Moore in own words

Forget “Fahrenheit 9/11.” Here’s Michael Moore in his own words.

His description of his fellow countrymen and their pursuit of the American Dream: “They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet.”

“We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don’t know about anything that’s happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing. “

“The dumbest Brit is smarter than the smartest American.”

On our president: “I want him paraded in handcuffs outside a police house as a common criminal. I’ve never seen anything like Bush and his people. They truly hate our Constitution, our rights and liberties. “

Moore on Spider-Man 2: “‘Spider-Man 2’ is part of “a web of deception, a conspiracy to silence me”

“It’s not just the cynical timing of the release of ‘Spider-Man 2,'” said Moore, “but the movie endorses the unilateral and so-called righteous use of power to overcome so-called evil. This is a thinly veiled rebuttal of ‘Fahrenheit 9/11.'”

Mr. Moore added that buying a ticket to “Spider-Man 2” is “tantamount to voting for George Bush.”

I made up the Moore on Spiderman quote, but if Moore can conjure up outrageous falsehoods, why can’t I?
