It has long been my belief that, however much contempt Michael Moore may feel for conservatives, it is as nothing compared to the disdain he has for the â€śprogressivesâ€? who actually take him seriously. How else can one explain the following howler, produced in his recent Time interview?
Every fact in my films is true. And yet how often do I have to read over and over again about supposed falsehoods?
This is, to continue the car salesman analogy, rather like saying â€śEvery car on my lot is an automobile.â€? Only a man convinced that his fans are brain-dead idiots would have the audacity to feed them such a fatuous tautology.
Moore isnâ€™t satisfied with reciting tired lefty talking points about Cuban health care, which I discuss in greater detail here, he deliberately insults the intelligence of the hopelessly naĂŻve â€śprogressivesâ€? who actually think he has something useful to contribute to the health care debate.
As if to confirm Mooreâ€™s opinion of their intellectual limitations, many â€śprogressiveâ€? bloggers andÂ other media outletsÂ have actually fallen for Mooreâ€™s transparent publicity stunt involving a dark plot by the Bush Administration to â€śconfiscateâ€? Sicko.
I guess I shouldnâ€™t complain. Since the raison dâ€™ĂŞtre of this blog is to â€śclean the Augean stables of the health care debate,â€? I should be grateful to Moore and his childlike fans for providing enough BS to keep me busy for a while.
