Michael Moore Gets It

No seriously. He gets it.

But before everyone gets all smug and self-righteous about the Palin selection, remember where you live. You live in a nation of gun owners and hunters. You live in a country where one out of three girls get pregnant before they are 20. You live in a nation of C students. Knocking Bush for being a C student only endeared him to the nation of C students. Knock Palin for having kids, for having a kid who's having a baby, for anything that is part of her normalness -- a normalness that looks very familiar to so many millions of Americans -- well, you do this at your own peril. Assuming she's still on the ticket two weeks from now, she will be a much tougher opponent than anyone expects.
Now I have read the rest of the piece so you don't have to. And I really don't recommend it. It is his usual load of crap.

But in that one paragraph he shows that he at least knows the American scene. He may not like it. But he does know it.

Unfortunately for Mr. Moore, it's taken only ten days, not two weeks, for her to become bullet-proof. Sorry, fat boy!

I take it you don't understand how the Cos are run.

The profits are private the losses are socialized.

Evidently she understands more about economics than your socialist friends.

Not to worry. There will be ads out soon covering ∅'s voting for earmarks benefiting Biden's son the lobbyist.

I'm sure that will be a big hit with the voters.

Biden and ∅bama favored the bridge.

I hope the argument works well for them.

I take it ∅ doesn't need the hick bitch vote.

Keep up the good work.

I think you make a valid point about Moore (and I also thank you for wading through the muck so I don't have to). I did see Roger and Me, and enjoyed what I then viewed as his everyman style and ability to illustrate the challenges facing the working (or not working) poor folk in Flint, MI. He gets it but doesn't like it.
