Where is the outrage from the Left at Michael Moore for using "9/11" to make money, like they were outraged at President Bush for invoking 9/11 in a campaign ad? </sound of crickets>
Bump for later.
'But he fails to tell us that Jim McDermott was on the take from Saddam Hussein. McDermott was one of three Congressmen who went on Saddams propaganda tour of Iraq in Fall 2002. The trip was funded by Life for Relief and Development (LRD), a "charity" which laundered money to terrorist group Hamas Jordanian operation. LRD is funded in part by Shakir Al-Khafaji, a man who did about $70 million in business with Saddam through his Falcon Trading Group company (based in South Africa). LRDs Iraqi offices were raided by US troops last week, and the Detroit-area "charity" is suspected of funding uprisings, such as the one in Fallujah. Its officials bragged of doing so at a recent private US fundraiser.
Mr. Alkhafaji, one of two Americans named in Iraqi newspapers as a participant in Saddams "Oil for Food" scam, gave Congressman McDermott $5,000 in October 2002 for McDermotts legal defense fund in a lawsuit against him. Hes not biased about Iraq, right?! '
WOW, i haven't heard anything about this...McDermott is an unbelieveable POS.
One of the big differences between the left and the right is treatment of "family kooks". The right, at best, tolerates them and usually tries to keep them locked up with the crazy aunt in the attic. The left trots them out on center stage and glorifies them. The treatment of Moore and Franken are but two examples of how the left glorifies its kooks.
Also, have some sort of voice over of what their thinking like, "I'm not hungry, but I'd love a cheeseburger about right now." That would be hilarious!
"In fact, while some Bin Ladens did get to fly out early, most of the Bin Laden family flew out of America, after the rest of America could already fly."
I realize that you were limited on space for rebuttal but Richard Clark was the one in the administration that made the decision to let the Bin-ladens leave when they did.
By the way rumor has it that there was a scene in the movie depicting a "milk factory after being bombed that was represented as happening during this Iraq war but is really from the first gulf war. did you happen to catch that?
ps Thank god you didn't drink the Kool aide.
Guns Before Butter.
Take the June 13 Muslim American Society fundraising dinner for Islamic Relief, a charity with links to the Muslim Brotherhood. Conyers and his wife were the guests of honor. They watched and clapped as the Sanabel Al-Quds "dancing" troop from Milwaukeefeaturing boys as young as sevensang in Arabic of martyrdom and jihad for Allah and Palestine. They didnt need to understand Arabic, as the young boys used a rifle to simulate killing and pistol-whipping, simulated throat-slittings and beheadings, and dishonored the American flag.
Can anyone verify the above? I'd never heard of this before and it turned my stomach when I read it......
He said it, but was quoting Disraeli.
just because they can.A common theme among the Dims these days.

Excellent review by Debbie. Just what I was looking for.
Unfortunately I missed the Michael Moore interview on Howard Stern yesterday with Debbie giving MM what for!
It would be a simple thing for me to do - because until this flap over this piece of film - I really and truly had no clue what he even looked like. Micheal Moore??? who's that????
*That* -- is wrong. Sometimes you have to take the storm, rather than raise a family to the level of gods of a petty kingdom.
He looks like a giant rotting ham hock.
