Yawn. If every corporation was as greedy as Moore the the Dow would be 25,000.
What is Your Michael Moore IQ?
Ever since his bold display at the Oscar's, we here at Wrecked Highway decided to get to know provacateur du jour Michael Moore just a little bit better. After exhaustive research, we found lots of fun and interesting tidbits. So we put together a game that will give you, the reader, a good idea of the complex man that is Michael Moore. You play by guessing which of the below statements about are true or false!
1. Blamed 9-11 attacks on the fact that too many White people and not enough black men were on the planes.
2. Verbally abused a 14-year-old girl who mistook him for Roger Ebert at O'Hare Airport.
3. Told CNN's Lou Dobbs that he purposefully manipulates and distorts facts for comedic effect.
4. Despite flying first class, needed to request a seatbelt extension to accomodate his girth while flying on SouthWest Airlines.
5. The Staff at the theater in London where he performed his one man show refused to work after he verbally attacked everyone associated with the theater because he thought he wasn't being paid enough and telling the bar staff they were all "common and useless."
6. Personally consumes more agricultural resources than your average family of four.
7. Reminded former Senator Fred Thompson of "That fat little boy who sat in the back of the classroom eating erasers just to get attention."
8. Dismissed by famous linguist and activist, Noam Chomsky as a "Leftist wacko extremist."
9. Demonstrates his brotherhood with the working man through ownership of a $1.27 million dollar condo on Manhattan's Upper West Side and sending his daugther to an elite private school.
10. Called the police on an employee he "downsized" who used Moore's famous bullying tactics to call attention to the injustice.
4. F (As far as we know)
Ten Years After.....good soundtrack!!
Gotta love: "the haves and the have more's. my base"....LOL.
This is what I love about the strategy made popular by Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity, etc. it is so easy to illustrate why it is not sound.
When you cannot defend the position, attack the person.
Let's say for the sake of argument, Moore is the most hypocritical person on the planet.
Does that make his claims false?
Let's say for the sake of argument, your mailman is the 2nd most hypocritical person on the planet.
Does that change what is inside the envelope?
Focus on the man when you can't defend or stand what the man delivers.
uh....ad hominem.......par for the Pabst minded.
i dont agree with much moore, LOL, but it looks interesting and entertaining. thanks for the post, will check it out.
Ok Optional. How's this for ad hominem? I wouldn't believe Moore if he told me the Cubs play in Chicago. He lies, distorts, edits, and creates out of whole cloth whatever suits his particular anti-American stance at any given time. If the Patriot Act was some Draconian measure then "film makers" like Moore would be prohibited from spewing their Pinko crap. Instead he's free as are all American's to criticize the administration, albeit for the several million dollars he makes for doing it.
During the Clinton administration Halliburton traded as high as $60.13 The day Bush/Cheney were inaugurated Halliburton was $35.00. Today the stock is trading $29.40. Doubtful you'll get that quote from Moore. He's a POS to the core.

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
- President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998
"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
- President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998
"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
- Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998
"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
- Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998
"We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
- Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin (D-MI), Tom Daschle (D-SD), John Kerry ( D - MA), and others Oct. 9, 1998
"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
- Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998
"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building! weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999
"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
- Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001
"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 1! 9, 2002
"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002
"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002
"I will be voting to give the President! of the United States the authority to use force-- if necessary-- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002
"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002
"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and an! y nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do."
- Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002
"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapon stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002
"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec.! 8, 2002
"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real."
- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003
That would be like Hitler calling Goebbels an "insane mass murderer"
