    Michael Moore, the prominent documentarist, today announced that his Slacker Uprising Tour of American universities will visit the campus of the Electoral College on Saturday night, after a stop at Lehigh University on Friday. "I suddenly realized that I'm wasting my time talking at other colleges," said Mr. Moore, "not only because the liberal slackers won't wake from their hangovers in time to vote, but also because their vote doesn't really count. The only college that matters is E.C." A spokesman for the provost's office said Mr. Moore will receive his traditional honorarium of $35,000, much of which covers the...
  • 'Michael Moore is a Desperado,' More Democratic Songs

    'Michael Moore is a Desperado,' More Democratic Songs Concertgoers at Linda Rondstadt's Las Vegas show were wrong to storm out of the Aladdin Hotel's theater and throw their drinks at her poster after she dedicated the Eagle's song "Desperado" to Michael Moore; because the song's title suits the bloviating moviemaker perfectly. He is a desperado in every sense of the word as defined in The American Heritage Dictionary. Desperado: "a desperate, dangerous criminal, especially of the western frontier."; Today the uncivilized frontier is Hollywood. The lyrics about a lonely, outcast cowboy who builds fences, shoots first and asks questions later...

    “The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not "insurgents" or "terrorists" or "The Enemy." They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win.” These are not the words of Al Jazeera, or the ravings of some fanatical Moslem Sheik. They are the words of Michael Moore, Oscar-winning filmmaker, best-selling author, and ostensibly an “American.” There is only one word which can be used to describe such a man: traitor. Based upon the success of his movies and the sales of his books, it’s fair to call Michael Moore the leading...
  • Heads Up... from Michael Moore

    Friends, I have never seen a head so far up a Presidential ass (pardon my Falluja) than the one I saw last night at the "news conference" given by George W. Bush. He's still talking about finding "weapons of mass destruction" -- this time on Saddam's "turkey farm." Turkey indeed. Clearly the White House believes there are enough idiots in the 17 swing states who will buy this. I think they are in for a rude awakening. I've been holed up for weeks in the editing room finishing my film ("Fahrenheit 911"). That's why you haven't heard from me lately....

    hey, wait a minute The conventional wisdom debunked. Wesley & Me Ever seen Bowling for Columbine, General?By Michael Hastings Posted Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2004, at 2:37 PM PT Background check, anyone? Who's the political odd couple of the campaign season: Judy and Howie? John and Teresa? Try Wesley Clark and Michael Moore. The union between the Silver Star winner and the self-described peacenik was consummated last week on the stump in New Hampshire. Clark embraced Moore's support, calling the best-selling author a "fantastic leader." In the press release, Clark's campaign lauded—in the first line no less—the "Academy Award winning director,"...

    Sunday, December 14th, 2003 We Finally Got Our Frankenstein... and He Was In a Spider Hole! -- by Michael Moore Thank God Saddam is finally back in American hands! He must have really missed us. Man, he sure looked bad! But, at least he got a free dental exam today. That's something most Americans can't get. America used to like Saddam. We LOVED Saddam. We funded him. We armed him. We helped him gas Iranian troops. But then he screwed up. He invaded the dictatorship of Kuwait and, in doing so, did the worst thing imaginable -- he threatened an...
  • The Economist’s ‘Face Value’ column profiles Paul Krugman

    Institutional Economics ^ | November 18, 2003 | Unsigned
    The Economist’s ‘Face Value’ column profiles Paul Krugman and pretty well sums up my own view of him: But, increasingly, people are asking whether Mr Krugman's success as a journalist is now coming at the expense of, rather than as the result of, his economics…perhaps the most striking thing about his writing these days is not its economic rigour but its political partisanship. I saw a copy of Krugman’s latest book in one of the local bookstores yesterday and was struck by its cover art. The cover art for the non-US or Commonwealth version of the book is very different...

    The New York Times ^ | November 23, 2003 | DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK
    PAUL KRUGMAN, the liberal economist and columnist for The New York Times Op-Ed Page, has recently urged his fellow liberals to be less civil toward their conservative foes. The British publisher of his latest book, "The Great Unraveling," however, may have taken Mr. Krugman's advice further than he intended. Unlike the relatively staid cover of the American edition published by W. W. Norton, the British book jacket bears caricatures of President Bush as Frankenstein-like and Vice President Dick Cheney with a Hitler mustache. A dark scrawl on the vice president's forehead reads, "Got Oil?" Christine Iverson, a spokeswoman for the...

    His many lies didn't do it. Nor did his ties to Enron, his long-standing complicity in anti-Semitism, or his slanderous smears of his critics. No, it took a simple picture for the New York Times to finally distance itself from America's most dangerous liberal pundit, Paul Krugman. The picture in question is on the cover of the U.K./Australia version of Krugman's best-selling book, The Great Unraveling. It's a photomontage showing the face of President George W. Bush with huge Frankenstein sutures across his mouth and brow, and the word "Enron" stitched into his forehead. Vice President Dick Cheney's face sports...

    Thursday Nov. 20, 2003; 12:53 p.m. EST NY Timesman's Book Shows Cheney with Hitler Mustache The cover of the British edition of a new book by Bush-bashing New York Times columnist Paul Krugman carries a photo of Vice President Dick Cheney defaced with an Adolf Hitler-style mustache. Krugman's American publisher, W.W. Norton & Co., uses a much more mundane cover with no photographs for his attack screed, "The Great Unraveling: From Boom to Bush in Three Scandalous Years." But the cover of the British edition is emblazoned with a photo of the vice president sporting an oil mustache in the...

    London "faces gridlock" during Bush visit Mon 10 November, 2003 12:53 LONDON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush's visit to Britain next week could bring London to a standstill as fears of terror attacks and protests against the Iraq war force police to mount one of the capital's biggest ever security operations. London's Metropolitan Police said on Monday it will deploy "all the resources necessary" during the trip, which starts on November 19, prompting fears that large parts of the city may be cordoned-off. Although precise details of the president's itinerary and route have not been released, the police acknowledge...

    The petition discussed about Moore yesterday is now ready at Please sign it. If you missed yesterday's discussion, here is the synopsis: For the simple purpose of embarassing Michael Moore as an obese hypocrite, we are creating a petition for Moore to go on a hunger strike to demonstrate his seriousness as a social activist. True activists like Gandhi and Chavez went on hunger strikes to prove their sincerity. The notion of Moore going on a hunger strike is unthinkable. He doesn't know the meaning of the word sacrifice. *There were some that wanted to go the other direction...
