“Three cheers for Michael Moore!!!
Michael Moore just won a richly deserved Oscar for Bowling for Columbine and made a kick-ass speech attacking the fictious president, who made up fictitious reasons to fight a shameful war and Mike had the gumption to say SHAME! SHAME SHAME! on you Bush and we’re going to vote you out in 2004!”
“The audience gave him a standing ovation, though the speech itself was booed by some. Saying he preferred non-fiction, he said we now live in “fictitous times”:
We have fictious election results … We have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. We are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you!
Given the response he received — wild applause and a standing ovation and heckling and boos, things are truly starting to look more and more like 1968.”
AND, his book Stupid White Men has been on the L.A Times bestseller list for 53 weeks and is currently #1!
