SICKO is SCARED-O
Turns out Michael Moore isn’t as willing to debate conservatives as he wants the public to think. The plus-sized publicity hound is booked on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos for this Sunday and upon booking him as a guest, they all agreed to have a conservative on with him to make it a debate on health care policy. I was asked to go on with him, and after thinking it over a bit I told them I couldn’t agree until I had actually seen the project and knew what exactly he was debating. They all agreed to overnight a copy of the film, I would view it this morning, and let them know ASAP.
Well, the movie never arrived. So, I wait, and then comes the news – Michael Moore has canceled the debate. Guess he didn’t expect anyone to seriously take him on. Had I known he was this chicken, I would have accepted on the spot, but at least I can spare myself the agony of watching one of his mockumentaries.
Bottom line: his movies, his politics, and his incessant bullying are all an act. I guess to liberals like Michael Moore, cooking up a message isn’t as appetizing when you’re not the one controlling the cameras.
