This just in

The French love Michael Moore. But especially so when he feeds them the anti-American agitprop they love. Imagine that. Drudge has additional details: "Controversial scene in film shows wounded American GI in Iraq talking about how Democrats must win election." Well? So what? It's not as though joining the GOP is a prerequisite to be in the army. Of course there are Democrats serving, brave ones doing their duty honourably. But what are the chances that a single opinion will be presented by media spin as indicative of a growing trend (they love that phrase), while a single beheading or a single sarin payload means nothing? Moreover - how many soldiers in Iraq support the president? How many will vote for him, regardless? The questions Moore fails to ask are just as important.
