#1 Unfortunately the 'average joe' on the street won't know about his lies. Good Morning We Hate America type of shows will be in a more then willing to advertise it as 'the one word of truth' and soddomize the american public with it.

And of course Father Berg, a member of A.N.S.W.E.R. in good standing, will be more then willing to bend over for Moore no matter what it does to his son's image.

#2 The company’s founders, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, personally bought back the rights from parent company Disney, which had refused to distribute it.

Last I heard, Disney owns Miramax along with Walt Disney Pictures and Touchstone Pictures. Its Miramax Film Corp. acquires, produces, and distributes movies under the Miramax and Dimension banners. Disney Pictures has the kid friendly image while Miramax does the grownup films. The Disney-Miramax dichotomy is just a sleight of hand.

#3 When I was out in the field in Western Alaska a few weeks ago, I saw the Michael Moore bit in Cannes on the NBC Today show, with Katie Couric all over the story. I have not seen the show for over a year and I was shocked. BTW, Katie had some heavy makeup over her lips around the mouth, which looked like it was covering some nasty cold sores. I would not wish that on anybody, but somehow it all fit together in a quasi-cosmic way.

#6 AP, I saw Katie the other day and thought to myself that she looked like a walking corpse. Ugh! Katie would have been 'all over' the story (and Jabba himself) I'm sure...

Karma's a bitch aint it?

#7 Like the rest of his tripe. Moore's latest won't make its way out of the art houses. Its impact on public, non-elite opinion will be next to zero. Still he's a scumbag.

#8 11A5S - HBO sure has been playing Bowling for Columbine and A Casualty of War a LOT lately... I figure they'll do their ax-grinding LLL best to see to it every piece of shit MMSFF* ever excretes will get plenty of air time.

Katie is the most self-absorbed LLL shill on TV, IMO. She's AlGore minus the spittle, methinks.

* Michael Moore Sick Fat Fuck

#9 Thanks for setting me straight, dotcom. That's my own blindness showing through. I don't watch much TV. I didn't watch it at all before I got married.

#10 To the tune of "When I'm a Bad Bart." by Gilbert and Sullivan

Young Michael Moore: When I'm making films I will tell taradiddles
Chorus: He'll tell taradiddles when he's making films
YMM: And truth I will kill and with facts I will fiddle
C: With facts he will fiddle and truth he will kill
YMM: You have to be spaced if you'd be concientious
C: To be concientious you have to be spaced.
YMM: So I spit in the face of all morals sententious
C: All morals sententious he spits in the face.
He spits in the face in the face of all morals sententious.
When he's making films he will tell taradiddles
With facts he will fiddle and truth he will kill.
The truth he will kill and with facts he will fiddle
And tell taradiddles when he's making films
When he's making films he will tell taradiddles
With facts he will fiddle and truth he will kill.
The truth he will kill and with facts he will fiddle
And tell taradiddles when he's making films.
When he's making films he will tell taradiddles
With facts he will fiddle and truth he will kill.
The truth he will kill and with facts he will fiddle
And tell taradiddles when he's making films.

BTW, a taradiddle is a lie.

#11 "Hello, this is your God talking to you...."
..."Hold on for a sec.....
HEY JESUS...... can you get me another cold on out of the Fridge!!!..."
"Sorry.....God's allowed to kick back and have a cold one every once and a know"
"Well...where was I????"
"Oh...yeah....As I was saying....I quite agree with you chaps....this michael moore fellow is dangerous." "You know I am the official representative of the United States...and this man poses a threat." Next to Jesus....George Dubbya...been like a second son to me. I know his daddys been a straying back in the 80s....but I saved George Dubbya and I'm mighty proud. Yess'um your God's done some mighty fine work. Well You see this Michael Moore a threat...he's done struck a deal with the devil and risks everything George Dubbya stands for.
Say your prayers sons...
