Lila Lipscomb used to hate antiwar protesters.
This summer, though, she is likely to be embraced by them, thanks to the key roles she and her late son -- who died serving in with the Army in Iraq -- play in Michael Moore's new movie.
Lipscomb, 49, is the latest ordinary person from Michigan plucked by Moore to star in one of his films. His documentary "Farenheit 9/11" is a scathing attack on President George W. Bush and the war against terrorism....
Lipscomb is onscreen for 20 minutes of the 110-minute film. She recounts the death of her 26-year-old son, Sgt. Michael Pedersen, a crew chief on a Black Hawk helicopter that crashed in Iraq on April 2, 2003. She talks about her grief, her evolving views on war and her disdain for Bush.
In the movie, she stands in front of the White House, declaring, "I finally have a place to put all my pain and anger."
She also reads her son's last letter, in which he describes his own rage at Bush and his questions about U.S. policy.
"He got us out here for nothing whatsoever. I am so furious right now, Mama," the letter says.
What a repulsive looking group.
Wow, what a fat slob! Dude, throw a salad into the rotation every now and then. On second thought, go ahead and pig out - the sooner you go, the better. There's 70 cases of twinkies waiting for you.
