Fahren Balanced 9/11?

(Originally published on that EoA blog)

Fahrenheit 9/11 weekend! Have you seen it yet? Why not? Watchu scared of, a big bad dose of TRUTH, my brother?

I liked it. Actually thought Michael Moore was a bit restrained- maybe there was so much stuff to cover on this one, and the stuff covered is so damned serious, he didn't feel the need to wise-ass some shlep of a security guard or corporate p.r. rep like he usually does (although this classic Michael Moore technique worked like a charm when he headed over to K-mart HQ with that Columbine victim to return K-mart's bullets in Bowling... the good folks at the Big K changed their ways!)

But nervous folks in the Right Wing Pundit Business are going to call the man a liar, a cheat, a scoundrel, anti-American, Anti-troops (if you haven't seen the movie, and you believe that, then you are dumb, dumb, dumb)- and then they call him fat. When they call him fat, you know they got NOTHIN' - and that they're just mean.

The Center For American Progess website has a nice page that breaks down the accusations and the truth. Check out Analyzing Fahrenheit 9/11.

Stuff to think about as you come home from the multiplex after sticking it to the man, and to White Chicks, the best zombie movie I've seen in awhile.

Update: Even the Carlyle Group will profit from F9/11... amazing.
