You can order your DVD of Fahrenheit 9/11 from my friends at All Spin Zone, with all profits going to the Democractic cause.
While not perfect, F911 was definitely a turning point for me, especially in regard to just how despicable the stealing of the 2000 election was. There’s a lot of the usual Michael Moore nonsense and clowning, and I ignored a lot of the stuff about Bin Laden’s family and the bushes. But many parts of the film are seared in my memory: the before and after interviews with the mother whose son was killed in Karbala, the secret service inexplicably protecting the Saudi embassy, the famous goatboy footage of September 11, the battle scenes of Iraq, and that last video clip of bush (“Fool me once…”), where you simply have to pause and ask yourself how we ever managed to end up with a total moron at the nation’s helm.
I hear the DVD comes with lots of new footage, so I’ve pre-ordered already. And remember, it makes a great gift for your dumbass Republican friends. Make sure they watch it before the election.
