What A Mooron

From Canada.com: Michael Moore disappointed by Harper victory

Filmmaker Michael Moore took time out of his busy schedule of eating money, Monday, to urge Canadians, in his typically petulant tone, not to vote for Conservative candidate Steven Harper in the recent election:

"Maybe it's a new form of Canadian irony – reverse irony! OK, now I get it. First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq – and then you elect a prime minister who's for it. You declare gay people have equal rights – and then you elect a man who says they don't. You give your native peoples their own autonomy and their own territory – and then you vote for a man who wants to cut aid to these poorest of your citizens. Wow, that is intense!”

Moore then suggested that voting for Harper would 'lend George Bush a hand', and that Canadians should be wary of becoming "the next notch in the cowboy belt".

Um, hi, Mr Moore? It may shock you to hear this, but not everybody in the world wakes up in the morning thinking about how best to depose the Bush government. And though I know it's devastating to your Canada fetish (my God, you could practically hear you jerking off over Toronto in Bowling For Columbine), sometimes people vote for their national leaders based on what they think would be best for their own nation! Granted, I wouldn't have voted Harper, but if you mean to suggest that the 37% of voters who did filled out their ballots thinking, "Gee, I sure would like to make life easier for the Bush administration," you are a simple-minded dolt, and just as bad as all the self-centered, arrogant Americans that you try so hard to distance yourself from.

You know what he reminds me of? A stalker. A creepy, creepy stalker who keeps pictures of Canada in a shrine in his bedroom, and writes really bad poetry about it, and carves maple leaves into the back of his hand with an exacto-knife.
