizes President Bush’s handling of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and connects the Bush family with Osama bin Laden’s, won’t be released through Miramax Films on orders from parent company Disney. Disney chief executive Michael Eisner said Wednesday the […]
