Ever hear of Michael Moore?

Do you know anyone in here who has used him as a source, anyone that constantly uses his words without thinking for themselves, or for that matter anyone who even says that Michael Moore is where they get their information from?

I can't think of one, but I can think of plenty examples of all three from multiple posters of the right and am talk show hosts.

Moderates???

Just use your search function and travel back to 2004 and you should find plenty of people that in some way shape or form have used his fahrenheit 911 or his other movies as a source for things they have said in here.

But I was speaking more to the general idea of people(outside the forum) on the left not worshiping blowhard talking heads. I think if your being objective, you'll find this type of thing on both the right and the left.

I'm looking at this as objectively as possible. I think Obermann and left radio would have much higher ratings if what you say is true... I just don't think the left needs it as much as the right.

I'm still not exactly sure who Keith Olberman is. . .I don't think I'd recognize him if I saw him on TV. And I don't know what the Kos is. . . .

This is just laughable. I challenge you to find a post by a "left-leaning" member of this forum that supports this statement.

I can't stand Michael Moore. I've refused to watch any of his films since Bowling for Columbine (which I liked--but ever since then, I've tended to feel that he is dishonest in his work).

No, the right is just better at it.

Obama unfortunately is a COWARD and is a terrible Commander in Chief. Given the chance to clean up the mess, he's been standing around telling the world he's still "thinking" about it. In the mean time the terrorists (Taliban and Al Queda) are busy killing us off and building momentum in the war all because we have this guy in the White House traveling the world and unable to make a decision other than to tell his staff to make more travel plans. Clueless and gutless Obama, "YES HE CAN" screw it all up!!!! You know that guy in the White House that wants to be "exempt" from the Obamacare plan, while the rest of us become the guinea pig.

Having his Snowbama shaved ice (lemon-lime, cherry and passion-guava syrups) in Hawaii. I can't believe they zoom in on him that close when he's eating-but the first one would make a good new avatar if I didn't already have one.

Huffington Post

Amanda Simpson, who was named by President Obama to be senior technical adviser for the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security, has worked in the field for over 30 years. But prominent figures on the religious right are claiming that she was picked only as part of some transsexual agenda.

"Is there going to be a transgender quota now in the Obama administration?" asked Peter LaBarbera, president of the anti-gay group Americans for Truth. "How far does this politics of gay and transgender activism go? Clearly this is an administration that is pandering to the gay lobby."

"Simpson's nomination was forwarded through to President Obama by a gay activist group, making it appear that this appointment of a male-to-female 'transgender' activist to a high level Commerce Department position to be payback to his far-left base for their political support," a spokeswoman for Focus on the Family said in statement.

Matt Barber, associate dean at Jerry Fallwell's Liberty University, said the appointment "boggles the mind" and said that while African-Americans might deserve special treatment, transgender people don't.

"This isn't like appointing an African-American in order to try to provide diversity and right some kind of discriminatory wrong," he said. "This is about political correctness."

Of course, as Steven Benen points out, none of these angry conservatives even consider that Simpson was simply the best candidate for the job.

Simpson herself anticipated this reaction: "[There will be] questions like: Is this a token? Are you here to do a job or just to fill a quota or appease other people? In that regard it makes it a bit more difficult," she said. "I'm sure I will have to do and intend to do a far superior job than any other person. But I'm sure I will always be second-guessed."

David Brody at the Christian Broadcasting Network also predicted a right-wing backlash and argued that the right thing to do would be to not hire transsexuals, for that reason: "The transgender thing doesn't play well with millions of conservative Evangelicals. ... I understand President Obama won't be after die hard conservative Evangelicals in 2012 but let's remember that moves like this don't play well with the million of conservative Independent voters and Catholics who will be up for grabs again in 2012 as well."

Transgender rights supporters, however, are cheered that Obama didn't let fear of bigotry dictate his choice. "If you look at the job she's taking and at her résumé, this is not a quota appointee," Mara Keisling, of the National Center for Transgender Equality, told the New York Post. "She's unquestionably qualified for the job. The story is . . . not that [Obama] appointed one of us but that finally we have an administration for which that's not a deal breaker."

why does anyone care what this guy has to say? how does this group have any credibility whatsoever?

his website is hilarious -- it describes, in graphic detail, specific sex acts, and one can almost imagine how much it turns LaBarbera on as he tries to bring you every last ounce of Truth about gay people.
