Michael Moore plans "Fahrenheit 9/11" sequel (Swissinfo, November 12th, 2004)

Director Michael Moore is planning a sequel to "Fahrenheit 9/11," his polemic against the Bush administration, to be released about the time of the next presidential campaign, according to a spokeswoman for his distributor.

The sequel, dubbed "Fahrenheit 9/11 and 1/2," will revisit the same issues as
Moore's earlier documentary, which he repeatedly said was aimed at swaying the outcome of the presidential race against President George W. Bush.

"We want to get the cameras rolling now and have it ready in two (to) three years," Moore told Daily Variety columnist Army Archerd on Thursday. "Fifty-one percent of the American people lacked information (in this election), and we want to educate and enlighten them. They weren't told the truth."

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin has announced he is leaving in 2008 if the Democrats don’t win.

Oh Alec, Promises, promises. Go already before all the good countries are taken.

Actually, Alec has already moved to North Korea and appears to be dead.

I saw it in the persuasive Team America - World Police documentary.

Michael Moore was interviewed in the documentary, too. He was a real ham on camera, after making an explosive revelation.

If he's going to keep making these things until the Democrats win, we could end up with as many of Moore's "Farenheit" sequels as we currently have "Friday the 13th" movies or Rocky sequels.

Michael Moore is the best poster child for underrstanding liberalism imaginable. His works make it simple for an average Joe to crystalize the best arguments for and against it.
He has class envy, anti-corporation, anti-religion, cultural permissiveness, anti-gun, anti-free market amoung others. He just needs to work some pro-statism in there and he will be well rounded out. (maybe Oj could give him a hand).

If the President can put a dent into teacher's unions, maybe he can work the statism angle into this sequeal movie

"'Fahrenheit 9/11 and 1/2,' will revisit the same issues ..."

Based on the stunning success the first time around, why not?

If only someone would produce a satirical comedy about Moore that would reduce him to a laughing stock along with those who give him credence.

Sticks and stone may hurt his bones but laughter could really damage his persona. He defies ridicule upfront but I doubt he could take what he gives out.

In other news, Moore will continue his all-cheeseburger and slurpee diet in an attempt to lose weight.

Many have tried. Moore's shysters have sued them out of existence, except for Parker and Stone.

Speaking of which, anybody noticed how Moore resembles South Park's Cartman both outside and inside?
