    Response to this comment:
    Re: Moore - Fahrenheit 1939

    And what about President Abraham Lincoln? He was assassinated on Good Friday April 14 1865 by a lone gunman called John Wilkes Booth. Many have suspected a conspiracy, but trained researchers have denied this - I don't have a link, but I'm suitably hypocritical to excoricate Moore for playing fast and loose with the facts while assuming people will trust everything I, some schmoe on a message board, say. Lincoln believed in "Malice towards none [and] charity for all."

    What does this have to do with Fahrenheit 9/11? Nothing, really. I'm just vainly hoping that if you throw a load of unrelated stuff on a page, people will ignore that I don't have any answers for the questions Moore raised in this movie. I don't know why members of Congress won't send their children to war. I can't defend that. I don't know why so few Senators who voted for the Patriot Act bothered to read it. I don't know why the black community in Florida was barred from the 2000 elections. I don't know how Bush can claim he's defending those who lost friends in the 9/11 attacks and supporting the military when he's actually tried to stymie the investigation into 9/11 and cut benefits, pay and pensions for soldiers. I don't know anything. But I'll tell you what - I sat through all that footage of people in Iraq with hideous wounds and I thought "This is a manipulation of the facts. As the news channels show us, nobody gets injured in war."

    I sat through the material with the woman who's son died in Iraq and I didn't think she deserved to be heard. Like the Republican woman who accosts her outside the White House says, "Lots of people died". What's the big deal, lady? And you know why I feel like this? Because I'm a true Republican, dammit. I pledge eternal support and compassion towards the disadvantaged until it emerges they don't like me. When that happens, I use the media to attack them, like we attacked Michael Berg a couple of days after his head got cut off. Man, that was fun! And like the true Republican I am, I never, ever allude to the fact that the media might just be a teensy-weensy bit on the rightist side. Because then I can safely attack an acknowledgedly partisan documentary that its creator admits is rhetoric while supporting endless lies on the nightly news cut adrift from context and painted as unbiased reportage. I can do that and sleep at night. I can do anything and sleep at night.

    I think the thinking right and the thinking left should decry me.
