Michael Moore’s hypocrisy is unbelievable. The Big Fat Flake from the Great Lake State is attacking George W. Bush for making light of September 11:

The following is an interview with the First Couple from the current issue of one of my favorite magazines, Ladies Home Journal (Oct. '03). They are asked about what September 11, 2001, was like for them personally, and, although over 3,000 people had just perished, George W. was able to find some humor by the end of that day:

Peggy Noonan (the interviewer): You were separated on September 11th. What was it like when you saw each other again?

Laura Bush: Well, we just hugged. I think there was a certain amount of security in being with each other than being apart.

George W. Bush: But the day ended on a relatively humorous note ...

And Bush tells a story about being hustled around the White House by security staff while he’s trying to get some sleep: “I'm in my running shorts and my T-shirt, and I'm barefooted. Got the dog in one hand, Laura had a cat, I'm holding Laura ...”

In reply to Noonan’s follow-up -- “So the day starts in tragedy and ends in Marx Brothers” -- Bush comments: “That’s right. We got a laugh out of it.”

“It” being the cat-dog-barefeet hijinks, not September 11. This induces an earthquake of moral outrage from Michigan Fats:

Although America had just suffered the worst attack ever on our own soil, somehow this man was able to end his day on a funny note. I wonder how many of the 3,000 families who lost someone earlier that day had a funny ending before they went to sleep? Please read the above exchange aloud to anyone who will listen. It speaks volumes.

Here’s something else that speaks volumes. On September 12, 2001, Michigan Fats published this at his website:

Many families have been devastated tonight. This just is not right. They did not deserve to die. If someone did this to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people who DID NOT VOTE for him! Boston, New York, DC, and the planes' destination of California - these were places that voted AGAINST Bush!

You won’t find these words at Moore’s site. He removed the post after it attracted criticism. Moore’s explanation for writing it in the first place?

It was satire.

Don't forget to add your name to the online petition calling for mike moore to run for prez in 2004. There's some interesting MIKE supporters if you look hard enough. Check out Ivan Milat and Bilal Skaf's signatures!

i rather doubt he's able to run for anything, except perhaps the all-you-can-eat buffet line

Why did the towelheads target the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, rather than Michael Moore? They could only hijack four aircraft.

This is an old story. I remember reading about it a long time a go. Moore is really scraping the bottom of the barrel on this one.

Don't forget Moore's stand-up routine in England when he said the skinny little hijackers would have failed if there had been big bad bruthas on the planes instead of 'fraidy white folks.

When Mikey's pager goes off, people think he's backing up.

When Mikey goes to a restaurant, the waiter doesn't give him a menu, he gives him an estimate.

When Mikey cuts himself shaving, he bleeds gravy.

Mikey's friends like to take him to McDonald's so they can see the sign change.

Here's the funniest one - Mikey rails against stupid, rich white men who consume more than their fair share of resources. I think it's called "projection."

Hey Mikey, your sisters so fat, I rolled over twice after sex last night and I was still on the bitch.

I just want you guys to know that I'm ashamed that Michael Moore is from my home state.

How come no idiot has started bleating about people making Micheal Moore fat jokes?

Michael Moore was hanging out on a street corner when the police came by and told him to break it up.

Arrgghhh mates, time to get the harpoon down and dust her off. Mickey season is open.

Don't make fun of Michael Moore- he just recently went in for some bloodwork and they found bacon.

Or, if you prefer, Michael Moore farts porkchops.

It is said that when his parents took him to the beach as a kid, they had to get him out of the water at least twice a day to let the tide in.

Stupid Fat Man.

My life, by Michael Moore.

Chapter One. I am born.

"Oh look, it's a boy!" said the midwife, placing me delicately on my mother's stomach.

"Oh he's HORRIBLE! Get that thing OFF me AT ONCE!" my mother exclaimed. "He must be all of FOURTEEN POUNDS!"

to be continued
or maybe not

Hey, but he's supporting General Clark for President... Or sort of... Michael's way too important to endorse anyone at this time. Too bad he lives in Michigan. He could have run for governor here in Calif. But some of my fellow Academy members would vote for him too. They already gave his wretched reactionary horseshit an award.

Mom, is that a new rollercoaster ride?

No, dear, just Mikey's tongue flopping on the ground.

The hick-wit adds valuable weight to Tim Blairs 'story', you folks are really funny.
No really, you are.

Good to see you're all not letting that intelligence go to waste producing internationally best selling books and movies.

Nope, we're interested in accuracy, research, and intellegence; not telling a pack of body-pierced flat-earth living recessive gene enhanced pinheads what they want to hear. When the Baleen Bolshevik starts haning out buckets of cash to unemployed auto workers in his home town in accordance with his socialist ideals, I'll take hime seriously. In the meantime, why is Mike Moore barred from ocean swimming by the Coast Guard? He is a declared danger to shipping. No man is an island, except for Mike Moore. Mike Moore now generates his own gravity and attracts sattelites. Mike was responsible for the last solar eclipse- he went out in daytime. Mike Moore is about to be declared the 52nd state. Anyone else?
