god bless michael moore

Courage under fire, that’s what he has, and his current open letter to George Bush is a red flag that’s needs to be waved in as public a way as possible. It Takes Real Courage to Desert Your Post and Then Attack a Wounded Vet. The truth hurts. But not as much as shrapnel.
Over at the War Prayer weblog, b!X dissects yestedays RNC, including:
In the midst of all of this, McCain also took a moment to take on Michael Moore, calling him “a disingenuous film maker who would have us believe that Saddam’s Iraq was an oasis of peace” — something Moore in fact did not do. Fair is fair, of course. No reason the GOP shouldn’t get in some digs against Moore, and I noticed on OPB that after cutting to Cheney’s smirking reaction to this, they cut to Moore himself, who is at the convention on behalf of USA Today, clearly enjoying the barb. In fact, when McCain decided that “this line was so good I’ll use it again,” Moore proceeded to applaud.
Earlier in his speech, McCain said: “Our enemies have made clear the danger they pose to our security and to the very essence of our culture…liberty.” Later, he added this: “What our enemies have sought to destroy is beyond their reach. It cannot be taken from us. It can only be surrendered.”
Which is the main problem. No terrorist attack against the United States has damaged our liberty, but our responses to such attacks most certainly have. On some levels we have, in fact, surrendered “the very essence of our culture.”

And in the limited land of email, myrln vents his frustration:
Thanks to the Republicans for making clear with the Saturday Night Live takeoff to open their convention just how trivial and meaningless conventions are. And how much they respect the political process and the American people.
Thanks to John McCain for his zombiesque speech which stripped him of all respect and credibility. Perhaps he’s a Secretary-of-State-to-be? Or National Security Advisor?
Thanks to Rudy Giuliani for reminding us that, except for his stepping up immediately after 9/11, he’s still the asshole he always has been.
Thanks to both for illustrating that either they or I live in an alternative universe by their insistence that we can “live freely, travel freely” while you can’t get on a plane without getting strip-searched or having our privacy invaded illegally or live without the govt. periodically fabricating possible terrorist attacks to keep Americans distracted from the real problem of an inept and dangerous administration or have a convention in NYC without a police force in the thousands surrounding central Manhattan and shutting down the same area. What in the name of Christ (or Allah or Buddha or whatever deity) is free about that? I’ve said it before and say it again: the greatest terrorists in the world are those currently in the White House.

Me? I’m not watching the convention. I have a weak stomach.

  1. What kind of devil led website is this? I was looking for a “legitimate” site where I could look more closely at the Representatives of my home state, and this garbage appeared. You liberal numskulls are just the ones that are bad for this nation. Not only are you haters of a decent man who truly loves this country, you are worst of all God haters, and want to take the entire nation down with you!
