I put Michael Moore in the same camp with Al Gore and Scott Ritter. Not my cup of tea; but what do I know I'm just a non-jew from Edmonds.

mercifurious

Thanks Duff.

We'll just toss that - along with the Ms. Clinton fake cheerleading rants - in the big ol' "who gives a rat's ass" file.

Go call Styblehead and tell him your thoughts. You need friend #1 and he needs listener #2

mercifurious

PS, Duffman.

In Moore's new "Sicko" he's actually putting meat into your ongoing (fake) rant about Hillary & Health care.

Is this a flip-flop, or will you finally just admit you've been lying the whole time?

Duffman

...and here I thought I'd lucked out and you were ignoring me...ha
nice to hear from you merci you DoA man!!!

Duffman

..sorry no (fake) rant; she's my man. To the extent MM's 'Sicko' enhances focus on health care - I support him. [just don't care for the person himself]
You DoA Man, merci and obviously Styblehead's No. 1 fan.

Next week, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will make his first visit to Seattle since U.S. Attorney John McKay was forced out in a controversial purge that prompted an ongoing congressional investigation.

Gonzales is scheduled to deliver a 45-minute speech at the Seattle Westin Hotel's Grand Ballroom on the Justice Department's efforts to protect intellectual property and combat cyber-crime. He's also expected to visit to the U.S. attorney's office in Seattle.

The event, free and open to the public, is being sponsored by the Discovery Institute, a think tank best known for promoting "intelligent design" as an alternative to the theory of evolution, and TechNet Northwest, a political coalition of technology executives.

Incidentally merci (if you're interested) a good read on the subject is Jonathan Cohn's 'SICK: The Untold Story of America's Health Care Crisis - and the People Who Pay The Price'.

Sparky
Are you proposing a physical assault on the AG of the United States? Probably not one of the better ideas you have posted.
Loud mouth liberal (scuse me, progressive) protesters are more than welcome. That is the American way. Battery on a federal official just may get a fellow tazed, clubbed, shot or any combination of security inflicted pain.
Just a thought.

coiler

Like a pie would "hurt" somebody? As compared to the torture being approved of by Gonzo, but right wing mouthpieces never look at the bigger picture. I say tar and feather.

cowpotpi3

When I look up "ignoramus" in the dictionary I see Chuck's picture. Perhaps you should use the same dictionary and look up "facetious."

I hope a lot of people show up to protest. Funny I hear a lot more loud mouthed (and mouth breathing) conservatives these days. Just listen to the radio and the lovely callers or even check out *gasp* blogs.

Do you see the irony there.
My post was nothing more than jest. I do apologise for not spelling it out. You of all who visit here was expected to recognise it.
Again, sorry. I forgot that only your opinions are valid and that anyone who does not agree with you
is a sexual intellectual or moron or idiot or shit for brains or
some other fine adjective by the great cowpotpi3.
Forgive me for I know not what I do.

Getting back to a subject of this post; In an interview about Michael Moore, film critic James Hirsen writes the following;

"On another Moore hypocritical note, I reported a while back on how filmmakers Debbie Melnyck and Rick Caine had set out to film a biography of someone they truly admired. However, while producing "Manufacturing Dissent," the two made a discovery that their hero, Michael Moore, was far from the person, or for that matter the professional, that they had imagined.

During their movie making experience, Melnyck and Caine learned about Moore's fabricated persona; in particular that he did not grow up in working class Flint, Mich., but in Davison, a wealthy nearby suburb.

They discovered that Moore was not removed as editor of Mother Jones for political reasons as he has claimed, but was fired for bad editing. They learned that Moore shot footage of himself and interspersed it with other events to imply things that never actually happened (such as Moore asking Roger Smith, former CEO of General Motors, a question at a shareholders' meeting).

The most devastating information unearthed, though, is that Moore actually did speak with then-GM chairman Roger Smith, whose supposed evasion is the central premise of "Roger & Me," but withheld the footage from the film. (Premiere previously reported this but "Manufacturing Dissent" actually displays footage of Moore interviewing Smith.)

"Anybody who says that is a [expletive] liar," Moore told The Associated Press when confronted with the charge at his Michigan "Sicko" sneak preview.

Moore also admitted that he had "a good five minutes of back and forth" with Smith at a 1987 shareholders' meeting, as reported by Premiere magazine in 1990. But Moore claims that was before he began working on "Roger & Me" and had nothing to do with the film.

By evading interviews with Melnyck and Caine, Moore and his staff behaved like the corporate targets that Moore despises. At one event, the filmmakers' soundboard was unplugged while other reporters were allowed to tape. At another event, a staffer kicked the filmmakers out of an arena and threw their camera to the ground.

An indication that the makers of "Manufacturing Dissent" had a serious change of heart about Moore was revealed in the tagline used to market the film. It read: "Michael Moore doesn't like documentaries. That's why he doesn't make them." A slogan that appeared on movie posters also conveyed their dampened sentiments: "It's Never Been so Hard to Get Michael Moore in Front of the Camera."

Because the criticism of Moore came from self-described "progressive liberals," who were originally motivated by their admiration for Moore before they reluctantly concluded that he was not what he appeared to be, the mainstream press actually treated the film more favorably than similar polemic material from the right.

Moore's talent has been to bring humor, a brisk pace and controversy to the documentary genre. "Manufacturing Dissent" demonstrated that Moore also brings fabrication.

Can we expect Moore of the same from "Sicko?"

Yes, I suppose he is demonizing Mr. Moore, but not without reason. Speaking of Moore, Villains and fabricators exist on both the Left and Right... Ex-Congressman Foley, Scooter Libby and William Jefferson also come to mind.

"I say we all show up with pie"

Like all the other protests Sparky has talked up, she will find an excuse to miss it. But to show her passion for the cause she will put her sign in the rear window of her car and race out of town as fast as she can.

Nevets

If the articles Joanie sourced would have told (as Paul Harvey say) the rest of the story, her sources might have been more credible.

Nevets

I'm sorry wrong thread.

Wouldn't expect anything less of her.

Just like Pavlov's doggies..post something you KNOW will get a reaction and Puts and his friends come 'a runnin'! woof!

cowpotpi3

Chucks you are pretty typical and predictable. Get called out on being a horse's ass and then out come the excuses. Stand up for what you believe in you wimp. Just come out and say that you stand by what you said...that is acceptable. We already know you're pretty much a pea-brained racist blowhard who couldn't think his way out of a wet paper bag so man up and quit making excuses.

People like you are always whining about how the country is going to pot (cause of those illegals and lib'rels) but you only need look in the mirror for the answer why.

pugetSound

so snarky are you showing up with the pie or do you have a date with yet another bottle of the vino?
go ahead, show nevits to be wrong.

Hey cow
I am a proud Republican.
I am a proud conservative.
I proudly support the United States Military, their mission and The Commander and Chief.
I proudly voted Democrat until Jimmah Carter.
I think abortion is a shitty way to achieve birth control, but accept begrudgingly that it is not my choice.
I think that third trimester abortion is murder and should be a crime unless the mothers life is at risk.
People (adults) who can and do not work to feed themselves should go ahead and die. Starving is a choice.
The ACLU is anti-American.
The NAACP is a racist organization.
I believe in the good in people, but am wary of the evil.
Cops are the good guys.
Drug dealers, thieves and child molesters are the bad guys.
cpp3 is a pompous ass who thinks all things liberal is good and all things conservative is evil.
cpp3 is wrong. Neither side is evil nor perfect. just my side is right more often then you.
That is why my party is going to be back much quicker than you believe possible.
So now it is your turn to pucker up and kiss my donkey.

I was going to post that one more time, but you get my drift...

cowpotpi3

History will be the judge of who's "side" is right more...you should be scared about this since idiots like yourself believe that all educators are liberal scumbags.

You listed off a bunch of beautiful talking points that just back up everything I say about you. You're probably too old to learn new tricks like questioning things that you hear from people you consider to be your political donkey licking buddies. That is what makes you such a beta-male follower. You don't like to think and prefer your life in those stark contrasts you listed there. Notice how all the minorities are racists ... how the legal foundations that protect the constitution are evil.

If being a pompous ass means I am the opposite from you than God be praised. Oh sorry...we liberals are supposed to be godless...my bad. Then again you supposed conservatives are supposed to be morally upright too.

chucks

cpp3
Another one of your ignorant assumptions. A huge majority of Americans are members of one religion or another. Less than half of them are Republicans. Many millions of them are Dems. What does that tell you? Not a valid point you make. You have never heard me question your or anybody else's faith.
Pompous ass, maybe not. No doubt about pompous wiener though.
Good night all.

joanie

You know, chucks, the mere fact that you can even sum up all your beliefs into sound bites and one-liners illustrates the shallowness of your thinking. Cowpot has a great deal of patience. You actually scare me because there are more and more of you and our country is declining at the same pace you your ilk are proliferating.

The day will come when you simpletons will be attackiing one another because the corruption and insanity of such ignorance will in the end consume you.

So sad.

joanie

And putsie, so nice to hear your sonorous display of bitterness again. I must confess that the only imaginative things you've ever posted are your clever names for Sparky and me.

Careful, sweetheart, overuse tends to diffuse the effect. It begins to sound as if that's all you've got in the bank.

Nevets

My links have more truth to them than any link you have posted in the last 9 months Joanie. Keep telling them randi lies ok, one day someone might be gullible enough to actually listen. And quit sucking up to the Capt.

joanie

Oh, jealous? You don't provide links! You look for obsolete trivia and try to impress everybody with it. And ass-backwards, name two Randi lies - if you can.

hahahahahaha . . . . thanks for a laugh, nevets. BTW, aren't intellectuals attractive? Bet you're turned on as well. See, cowpot, even nevets thinks you're sexy!

Are we then to assume that she doesn't walk the talk? Doesn't seem like the 'Sparky' I thought I knew?

cowpotpi3

Steve hold on here...you just said "my link is better than yours." Can you explain why that is? You linked to a DoD site that said specifically that they had NOT paid out anything as of 2005 for human deaths. And you said nothing to refute the WaPo article that states what the policy has actually been for the 2 year time that your link does not cover.

Come on man you can do better than that. Are you going to actually try and justify your position or is it really that you think your 'link' is 'better.' Wow.

cowpotpi3

Chuck that is the vast great difference between most people and the follower that you appear to be. If you were half the 'personal responsibility morally conservative' that you claim to be then you would most certainly rethink many of your positions. Instead you seem full of black/white talking point politics that you've repeatedly shown that you do not analyze and accept without question. It might make you feel good about things but it makes people wonder if you think at all sometimes.

Now if this makes me a wiener then I'm glad you think so. Its kind of funny that when I hear conservatives get all uppity about their positions they are called 'strong' and when liberals do the same things...well you get the picture.

Wow what a different reception Ken Griffey Jr. gets compared to A-Rod!
