Michael Moore’s More of a Left-Winger Than Hugo Chavez


Yup, this was Lou Dobb’s parting blow after Michael Moore bulldozed over Wolf Blitzer during a recent interview on CNN. Moore surely doesn’t need any publicity help from me, but this clip is priceless.

Moore, who got worked up and red-faced, got some good jabs in, criticizing CNN’s coverage of Iraq and health care, but in the end he ends up looking belligerent and a little ridiculous. His loud barking covered up what could have been stellar points. He has this problem with his movies as well. His messages could surely go further if he brought down his level of grandstanding a notch or two. But then again, why change now? That’s what has made him as successful as he is.
