The election and michael moore

Contrary to the title I am actually blogging on two completely separate and different topics, although both topics are positive. First a nod in the direction of the Mudville Gazette with an excellent post on the soldiers reaction to the great election we just had.
As for michael moore there is a new documentary out (about him not by him). The documentary, called "Michael Moor Hate America" is a film by Michael Wilson. It has recieved excellent reviews by many high profile movie reviewers, even Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper gave it two thumbs up, seriously. Some of the other reviews the film recived follow.

". . . the film isn't about ideology as much as accountability."

Jeff Strickler, Star Tribune

"Far more jocular, good-natured and thoughtful than Moore partisans might expect..."

--Robert Koehler, Variety

"Filmmaker and narrator Michael Wilson, a regular Joe from the heartland, embodies all that Michael Moore pretends to be."

--Cinnamon Stillwell, September 16, 2004, ChronWatch

"The movie will do to Michael Moore and 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' what the bloggers have done to CBS and Dan Rather and America deserves to hear the truth."

--Victor Elizalde, 30th District Congressional Candidate, California

This movie opens in the Twin Cities this weekend, maybe we will go see it. Also here is the link to the movie website.
