Greatest American ??
Most of the candidates were people one might expect: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, the Wright Brothers, Dr. Martin Luther King, the indomitable Rosa Parks – but Michael Jackson ?Malcolm X ? Michael Moore ?
Michael Moore is "notable", I guess.
Only Moore can boast of having made what amounted to a multi-million dollar (in-kind) campaign contribution , to a Presidential campaign : the failed John Kerry bid of 2004 – without attracting FEC oversight or scrutiny.
I refer,of course to his vicious anti-Bush film : Fahrenheit 911.
The film , you see , was a profit-making venture – and it made the well-to-do Michael Moore no small amount of money.
One would think Moore would be admired by billionaire George Soros – who is reported to have spent $23,000,000.
in a vain attempt to elect John Kerry.
Not so. Soros denounced Moore for "misleading and unethical tactics", adding : " I am not a fan of Michael Moore."
So who does love Michael ?
Greg Palast, apparently.
Greg , the "Eminence Grise" of Left Wing Journalism discloses he did the "background investigation" that Michael Moore used in Fahrenheit 911.
I rather thought Moore’s work had that " Palast touch " !
Cut us a break !!!
