Fisking Moore

It is more of a micro-fisking. Frank J gets Michael Moore’s newsletter, which is probably the only noble sacrifical thing that ronin has ever done, and quotes him thus:

4. In spite of Bush’s win, the majority of Americans still think the
country is headed in the wrong direction (56%), think the war wasn’t worth fighting (51%), and don’t approve of the job George W. Bush is doing (52%). (Note to foreigners: Don’t try to figure this one out. It’s an American thing, like Pop Tarts.)

Think about something, Mikey: given all of that, you still couldn’t win the election. You couldn’t even make it close.

Most people thought:

  • The Country is headed in the wrong direction
  • We shouldn’t have begun the war we are in
  • Bush is doing a bad job

And they still said, “you know, I think I would rather have four more years of wrong direction, bad wars, and bad president than to vote for a Democrat. In fact, as bad as all that is, I think that we really need to get rid of a few more of the Democrats we still have. Starting with Daschale.”

What a maroon. This shit writes itself.

    I think the problem is that the Democrats made Moore part of the campaign to begin with. If I didn’t support the Dems’ platform in concept, I’d be ashamed to be a member of the party.

  2. Northe says:

    Based on those figures, that is if Moore’s figures are true, looking at it from either party’s standpoint I would imagine come ’08 we should have some better people to choose from. If the Dems would have brought someone else to the table with a bit more to offer than a far left leaning record they would have won.

  3. Mexigogue says:

    You’re scaring the hell out of me. I just typed up a blog that included the phrase “what a maroon!” Then I read this one you just wrote. And what’s all this shit about project mayhem?

  4. Phelps says:

    The first rule of Project Mayhem, sir, is that you don’t ask questions about Project Mayhem.

    Bonfire of the Vanities Week 72

    Week 72 of the Bonfire of the Vanities comes to you during what’s known as Rivalry Week in college football. The rivalry that I’m most familiar with is probably one of the lesser-known ones nationally but it probably equals…
