Bush’s secret is “out”

This is the actual ad for Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, opening in just a few days.


I think they’re kind of cute together.

Though I wonder…is Michael Moore really that tall relative to Bush? I have a feeling he got a little overcreative in photoshop with this one

Moore hovers godlike over the puny frame of our pseudo-president.

(Not really; Moore is a perennial BS’er and has to be watched carefully for lapses. But he is often spot-on, and what I’ve seen so far of Fahrenheit I like very, very much.)

Here’s one review I’ve found:

But, really, in the end, not seeing “F9/11” would be like allowing your first amendment rights to be abrogated, no matter whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat. The film does Bush no favors, that’s for sure, but it also finds an unexpectedly poignant and universal groove in the story of Lila Lipscombe, a Flint, Michigan mother who sends her kids into the Army for the opportunities it can provide — just like the commercials say — and lives to regret it. Lipscombe’s story is so powerful, and so completely Middle American, that I think it will take Moore’s critics by surprise. She will certainly move to tears everyone who encounters her.

Now guess where it’s from. But first, sit down, and swallow whatever you’re drinking…

I am counting down the days and thank heavens for M. Moore and his fearlessness. All the negativity from the right wing only increases the desire in all of us to check it out. I know this will be Moore’s greatest feat yet…

Vaara, that’s amazing. Still, I don’t expect Fox News to go left-wing anytime soon.

Cherie, I am with you. A lot of warblogger-types are sneering that no one listens to Moore and it won’t have any effect. I think they are dead wrong. Moore has been an amazing hit at the box office (for documentarires, unprecedented), and it looks like this movie has extraordinary power, moving its audiences to stand up and cheer loud and long. It sure isn’t going to help Bush in any way, and in fact it could be very damaging. Wonderful.
