The Miserable Failure Michael Moore is a total moron. He won an Oscar last year for documentary (which alone should tell you that the Oscars are a worthless), and now thinks he is a legitimate commentator of the news. Saddam Hussein was more a legitimate leader of Iraq than Moore is a legitmate “docomentarian”.
First I want to congratulate him on his endorsement of Clark. The Miserable Failure said on his web-site:
I have decided to cast my vote in the primary for Wesley Clark. That’s right, a peacenik is voting for a general. What a country!
I believe that Wesley Clark will end this war. He will make the rich pay their fair share of taxes. He will stand up for the rights of women, African Americans, and the working people of this country.
And he will cream George W. Bush.
Cream GW? How can he cream him when he drops out of the race? HMMMM? How can he do that? Tell me the logistics of that? You’re so intelllectually superior to everyone else.
Besides; the fact is that Bush does look out for African Americans and minorities. His cabinet is filled with people of color and his nonimations to the courts also show that. It’s Moore’s party which keeps minorities down by telling them they need the government to help them. Comments like calling the nominees “Neanderthals” don’t help.
Anyways Clark is gone, and like Gore, Moore’s endorsement didn’t amount to a hill of beans.
Gen. Clark has decided to leave the race,” said Clark spokesman Matt Bennett. “I think probably the biggest reason is the tremendous momentum that Senator Kerry built coming out of the Iowa and New Hampshire races.”
“The mountain got too steep to climb.”
On his website on February 11, he is also discussing the papers released by the White House yesterday detailing President Bush’s military record.
I find it amusing that he, to my memory, ever criticized Clinton for bailing on service alltogether. Clinton went to England and penned nasty letters about despising the military and Vietnam.
Moore does try to answer the question here:
THAT is what makes this whole business of you being AWOL so despicable, and makes the grief-stricken relatives want to turn away from you in disgust. The reason your skipping-out on your enlistment didn’t matter in the 2000 election was because we were not at war. Being stuck in a deadly, daily quagmire now in 2004 makes your military history-fiction and your fly-boy costume VERY relevant.
So I guess if a President like Clinton didn’t serve, or a President like Bush is accused of not serving completely, it’s okay as long as we don’t go to war. So I guess we can be attacked, our citizens murdured and we can’t act because our President didn’t serve.
I guess if we DID have Gore as President it would be okay to go to Iraq because he carried a camera in Vietnam.
But he served.
