Crockumentary maker being sued

Michael Moore, refered to by skilled film makers Trey Parker and Matt Stone as a "Fat Socialist Weasel", is being sued by someone who appeared in his Crockumentary Fahrenheit 9/11 without his knowledge or consent.

The New York Post has the story of Sgt. Peter Damon, a double-amputee Iraq-war vet.

A double-amputee Iraq-war vet is suing Michael Moore for $85 million, claiming the portly peacenik recycled an old interview and used it out of context to make him appear anti-war in "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Sgt. Peter Damon, 33, who strongly supports America's invasion of Iraq, said he never agreed to be in the 2004 movie, which trashes President Bush.

In the 2003 interview, which he did at Walter Reed Army Hospital for NBC News, he discussed only a new painkiller the military was using on wounded vets.

"They took the clip because it was a gut-wrenching scene," Damon said yesterday. "They sandwiched it in. [Moore] was using me as ammunition."

Damon seems to "voice complaint about the war effort" in the movie, according to the lawsuit.

But what the father of two from Middleborough, Mass., was really talking about was the "excruciating" pain he felt after he lost his arms when a Black Hawk helicopter exploded in front of him.

Yes, my opening sentance was a bit harsh, but Mr. Moore is very large, an H2 sized person who should not be lecturing others on overconsumption. He is also clearly a Socialist, so that's truth in advertising. As for the weasel comment, I publicly apologize to weasels for the comparison made in Team America between them and Mr. Moore.
