In perhaps the most stunning morning news show interview I've ever seen, Katie Couric just got through thoroughly trashing Michael Moore.
She began by criticizing the scenes in Fahrenheit 911 depicting a pre-war Iraq of children peacefully playing and weddings taking place. "Wasn't that misleading?" Moore claimed he only used the footage to show the kinds of people killed by US bombing, not to suggest Saddam's Iraq was a "utopia."
Next, Katie said that "many people say the Dems don't want you to be the face of the party."
"Who said that?" demanded Moore. "Well, Tim Russert for one," answered Katie.
She added: "let's face it, many people think you're a jerk."
An obviously hurt Moore responded: "but you don't think I'm a jerk, do you Katie?"
Katie refused to come to his aid: "well, my views aren't important, it's the views of the Dem party."
"But come on, Katie, you know me."
"I really don't know you very well."
"But, come one, from talking after the shows, etc. You don't think I'm a jerk, do you?"
"I really don't know you well enough to say that."
Finally, in a scene so amazing I could hardly believe my eyes and ears, Moore virtually asked Katie out on a date, and was shot down with a classic co-ed line.
Katie asked Moore if he'd be going back to the convention and Moore said he would, probably tonight and tomorrow. Then Moore added: "will you come with me, Katie?"
A shocked Katie replied: "No," then, incredibly, added: "I HAVE TO RE-ARRANGE MY SOCK DRAWER."
Yes, she actually said it. Katie made it clear that she loathes Moore and fears that as the prominent face of the party, he is dragging down her boy Kerry.
An absolutely stunning TV moment. Catch a replay if you can.
Today Show Michael-Moore-dissing ping.
What is going on here, Katey Couric dissing Michael Moore, the Kerry girls booed on MTV, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria.
She doesn't loathe Moore. She loathes that he so accurately expresses her views while being such an obnoxious democrat spokesman.
Are you SERIOUS?
They love him when he's hurting Bush..They loathe him when he's hurting Kerry...
Michael Moore couldn't get himself laid if he disguised himself as a giant floor tile. :)
As soon as useful idiot outlives his usefulness, he is just an idiot.
When Moore gave McCain--the media's beloved RINO--the "L" sign, he showed the public the left's true face and, let's face it, it AINT pretty.
Of course they resent him now.
talking point #301 has arrived from DNC Central...
Start distancing yourselves from the fat and disingenuous one...he has outlived his usefulness as a useful idiot.
I can NOT imagine al-Qatie doing this, on live international feed, to a fellow traveler and Hollywood hero like Fat Ba$tard - er, Moore.
Are you That Disgusting Fatbody, Moore?
It is so interesting how F911 is backfiring on Dems in a big way. Moore and Dems thought F911 was going to influence the independents who go to the poll and all it has done is made Republicans, veterans and the military want to go and support Bush.
Go figure. I am sure the Dems told Moore he is not helping their cause and he needs to leave the Convention.
Couric is at heart a valueless opportunist. She sees the Dem campaign going down by the bow and is scrambling for one of the seats in a lifeboat. She needs to keep her job options open.
Wow, great report! Thank you for watching the Today Show so the rest of us don't have to. You certainly have courage, not to mention a strong stomach.
Thanks for all your comments.
Its like Berlin in April of '45, what the Dems and Kerry are going through..
How long till they start saying, "they should have drafted Hillary?"
I truly could not believe what I was seeing. When Katie absolutely refused to say Moore was not a jerk, despite repeated attempts by Moore to get her to vouch for him, I was amazed. And when she came up with the "arrange my sock drawer" line to blow off his request for a date, I was dumbfounded.
Her personal dislikes are about as significant as her personal preferences.. and just about as astute.
