It Takes Real Courage... (Michael Moore,

Dear Mr. Bush,

I know you and I have had our differences in the past, and I realize I am the one who started this whole mess about "who did what" during Vietnam when I brought up that "deserter" nonsense back in January. But I have to hand it to you on what you have uncovered about John Kerry and his record in Vietnam. Kerry has tried to pass himself off as a war hero, but thanks to you and your friends, we now know the truth.

Differences? Mr. Moore has been so helpful to the Bush campaign one suspects he's really a rovebot.

3 Purple Hearts in 3 1/2 months and not one overnight hospital stay to repair the "shrapnel ripped flesh"? Miraculous! Kerry should be campaigning for sainthood, not the presidency.

I don't get it. Is the quoted excerpt supposed to sarcastic, or ironic, or witty, or something else besides pathetic?

I haven't seen either of his latest movies, but when it comes to the written word, Michael Moore's humor has all the grace and subtlety of... um... Michael Moore.

I've already showered once today so I don't dare follow the link for fear of fouling myself.

You'll recall that Michael Moore was the same fella who opined on September 12, 2001 that he wouldn't have felt so *bad* about the attacks if only Republicans had been killed. Mmmm, classy!

Great - now I picture John Kerry with a hand in his pants ... and Teresa in one of those Peg Bundy outfits. Scarred for life - or is the term "seared"?

Moore's married, to presumably a woman. That means she presumably has to, at least once or twice, have sex with that tottering mound of blubber. When does she get a medal?
