Somewhere in Iraq
ps Annie, show this to Matt. He'll remember this guy--I brought him to Rich's school once to work out.
What I think is new and noteworthy, you might find 'so five minutes ago'.
"... even if it’s a fact, which it probably is, there’s no way it would have any impact on Cheney’s 'career,'" Wonkette continued. "This is a draft-dodging half-human war criminal with a pregnant lesbian daughter who tells senators to fuck themselves and shoots his own friends in the face. Ordering an outcall hooker is positively innocent compared to the well-known things Cheney does every day."
Filmmaker Michael Moore's brilliant and uplifting new documentary, "Sicko," deals with the failings of the U.S. healthcare system, both real and perceived. But this time around, the controversial documentarian seems to be letting the subject matter do the talking, and in the process shows a new maturity.I guess when it's a movie they like, Moore "shows a new maturity" and "smartly lets very articulate...Americans tell their personal...stories". I haven't seen any trailers yet, but I'll bet that those "very articulate average Americans" are, as Wolf Blitzer so foot-in-mouthingly put it, "so poor and so black," as the word articulate is often used to describe someone who isn't expected to be.
Unlike many of his previous films ("Roger and Me," "Bowling for Columbine," "Fahrenheit 9-11"), "Sicko" works because in this one there are no confrontations. Moore smartly lets very articulate average Americans tell their personal horror stories at the hands of insurance companies. The film never talks down or baits the audience. [emphasis mine]
"As many of our friends in law enforcement have rightly pointed out, the word 'suspect' has no legal meaning, particularly when it comes to denying constitutional liberties," [Chris] Cox, executive director of the NRA, in a letter to AG Alberto Gonzales.I wonder what California Congressman Dan Rohrabacher's position is on this, and I wonder if he hopes the NRA's Chris Cox's family suffers at the hands of terrorists.
