A shout out to my friend Bobby for this awesome Dennis Miller quote:
“He’s going to wake up every day for the rest of his life, and he’s going to tell us how he hates everything about this country except his right to hate it. And then we say that we love it and he’s going to tell us what naive sheep we are and that he’s a true patriot because he hates it and sees all the problems in it. Yeah, right, Mike. You know something, if my yawn got any bigger they’d have to assigne it a hurricane name, okay?
Michael Moore simultaneously represents everything I detest in a human being and everything I feel obligated to defend in an American. Quite simply, it is that moron’s right to be that utterly, completely wrong.”

‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ Keeps R Rating, Widens Debut
The lies of Michael Moore.
By Christopher Hitchens
positive review (just to be fair)
Before everyone jumps on the propaganda bandwagon known as (ripped off from Ray Bradbury http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/world/archives/2004/06/20/2003175831) Fahrenheit 9/11, take a look at this information on the mis-information being forced down the throats of people everywhere that will now claim to be the smartest voters on the planet:
Bush family – Bin Laden family ties. Whoopee. The bin Ladens happen to be one enormous clan. When the founder died in 1988, he left no fewer than 54 children (some say 53 — heck, he himself may not have kept count.). Add in grandkids, in-laws, and cousins, and it must make for a heck of a big family reunion.
The founder emigrated to Saudi Arabia early in the 20th century, founded the construction firm, was hired to rebuild Mecca, and got a lock on all religious construction in a very religious country. Most of the family is western-leaning, and send their children to the U.S. for an education. Osama went in for fanaticism, was disowned by the family, and fled the country in 1992 after the Saudis ordered him arrested.
The Carlyle Group. Yep, it’s one big business, reportedly worth over three billion, lots projects in the Mideast. Both Bushes were tied in with Carlyle pretty thoroughly, and Bush, Sr. in retirement would travel to Saudi Arabia to hunt up more contracts. The bin Laden family invested two million in a $1.3 billion fund run by it.
The airplane. About two dozen bin Laden kids were attending school in the U.S. on 9/11. They started calling the Saudi embassy, in fear they were about to be lynched (a not unreasonable fear — a few days later a Sikh was murdered, simply because he wore a turban.) The ambassador intervened (with White House, State, or FBI — accounts vary. They “were driven or flown under FBI supervision” to a location in the US. As CBS reported, then “they left the country on a private charter plane when airports reopened three days after the attacks.”
