Better Late Than Never

I know I said that I would post my thoughts on “Fahrenheit 9/11” a few days ago and I didn’t. Well, as sometimes happens, I got kind of busy. But, here at last, my thoughts about Michael Moore’s latest opus ….

Let me first say that I am no fan of the Bush administration, and would be more inclined to believe something coming out of Michael Moore’s mouth than something that came out of Bill O’Reilly’s mouth. That being said, there were times during “Fahrenheit 9/11” when I felt like defending the Bush administration. I know Moore doesn’t hide the fact that he has some very strong opinions. Nor does he deny that his films have a certain amount of bias in them. However, this was taking it a bit far. It seemed that he was about two steps away from supporting that crazy theory that the 9/11 attacks were, in fact, orchestrated by the Bush administration. I know that some members of the administration (and some former members who now run the World Bank) have, in the past, supported some rather megalomaniacal ideas and organizations, but I find it hard to believe that they would be, in any manner, shape or form, involved in the sort of atrocities that occurred on 9/11. I even found myself wondering, as the film went on, whether Moore had, to be somewhat flippant about it, finally flipped his biscuit. I don’t think he has, but the fact that I was wondering may speak to the (sometimes) wackiness of the argument he put forth in the film.

Now for a little fun …… this is a hoot. Particularly if you’re bald (like me).
