Michael Moore, in his Christmas Message to his readers, cited a quote by William Rivers Pitt who is best known to the world as one of the perpetrators, along with Jason Leopold and Marc Ash of TruthOut, of the journalistic hoax that Karl Rove had been indicted on May 12, 2006. Here is Moore quoting Pitt who is quoting without attribution Douglas Adams in "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy":
I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas (or a Merry Everything) and hope you are all well today.
Here's a good thought from the writer William Rivers Pitt:
"Before Santa and presents and shopping and all the attendant Christmas (stuff) got involved, this holiday was enshrined to commemorate a guy who got nailed to a tree for daring to tell people to be kind to one another. If you have two cloaks, He said, give one away. Remember those who have less than you, be charitable, be good, be merciful."

I thought this would be Mikey Moore’s message: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu-s-SeigWs
He has a thread on DU bragging about MM printing his “letter”. Gawd some people are stupid.
This is hillarious
After all a really good writer always steals.
Now Michael Moore is using a line taken from a plagiarizer in his Christmas message, that makes light of the true Christmas message. And these people think they're special...
Aw, you beat me to it...
So, Mikey, if you had two hot dogs, would you give one away?
