    Just saw a cleaned up Michael Moore on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He certainly looks different with a shave and a haircut and in a suit. He still really needs to lose weight though, sheesh this guy is a heart attack or stroke waiting to happen! Surprisingly he seemed to be much more mellow about his Anti-bush anti-USA politics. Hopefully he soon will stop being so anti gun and just plain whacky and go back the the mellow way he was back on his show TV Nation. I miss that wiser, mellower, and just more sane Michael Moore.

    I bet the main reason he cleaned himself up though was the movie Team America: World Police. If you haven't seen it since it, basically it really, really made him look like a fat slob who doesn't appreciate those fighting terrorism. I bet he saw it and decided to improve his image a bit.

    Lets hope that he does not mellow out. If he is trying to do so, he is only trying to cover his butt.
    In my eyes he is a traitor. And he deserves a traitors punishment.

    I caught the show, too, and he was surprisingly subdued. He also practically admitted that he's more comfortable on the other side of the camera, where he can ambush people, edit the product, and not have to answer questions.

    I suspect that it's nothing more than reality (temporarily) checking fantasy....

    In Michael's mind. :scrutiny:

    Yes, he would be more comfortable behind the camera, for the reasons SteelyDan noted.

    I wouldn't anticipate any long-term behavioral changes from
    Michael Moore. ;)

    The insane mutterings of Moore and his ilk may well have swung the election in our favor. I know several people who simply got scared out of voting Democrat by people such as Moore. I hope he keeps it up.

    Yea, ok...whatever. As far as I'm concerned, he can just go $&((^%#@!)& himself.

    Michael Moore is a low life, bottom feeding, scum eating traitor - and those are his good qualities.

    I hope he gets more and more extreme (though there's not much room left on the left side of the scale),until everyone gets just how insane his ideas really are.

    Did Michael Moore say that if Bush was reelected to a second term, that he would move to Canada? Why was he on Jay Leno when he said he was going to be in Canada ? :)

    Just my .02,

    the DU peeps are divided. half of them want to hang MM for not doing enough (but they cant find a rope strong enough), the other half are saying "hold on! its not over yet!" just like they kept saying "hold on! new mexico isnt counted yet! whats that? we lost NM? okay, OHIO's not counted yet! huh? it is? alright, FLORIDA!! we'll get florida! what? lost that one too? ahwwwwwww hell!"

    anyone else notice that the audience members booing MM were either shut up or kicked out of the studio?

    i cannot and will not forgive moore for two things.

    one is cleverly editing speeches made my charlton heston and made him look like a raving lunatic making open threats against people which he never did.

    and supposedly showed how easy it was to buy a firearm at k-mart while not telling anyone he had the paper work done in advance, all he showed was him handing over the money and walking out with a firearm.

    everything else just attempts to make certain people look bad, i feel the two examples are outright insults and affronts to something the man knows nothing about. all he knows is "white man fire sticks bad!" and goes on an anti gun jag across this country because a couple idiot kids whose parents obviously didnt give their kids enough attention went on a shooting rampage in their school and makes a movie about it. although i give the fat guy credit for one thing, he surely knows how to pull at people emotions and get them to buy his books and go see his movies. in this respect the man is a genius, he's managed to take people without a brain or a non functioning one, and then feeds them full of half truths and outright lies and says its all the truth and then his brainwashed followers go out and spew the same lines he tells them.

    He got the firearm when he opened a CD account at a bank, IIRC. The kmart/walmart/whatever (I can't keep them straight, but I don't think k-mart sells gun stuff, do they?) situation was over the 9mm ammo used by the psycho losers who perpetrated the Columbine school murders.

    kmart use to sell LOTS of rifles and ammo. that is until rosie odonnel who was their spokesman caught wind of how "easy" it was to buy stuff there and crack down on their asses and basically bullied them into giving up anything and everything to do with firearms and ammunition. but she insists (ironically) that her bodyguard be armed. and i'm not kidding. YOU shouldnt have a firearm, but her bodyguard should to protect her. lol hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    Protective Coloration?

    Mikee hisdamself admitted, "If you can't beat 'em, look like 'em . . . "

    But seriously, Moore got his Ego and Id butt kicked good - he has been forced to realize he isn't anywhere near as 'relevant' as he thinks he is (if he's relevant at all :evil: ), and he took a huge amount of guff over his appearance/personna. Having over half the western world calling you a pompous, arrogant, schmelly-fat-slob and worse has got to hurt (pride goes before a fall :rolleyes: ).

    Don't count him out, he still drinks his own bath water, and he said it's a whole new game in four years, which means he'll be back at it in the next six months, as soon as he perceives enough new Bush 'screw-ups' to mount a new agenda SOS/DD :barf:

    I hope everyone realizes that it is awards season and Moore's movie is up for Best Picture nomination.

    Don't be fooled by a wolf in sheep's clothing.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck... You get the idea?

    These types are ALL about "image" and will change to whatever "image" best suits them at the time. Right now, the "shaggy/hippy liberal" image isn't playing too well so he bought a razor. Just look at him and have a good laugh.
