He nearly hyperventilated before he thrust a microphone into Dick Clark's minivan, buzzed the gate outside Charlton Heston's Beverly Hills mansion and chased then General Motors chairman Roger Smith from yacht club to boardroom.

Still, the filmmaker's and best-selling author's approach has made him a celebrity in his own right.

Moore, 49, credited in Democratic circles for making President George W. Bush's National Guard record a fierce campaign issue, is bigger than ever.

The author got that right, but not in the way he intended.
Moore is a FAT slob.

But the Everyman, a little overweight

And Manute Bol is just a little tall.

Of all his many rolls, I would say the 4 chins rate among the most astounding. How he can get whiskers on every other chin is beyond me.

At an appearance at Michigan State University in late January, Moore took questions after his two-hour talk. A student asked if rumors about him building on a wetland Up North were true.

Silence. Then: "Don't know what you're talking about."


I see that, like most liberals, the rules don't apply to him - only the "little people." Also, like all liberals, he evades the questions that don't suit him.

Someone tell moore the National Guard issue is dead. Has anyone heard anything about it in the last week? Neither have I.

"He fought for fair wages and nuclear plant safety."

What a man. Since there has never been a nuclear plant disaster, I guess we have "the blob" to thank.

Only in America.

He earned Eagle Scout rank for a slide show depicting local polluters.

Seems like someone pushed through an easy project. IIRC, the project is supposed to entail organizing and supervising many people.

Why would michael moore say animals do not have rights? Hungry?

Nope, this way when he uses the propaganda trick of calling the "enemy" nothing more than animals, they have no rights.

Thus is a corporation or an executive is just an animal, he can say they have no rights as he lies about them. Conservatives are animals, thus no rights.

Moore is a commie and he acts, speaks and waddles like a commie.

The many roles of Michael Moore

Considering the subject of the article, shouldn't that read "the many rolls of Michael Moore?"

Isn't there a typo in the title? I thought it was supposed to read 'the many ROLLS of Michael Moore'.

To qualify for the rank of Eagle Scout, one of the required merit badges is Physical Fitness. I seriously doubt Moore has been physically fit even one day in his miserable life. Therefore, I doubt he was ever an Eagle Scout.

Don't the BSA keep records? It should be easy enough to confirm. Otherwise any kook can say they were an eagle scout. (homoactivits would all claim they were "eagle scouts")

I'm sure they keep records that would be easy to confirm. I've never heard the claim made directly by him though, so it would be easy for him to deny ever having made it, especially with a compliant press. Moore has told plenty of whopper sized lies in his films, and with direct proof, never been challenged by the media. When the left lies sucessfully, they get Academy Awards and Nobel Peace Prizes.
