Why I Won’t Be Seeing Fahrenheit 9/11

I was going to write something about how, even though I think in retrospect I was stupid to assume the Bush administration knew anything about Iraq that your average PoliSci undergrad didn’t, I’m not going to bother to see Fahrenheit 9/11.

However, my favorite movie critic has done it for me, and said it better than I would have.

The key line is this:

Two Fingers for Fahrenheit 9/11. I hate Bush, but I have better reasons than this.

  1. Moore gets a good portion of his satisfaction out of pissing off (on?) people who don’t agree with him. Most of the rest comes from the adoration of people who want to see some good invective thrown. He’s a Limbaugh, and an asshole.


    Almost all his statements about Americans chronicled above are aimed at people like me, who voted for Bush and don’t put up with his crap. They’re also all inaccurate with respect to me, except for the ‘big [fucking] grin on [my] face all the time’. But he has no fundamental respect for people who disagree. In Moore’s mind, you’re either with us or you’re against us.

    I guess he’d be the first to say that that’s a quintessential American trait.


  2. By the way, I don’t really plan to vote for Bush again unless Kerry goes off the deep end. But that’s in spite of Moore’s shitslinging, not because of it.
