More on Moore

Found on Andrew Sullivan's Blog:

FINALLY SEEING THROUGH MOORE: I wondered how long it would take some sane lefties to realize what a fraud Michael Moore is. Here's a refreshing editorial from the San Francisco Chronicle. Money quote:

Moore recently touched down in California as part of his national book tour. He's traveling in style -- in a private jet provided by Time Warner, and in SUVs courtesy of his publisher, Warner Books. The company also threw in some bodyguards -- as we know from his movies, America is a pretty darn dangerous place.
For his part, Moore sees no contradiction between his private life and his public image, suggesting that the only reason he's feeding at the corporate trough is because it's there. "I would never pay for this,'' Moore told the Los Angeles Times, adding that the irony is not lost on him.
When you make your living bashing malicious corporate CEOs, it's best not to remind people that you're using giant media companies to carry your message.

News break: Moore is a capitalist millionaire, getting rich off left-wing suckers.
