Michael Moore Statement on Canadian Election
Michael Moore is currently in production on his next movie. As an avid lover of all things Canadian, he has issued the following statement regarding Canada's upcoming election on Monday:
Oh, Canada -- you're not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That's a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, and certainly a well-developed sense of irony, but this is no longer funny. Maybe it's a new form of Canadian irony -- reverse irony! OK, now I get it. First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq -- and then you elect a prime minister who's for it. You declare gay people have equal rights -- and then you elect a man who says they don't. You give your native peoples their own autonomy and their own territory -- and then you vote for a man who wants to cut aid to these poorest of your citizens. Wow, that is intense! Only Canadians could pull off a hat trick of humor like that. My hat's off to you.
Far be it from me, as an American, to suggest what you should do. You already have too many Americans telling you what to do. Well, actually, you've got just one American who keeps telling you to roll over and fetch and sit. I hope you don't feel this appeal of mine is too intrusive but I just couldn't sit by, as your friend, and say nothing. Yes, I agree, the Liberals have some 'splainin' to do. And yes, one party in power for more than a decade gets a little... long. But you have a parliamentary system (I'll bet you didn't know that -- see, that's why you need Americans telling you things!). There are ways at the polls to have your voices heard other than throwing the baby out with the bath water.
These are no ordinary times, and as you go to the polls on Monday, you do so while a man running the nation to the south of you is hoping you can lend him a hand by picking Stephen Harper because he's a man who shares his world view. Do you want to help George Bush by turning Canada into his latest conquest? Is that how you want millions of us down here to see you from now on? The next notch in the cowboy belt? C'mon, where's your Canadian pride? I mean, if you're going to reduce Canada to a cheap download of Bush & Co., then at least don't surrender so easily. Can't you wait until he threatens to bomb Regina? Make him work for it, for Pete's sake.
But seriously, I know you're not going to elect a guy who should really be running for governor of Utah. Whew! I knew it! You almost had me there. Very funny. Don't do that again. God, I love you, you crazy cold wonderful neighbors to my north. Don't ever change.
(Mr. Moore is not available for interviews because he now needs to address the situation in Azerbaijan. But he could be talked into it for a couple of tickets to a Leaf's game.)
Last time he made a trip up north.
With mikey working on his lies for the katrina movie he only has time to fearmonger this time from his keyboard.
How'd the fat farm go, Mikey?
P.S. If there was no such food item as "Canadian Bacon" would you even care?
"Far be it from me, as an American, to suggest what you should do."
Uh huh, yeah, right ... why do I sense a big, fat "but" coming down the pike, here?
If I just landed from outer space, learned English, and read all the media I could get my hands on, I would think this Bush person was some sort of god - all influential, all powerful, and all knowing.
Just out of curiosity, is there any country on Earth that Michael Moore would fit well in?
Cuba is too small. Literally.
That sour, spoiled slob wouldn't last long enough to starve in Cuba. He couldn't keep his mouth shut long enough. And yet he's no doubt a Castro groupie. What a perverse tub.
Apparently not the US - I think I see one of his "lovehandles" spilling over into Canada.
What is it with lefties all over the world? Hysterical or what!
Would it be too obvious to suggest France?
I have yet to encounter anyone who was the least bit curious as to what Michael Moore thought about our election.
Who, exactly, does this pompous hypocrite think he is?
He'd fit well in New Guinea. They could live off his muscle mass for one week and fire up their oil lamps an entire year from his body fat.
I think he thinks he some sort of anti-Steyn.
Not funny -- in fact his "jokes" are insults against the very people he is addressing.
Why anyone gave this fat fool the time of day, much less money to make moving-lies like Columbine and 911 is beyond me.
Now if ya'll can just get Barbara Striesand to come up there and campaign for Martin . . .
Geez, can't this pig just fade away into a vat of lard??? Wait, he already did and then he covered it with skin.
" What is it with lefties all over the world? Hysterical or what!"
The Swimmer is reading a satire in a Supreme Court nomination hearing, AQ #2 releases poetry, Chirac says he'll nuke terrorist states, and now Fatso is in Canada helping the Conservatives to victory there.
