Thanks much. I mean, I was going to be sitting in this famous guy's presence for 3 hours, so I thought it foolish not to start formulating an article to be derived from it. He was a real pleasure to see and listen to -- even though a good many points in his book lack a great deal of logic. Still, he's anything but boring.

Thanks again for the kind words.

I tried to use some Michael Moore facts in a political science paper once, and it didn't go over very well. I appreciate that you were respectfully argumentative and discerning.

Congratulations on your Oscar.

Your speech proved to the world that you are a silly ignorant cod.

You are supporting oppression Michael. Your beliefs seem to be based on an
ignorant Bush-Bashing platform. Please educate yourself on the issues at hand.

You should be ashamed Mr. Moore. Ashamed. Go back to your fictional home to
think of more ignorant insults you can spew for your own personal gain. Any
press is good press I suppose.

Way to go. You are a stand up American. An Idiot, but an American just the
same. I respect your right to free speech. Try educating yourself on what you
speak about next time you walk up to the microphone. People may be listening.

Remember too that freedom of speech is not only a right, but an awesome
responsibility. Please take care of it.

Great how everyone applauds Freedom of Speech - until something they disagree with is spoken aloud.

I don't agree with Moore's statements entirely, but I absolutely admired that he tried to speak his mind.

How many 'celebrities' actually do that? About none.

Oh sure, everyone clings to that oh-so-safe "I support the troops!" mantra, and that's certainly very nice but I like the fact that someone has anger and vents it.

(And YES I fully support and admire the American and Allied troops, but I think people spit out that 'support the troops!' motto simply because they have no other CLUE what to say about this fakakta war.)

Word. I too support the US troops. I also support the Iraqi people just trying to get through a day of goat-herding as bombs drop around them. I also support any journalist who isn't named Geraldo. I also support France for doing the democratic thing and saying "no thanks" when their people wanted them to. I also support the more than 50% of americans who didn't want to go into war with Iraq based on flimsy evidence and with no UN backing.

I also support the Canadian government who said today "certainly we support America. We support them with lumber, water, oil, salmon, but we don't support the decision to go to war without UN backing, and we expect that the USA will appreciate that any democratic nation should cede to the will of the people, not the people next door."

It's funny how little middle america learned from the McCarthy era.
