RE: Britain - Farenheit 9/11
I have no idea why this movie is being discussed, most intelligent democrats I know acknowledge that the movie is misleading and full of fiction even KV admitted that MM stretched the truth. Whenever I see these threads I recall all of the morons that thought Oliver Stones JFK was a true story and destined for the history books.
The lies of Michael Moore.

One of the many problems with the American left, and indeed of the American left, has been its image and self-image as something rather too solemn, mirthless, herbivorous, dull, monochrome, righteous, and boring. How many times, in my old days at The Nation magazine, did I hear wistful and semienvious ruminations? Where was the radical Firing Line show? Who will be our Rush Limbaugh? I used privately to hope that the emphasis, if the comrades ever got around to it, would be on the first of those and not the second. But the meetings themselves were so mind-numbing and lugubrious that I thought the danger of success on either front was infinitely slight.
