“Michael Muqtada al-Moore”

Steven Den Beste weighs in with a typically-masterful take on the late, unlamented Mehdi Army and the large, lamentable Blob. An apertif:

What I found myself wondering… was whether Michael Moore may, in the end, turn out to be the American Loonie Left’s Muqtada al-Sadr.

He’s become the rallying point. He’s raised the flag, and the most motivated LL’s are flocking to support him. He’s become their poster boy, their public face. He provides a focal point; he’s a magnet around which they can gather and organize.

He has chosen the ground they will defend

    He certainly has a large foreign following like Al-Sadr.

    Good thing they’re Conniptins and not Hsiffies, eh?

    Magnet? or planet?

    Could the war’s supporters have designed a more perfect opponent than Moore?

    Easily discredited via the simplest fact-checks, obnoxious, continental (at least in mass). And best of all, obvious. This guy is made to order.

    Might for Right!
    Right for Might!
    Might for Might!
    Fight! Fight! Fight!

    (In other words, Will, greetings from a fellow Cerebus fan…)

    Moore is a farce. A sad wannabe hippy, who, like a lot of us, missed all the free love, drugs, and music of the era that our older brothers and sister were able to get into. By the time he and I got old enough to be hippies, it was the Disco age.

    He sees Iraq as if it were Vietnam. Well I guess one totalitarian dictatorship looks like another.

    The man has an ass large enough to generate it own gravitational pull. It tends to attract lightweight minds… er… OBJECTS.

    We’re always willing to laugh at you fascists Robert.
