Strange Bedfellows (aka “The Fat Man & the Catholic)

Movie Poop Shoot: Hollywood Elsewhere – October 8, 2003
Liberal “blowhard” Michael Moore (who is otherwise a very respectable fellow, save for that objectionable “blowhard” part…he ruined the Academy Awards!) has said his next film, “Fahrenheit 9/11,” is due to be released in September of 2004. The tagline? “The temperature where freedom burns.” The subject matter? The Bush dynasty’s connection to Saudi oil magnates and the White House assistance given to Bin Laden’s relatives in their efforts to leave the country in the waning days after September 11, 2001, a period of time during which all other planes were grounded by the FAA.
“Fahrenheit 9/11”? If you’re going to politically riff on Ray Bradbury titles, wouldn’t some pun related to “Something Wicked This Way Comes” have worked better? Anyway, it’s better than the neo-dadaist “Bowling for Columbine”.
Here’s the shocker: the documentary is being co-produced by Mel Gibson‘s Icon Productions, the same company releasing the action star and director’s uber-biblical (and possibly uber-anti-Semitic) “The Passion” next spring. This, you may recall, is the supposedly literal reading (even down to the Aramaic-language dialogue) of the bible’s documentation of the last days of Christ, complete with Christ-killing Jews. Because, you know, that’s the way it really happened. I mean, it’s in the book, even…
Now, take another gander at Moore’s film’s projected release date, September, 2004. The same month of the Republican Convention in Manhattan, mere miles from Ground Zero, on the event’s three-year anniversary. September, 2004, a little more than one month before the presidential election. Prime influence-peddling time.
I guess it’s a little early to speculate about Fahrenheit 9/11’s potential for incendiary content, but expect some topical punches to be pulled. It’s a sure bet that in any fistfight, Mel Gibson could so kick Michael Moore’s ass.
You know why? Because Michael Moore is a fat motherfucker, and overweight to boot! He is so easy for rightwingers to make fun of!

I’d like to kick Michael Moore’s big fat ass all over town. The problems is, if I were to do such a thing then every freakin’ environmentalist in Seattle would mistakenly think that I was abusing some poor, beached whale, and “scream” me to death. Liberal dipshits… cant live with them, can’t waste a Remington on them…
