Turkeys on the Moon... - 12/08/03 05:38 PM

December 8, 2003<br><br>Dear Mr. Bush,<br><br>Well, it's going on two weeks now since your surprise visit to one of the two countries you now run and, I have to say, I'm still warmed by the gesture. Man, take me along next time! I understand only 13 members of the media went with you -- and it turns out only ONE of them was an actual reporter for a newspaper. But you did take along FIVE photographers (hey, I get it, screw the words, it's all about the pictures!), a couple wire service guys, and a crew from the Fox News Channel (fair and balanced!).<br><br>Then, I read in the paper this weekend that that big turkey you were holding in Baghdad (you know, the picture that's supposed to replace the now-embarrassing footage of you on that aircraft carrier with the sign "Mission Accomplished") -- well, it turns out that big, beautiful turkey of yours was never eaten by the troops! It wasn't eaten by anyone! That's because it wasn't real! It was a STUNT turkey, brought in to look like a real edible turkey for all those great camera angles.<br><br>Now I know some people will say you are into props (like the one in the lower extremities of your flyboy suit), but hey, I get it, this is theater! So what if it was a bogus turkey? The whole trip was bogus, all staged to look like "news." The fake honey glaze on that bird wasn't much different from the fake honey glaze that covers this war. And the fake stuffing in the fake bird was just the right symbol for our country during these times. America loves fake honey glaze, it loves to be stuffed, and, dammit, YOU knew that -- that's what makes you so in touch with the people you lead!<br><br>It was also a good idea that you made the "press" on that trip to Baghdad pull the shades down on the plane. No one in the media entourage complained. They like the shades pulled and they like to be kept in the dark. It's more fun that way. And, when you made them take the batteries out of their cell phones so they wouldn't be able to call anyone, and they dutifully complied -- that was genius! I think if you had told them to put their hands on their heads and touch their noses with their tongues, they would have done that, too! That's how much they like you. You could have played "Simon Says" the whole way over there. It wouldn't have been that much different from "Karl Says," a game they LOVE to play every day with Mr. Rove.<br><br>Well, if you're planning any surprises for Christmas, don't forget to include me. When I heard last week that you wanted to send a man back to the moon, I thought, get the fake goose ready -- that's where ol' George is going for the holidays! I don't blame you, what with nearly 3 million jobs disappeared, and a $281 billion surplus disappeared, and the USA stuck in a war that will never end -- who wouldn't want to go to the moon! This time, take ALL the media with you! Embed them on the moon! They'll love it there! It looks just like Crawford! You can golf on the moon, too. You'll have so much fun up there, you might not want to come back. Better take Cheney with you, too. Pretend it's a medical experiment or something. "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for every American who's sick and tired of all this crap."<br><br>Yours,<br><br>Michael Moore<br><br>

I'll tell you who's "crap" I'm sick of Michael Moore. "hey, I get it, this is theater! So what if it was a bogus" Is a pretty good description of his "documentaries" <br><br>

It's a bit of a stretch but maybe 777666555 is all alive and too well.<br><br>Big ups to the people against corporate dictators and the cocained outta touch like.<br><br>As we delve into an age of ideas. We all have them, no debate there, perhaps we should go deeper than what the TV barks, maybe listen closer to a wisper of human pain and Earthly dispostion, maladjustment acknowledgement. Big words through science yet not for war or politics, there is where the gun and brain seperate, the gun always becoming obsolete, glamorization (yet no burquas here) a procrastination.<br><br>And they wonder why the youth of are getting restless in a young nation, country, superpower, continent, venue, bar, house, blouse or trouser.<br><br>For 'we are all week and starving for mercy' stupid.<br><br>IFC had a rather odd movie called 'Naked' English/euro movie or sumthin<br>some farout thing it was<br><br>http://axisofjustice.org

so, it seems it wasn't just djstephan and me who thought it was a theatre. however people don't like to hear the awful truth sometimes. they rather dismiss it. and if the truth can't be dismissed than they just blame the messenger. Michael Moore is a moron. djstephan is stuipid. iraszl knows nothing. well, i understand. it's disturbing to see your comfi world shake.<br><br>"I think that gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman."

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> it's disturbing to see your comfi world shake<p><hr></blockquote><p>I got this letter from Michael Moore's news letter, but I posted it to "shake things up." As much as I agree with this, is not as much as others disagree.<br>Its fun to ruffle feathers sometimes (oh no pun intended).<br><br>

Bush's turkey raises questions from BBC News. I guess it is not just Michael Moore.<br><br>

I don't see what's the big deal about a photo op turkey? That's what politicians do. That's why Hilary was there too. <br><br>

Glad to see things at The People's Republic of MC have not changed. All the same characters pretending they don't know that Bowling For Columbine is a pack of half truths and misleading info. <br><br>Click<br><br>
