I would have thought the same could be said of the film itself relative
to the left (except, perhaps, for the "meticulous" part).

What annoys me most about the film (and Michael Moore in general) is my
otherwise intelligent left-wing friends have allowed their hatred of
Bush to cloud their judgement into accepting Moore's propaganda as fact
(NB: not saying you, Jeff)

If it wasn't so depressing, I'd find it a fascinating study in how
propaganda works.

I can't wait till Bush loses so I don't have to hear so much about
Michael Moore.
