The great Michael Moore speaks!

Jeff at PW did such a good job at fisking this that I had to just swipe his whole post:

From Michael Moore’s website, “It’s All About Who You Sleep With ... a Cautionary Note from Michael Moore”:


Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq and who continues to support, in any way, this senseless, immoral, unwinnable war. Make no mistake about it: We, the majority of Americans, want this war ended—and we will actively work to defeat each and every one of you who does not support an immediate end to this war. painting you in blackface or calling you a Zionist toady. You hearing us, Jewlovers?

Sorry, but that’s just how the “moderates” roll!

Nearly every Democrat set to run for president in 2008 is responsible for this war. They voted for it or they supported it. That single, stupid decision has cost us 2,592 American lives and tens of thousands of Iraqi lives. Lieberman and Company made a colossal mistake—and we are going to make sure they pay for that mistake. Payback time started last night.

I realize that there are those like Kerry and Edwards who have now changed their position and are strongly anti-war. Perhaps that switch will be enough for some to support them. For others, like me—while I’m glad they’ve seen the light—their massive error in judgment is, sadly, proof that they are not fit for the job. They sided with Bush, and for that, they may never enter the promised land.

You see, one must must be pure to withstand the purge. The rest of you are on the list.

Sorry, but that’s just the “moderate” way...

To Hillary, our first best hope for a woman to become president, I cannot for the life of me figure out why you continue to support Bush and his war. I’m sure someone has advised you that a woman can’t be elected unless she proves she can kick ass just as crazy as any man. I’m here to tell you that you will never make it through the Democratic primaries unless you start now by strongly opposing the war. It is your only hope. You and Joe have been Bush’s biggest Democratic supporters of the war. Last night’s voter revolt took place just a few miles from your home in Chappaqua. Did you hear the noise? Can you read the writing on the wall?

Uh, we can’t really forgive Kerry and Edwards. But we’re willing to forgive you if you take the proper stance. Because we could really use a chick as a candidate in ‘08.

To show how enlightened we are. And of course, “moderate.” So you see, you’re useful. NOW DO AS WE SAY OR PAYBACK WILL BE SWIFT AND SEVERE!

To every Democratic Senator and Congressman who continues to back Bush’s War, allow me to inform you that your days in elective office are now numbered. Myself and tens of millions of citizens are going to work hard to actively remove you from any position of power.

If you don’t believe us, give Joe a call.

But do it now, please. Because by November he’ll probably be back in the driver’s seat. Whereas Mike will be wading in a kiddie pool filled with custard and chocolate sprinkles.

Though the custard will be of the low fat variety. Because that’s just the “moderate” way.
