Celebrity Divorce Notes: Detroit’s Bankrupt, But Michael Moore’s Just Fine
PJ Media ^ | July 20, 2013 | Roger L. Simon

Posted on 07/20/2013 5:47:46 PM PDT by Kaslin

Entertainment sites like E! Online and Show Biz 411 were aflutter today with the news that filmmaker Michael Moore has filed for a divorce to end his 21-year marriage to Kathleen Glynn. Glynn was also a collaborator/producer on many of Moore’s films.

Roger Friedman at Show Biz 411 is especially saddened by this event. I can’t say I am. To me Moore is one of the most hypocritical people of our time, someone who has lied and distorted his way to a net worth of $50 million while the citizens of Detroit, one hour’s drive from his sainted Flint, survive under horrifying Third World conditions (40% of their traffic lights don’t work!) in a now bankrupt city.

Meanwhile, the supposedly working class Moore has hired a “powerful lawyer,” according to Friedman’s article, no doubt to protect his share of his gigantic fortune.

It will be interesting to see how Glynn deals with this. She undoubtedly has a lot of interesting things to say, if she decides to open up. Moore has a long history of two-facedness, going back to his early television days when he tried to prevent young writers working for him from joining the Writers Guild. (Imagine that — the great progressive is anti-union.)

Indeed, Moore has always been the true face of contemporary progressivism, a meticulously constructed lie to the self and others, writ large. You are what you say you are, even if your actions are in complete contradiction to it. It is the politics of self-congratulation and Moore was, maybe still is, a master of it. This self-deceiving posturing may be conscious or unconscious or both, but it comes down to politics as a guilt-free get rich quick scheme cum power grab. Never mind the facts.

This emerges in Moore’s films, all of which are filled with inconsistencies and prevarications that have been well-documented. Having visited Cuba myself, his “documentary” on their healthcare system was particularly absurd, not to mention hugely insulting to millions of Cubans suffering under totalitarianism.

Until recently, however, these deceptions didn’t seem to bother the public who flocked to his films. That has been changing in recent years and perhaps the divorce is related to this.

Moore, not surprisingly, is the one who has filed. No response thus far for Glynn.

In a world of serious issues like Benghazi and the IRS, I am embarrassed to say I am fascinated by this, but I am. Perhaps, it is my little bit of schadenfreude.

Will the porcine Moore emerge shortly in the company of a much younger chickie? That would be a spectacle. Or is Glynn the one who destroyed the marriage? What’s John Edwards been doing lately?

We shall see — or we won’t.

the wife is also a brain-dead lib, not only did she collaborate on his films but gasp..she married him. Then again, I love seeing liberals suffer so let the bankruptcy begin.

My wager: Moore’s next wife is an Asian chick. And btw I googled the wife, she’s no Sophia Loren, let’s put it that way. I don’t think she can score John Edwards, or even Al Gore; sorry Ms. Glynn, but do get as much of the “community property” as you can.

Also, I don’t really get the headline/title of this piece. I mean I know Moore has plenty of dough, but he just sued his wife for divorce, I imagine he’s rather miserable; which pleases me.

I don't think she could say anything that would shame him. I don't think he has the capacity for shame.

It’s hard to pick a side here.

If she collaborated with Moore she is as big a POS as he is

I still hope she cleans his clock for him.

A couple of things, I am sure no adultary was involved as bot are as ugly as a bag of puke, and each will need big money if they expect to have sex again with anyone.

He resides in Michigan which is a no fault divorce state. She according to divorce books say she is entitled to half of all assets.

People like him worth $50 million? That’s why I believe the government pays these idiots to spout their BS. Think Al Gore.

By the way, not trying to hijack a thread, but I read that Kathy Mattea travels around introducing Gore’s film AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH. Very sad.

I’m still trying to get my mind around the fact that a person who makes a film condemning capitalism is himself a wealthy capitalist. I don’t know if you could find a bigger hypocrite that Michael Moore. If they gave awards for hypocrisy and lying, Moore would be the champion hands down every year.

I’m torn. On the one hand, she should get nothing for marrying and working with him. Something seriously wrong with her. On the hand, take that POS to the bank!

I cannot help but see how well this article's description of Moore fits this article about leftist leaders in general:

This reminds me of the Iran / Iraq War.

The Israelis didn’t know who they should cheer, so they decided they were happy to watch both sides knock the stuffing out of each other.

Same situation here with the moonbat Moores.
