Skip to comments.Michael Moore's latest: Kerry a lousy candidate; Filmmaker says Democrats are 'so pathetic'
Posted on 09/21/2004 12:24:18 AM PDT by JohnHuang2
Filmmaker Michael Moore, who makes no secret about his desire for President Bush to lose re-election, is now calling Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry "a lousy candidate," and says the Democratic Party is "pathetic."
"If I hear one more person tell me how lousy a candidate Kerry is and how he can't win," writes Moore, "Dammit [sic], of course he's a lousy candidate he's a Democrat, for heavens sake! That party is so pathetic, they even lose the elections they win!"
The comment is part of an open letter posted on Moore's website, as the director of "Fahrenheit 9/11" tries to rally the anti-Bush forces in the wake of recent polls which suggest a boost for Bush since the Republican convention:
Look at us what a bunch of crybabies. Bush gets a bounce after his convention and you would have thought the Germans had run through Poland again. The Bushies are coming, the Bushies are coming! Yes, they caught Kerry asleep on the Swift Boat thing. Yes, they found the frequency in Dan Rather and ran with it. Suddenly it's like, "THE END IS NEAR! THE SKY IS FALLING!"
No, it is not. If I hear one more person tell me how lousy a candidate Kerry is and how he can't win... Dammit, of COURSE he's a lousy candidate he's a Democrat, for heavens sake! That party is so pathetic, they even lose the elections they win! What were you expecting, Bruce Springsteen heading up the ticket? Bruce would make a helluva president, but guys like him don't run and neither do you or I. People like Kerry run.
Yes, OF COURSE any of us would have run a better, smarter, kick-ass campaign. Of course we would have smacked each and every one of those phony swifty boaty bastards down. But WE are not running for president Kerry is. So quit complaining and work with what we have.
But despite the criticism of Kerry and the Democrats, Moore insists Bush can be defeated at the ballot box Nov. 2.
"Bush is a goner if we all just quit our whining and bellyaching and stop shaking like a bunch of nervous ninnies," continues Moore. "Geez, this is embarrassing! The Republicans are laughing at us. ... It's never over for them until the last ballot is shredded. They are never finished they just keeping moving forward like sharks that never sleep, always pushing, pulling, kicking, blocking, lying."
Moore tells readers it's time for a reality check, and that recent polls showing Bush ahead are not correct.
"They are all over the map like diarrhea," he says, claiming polls based on "likely voters" tend not to include young people who don't have a voting track record.
Moore finishes by issuing a final plea to those who'd like to see the president lose.
"The country is almost back in our hands. Not another negative word until Nov. 3rd! Then you can bitch all you want about how you wish Kerry was still that long-haired kid who once had the courage to stand up for something. Personally, I think that kid is still inside him. Instead of the wailing and gnashing of your teeth, why not hold out a hand to him and help the inner soldier/protester come out and defeat the forces of evil we now so desperately face."
Mike's not as dumb as I thought. Just rotten to the core.
That's the only true thing he's said all year.
Oh, he's quite dumb if he thinks the GOP is the party of sharks and ballot-shredding.
He's always made ridiculous statements, this is just another in a long line of them.
I think Moore should run for president in 2008 on the democratic ticket.
Guess I didn't read far enough. Oh well.
Didn't this fool say Wesley Clarke would 0wn Bush? HAHAHAH
The Democrats are pathetic, Mike is dumb, his fans are dumb. It's no wonder they're all lopped together.
The reason he speaks of democrats in the third person is that Moore himself is a Communist with a capital c.
Michael Moore doesn't like the Democrats. He just hates Bush, conservatives, and Republicans. That pretty much includes every capitalist in this country... because Michael Moore is probably a Socialist/Communist.
Probably a socialist? This guy is an admitted full fledged communist.
Funny, how he's living it up, and yet claiming to be a communist.
Michael Moore and the Dims? Pot. Kettle. Black.
Was that a gurgle from Moore's fat a** I just heard?
What a maroon. Who can he name as a friend? Oh yeah, he was looking in the mirror during his comment on evil.
I say "probably" because he's not acting like a Communist or a Socialist. He doesn't spread around his wealth, hasn't set up charities, and for the most part acts like a Capitalist Pig. ;-)
He's about as Communist as Osama is Muslim. Mostly in name, paying lip service to the creeds, and totally hating America.
I wonder if Mr. Moore eats for comfort. Does anyone know what brand of pizza he favors? I was thinking about buying stock.
M&M is not dumb. He's a snake oil salesman, very good at it and rich because it. There's a sucker born every minute. DO NOT be suckered into to thinking he's moving to our side or having a change of heart. He'd saell his mother if he could.
Less is Moore, the phucker.
It is so much easier being a moral Republican. I know who I am voting for and why.
Indeed, if memory serves, he all but admitted it on CNN not long ago.
Is he gonna take his ball of lard and go home?
I emailed him and said I'm out of work, and asked if he'll send money and when I can expect the check.
Truth too. He's a communist with others' money though, as he's proven.
ROFL, did you really?
Scary, the idea of our country in their hands! Thank G-d all they spew IS negative words! Kerry must lose for sure.
NOTE TO MICHAEL MOORE: We've been laughing at YOU all along...
Yes, that would ceratinly be the nail in the coffin for the Democratic Party!
I don't think he will make it that far...he's prime heart attack material...
Since he has become their poster boy, I have to agree.
