No Oscar for Moore

It's a darned shame, but the academy has seen fit to pass over Michael Moore's cogent, nuanced work in Fahrenheit 9/11. Brings tears to my eyes.

It seems, though, that
I'm virtually alone in being prostrate with grief over the slight. Not even Moore's admirers on the left are terribly upset by the turn of events. It wouldn't be because, deep down inside, they blame him more than a little for Kerry's defeat, would it? Nah.

Just because this kind of diatribe and the fawning adulation that was thrown its way by all of the usual suspects in Cannes and Malibu is exactly the kind of thing that motivates conservatives to get out and vote, surely they wouldn't blame Mikey. And even if they did, they'd never hold back the best picture nomination Moore has been so shamelessly lobbying for, would they?

Perish the thought.
