BREAKING NEWS: Michael Moore gives a GOOD speech

I’m not normally a fan of Michael Moore.  But the segment which Democracy Now! did on his testimony at the California state legislature has a clip of what is truly a fantastic speech delivered with an oratorical style I did not think Michael Moore capable of.

There is no way that I can say this without sounding pretentious as hell, but I have previously felt that Michael Moore’s brand of progressivism — especially when compared to true luminaries such as Noam Chomsky — was a bit like cousin Cletus’s 5-part serenade ‘Ode to a swimmin’ hole’ on his banjo after an afternoon of good moonshine.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 

Before this interview, I always thought:  Entertaining?  Yes.  Enlightening?  Not as much.  So, while I may be losing some of my commie street cred by saying this, I do have to say that, regardless of your opinion of Michael Moore, his speech in this Democracy Now! segment is well worth the watch especially considering the neo-liberal forces at work within our own country working to bring us closer to U.S.-style healthcare.

    Good post!

    Any chance we will see an update to the polling resource soon? Today is the one month anniversary since the most recent update.

    It’s funny to see the pro-corporate mobs which form and subsequently target Moore (or anyone) who opposes blind & greedy destructive profiteering.

    People before profits. Always.

    What some insight into Michael Moore thinking? Read the entire “Public Health Crunch” blog before you see the movie! (

    This weeks topic is titled “Are CMEs becoming infomercials?”.

    Past topics included: “Patient dumping” and “Me too drugs”

    Take care.
