Lord of the Hypocrites

Today I would like to uphold my promise seen above. I'll try to rant. I might annoy....and maybe even inform. You may be getting tired of this, but I will once again turn my sights on everyone's favorite "documenter" (term used loosely), Michael Moore. You see, he hates Bush (current President of the United States), the war, Republicans, people who own guns, and from what I can tell, the truth. He dislikes George Bush so much that he made a movie about him...and about how "his" war is the worst idea ever. I will not debate that point today. Today I am here to ask you to do nothing more than to heed Michael Moore's heartfelt request.
You see, Mr. Moore has a little petition. And it basically asks you, trusty voter, to never cast a ballot in favor of any Democrat who supported the war. I quote:
Take the pledge and let the Democrats in Congress hear you.
"I pledge to never vote again for any Democratic candidate for public office who has voted in favor of George Bush's war in Iraq."
We call on the Democrats in Congress to oppose a war on Iraq, to vote "No" to Bush's war cries. We pledge to never again vote for any Democratic member of Congress who supports George W. Bush's war against Iraq. To the Democrats in Congress, we give you fair warning: You are either with us, or you are fired.

Well worded. I couldn't have said it better myself. That means the 68 Democrat representatives and 26 Democrat Senators that remain should be updating their resumes for life in the private sector. I'm not sure Mickey understands what he's asking. And he's not leaving my Democrat friends many choices. Recently, he was confronted with this fact by none other than Ralph Nadar on Bill (the "Ultimate Blathering Idiot") Maher's show on HBO. Conveniently, the link has disappeared from his official website, but despite Big Mike's attempts to hide his obviously contradictory political stance as he campaigns against Bush during this election year, I was able to find it Top Secret Link. So it did exist. And just in case you were wondering, here are some of the names of Congressmen to whom you should not give your vote: Martin Frost (TX), Patrick Kennedy (RI), Max Sadlin(TX), Henry Waxman(CA), Robert Wexler(FL) and -ahem- Dick Gephardt(MO). Those guys are on some important commitees...are you sure Mickey? The Senators? Well, Michael Moore kindly requests you not vote for such luminaries as: Tom Harkin(IA), Chistopher Dodd(CT), Joe Biden(DE), Joe Lieberman(CT), Chuck Schumer(NY), Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton(NY), Tom Daschle(SD), and drum-roll please your Democratic Presidential ticket, John Edwards(NC) and --the truth is so satisfying-- John F. Kerry(MA). Bill is gonna be ticked.
Oddly enough, even with Kerry's statement that he would still vote the same way on the war if he knew then what he knows today, Mr. Moore has not recanted nor spoken out against him....or would that be returned to his original belief? Who knows? Not Michael or any of those other liberal knotheads. They just know...or believe...or someone told them in the media...whatever, that they should hate the President and support the other guy, even if they actually completely disagree with "the other guy". Intellectual honesty is as foreign to them as a military stand by the French.
