This is a funny one. McCain just gave Moore a free plug. Now lots more people will see the movie. You would think the McCain would have at least WATCHED the movie before criticizing it. But Bush sucked him into giving the speech because as dumb as Bush is – he’s smarter than McCain. Bush probably said “Sure John – you plug me this time an in 2008 you can be president.”
What a sucker – here’s the story.
Michael Moore is eating up the abuse he’s been getting at the Republican National Convention. The “Fahrenheit 9/11” director is still blowing kisses to Arizona Sen. John McCain, who scorned the anti-Bush crusader as “a disingenuous filmmaker” during his speech Monday night.
“Thank you, John McCain,” said Moore, who is covering the convention for USA Today. “The film’s doing $120 million right now. When McCain mentions it, I have a chance to do $150 million.
“I felt bad that McCain got set up by the Bush people to comment on a film he hasn’t seen,” Moore told us. “Anytime McCain wants a screening, I’d be happy to do that because I think he’d like it.” (McCain’s camp had no immediate comment.)
