Is That A Hypocritical Sack Of Shit On TV, Or Is It Just Michael Moore?

About a minute into this clip, the filmmaker proclaims that his morals as a Catholic preclude him from voting for Hillary Clinton, because, in case you haven't heard, she voted for a war. (WARNING: Contains Larry King)

Of course, Moore's concern for his soul didn't preclude him from supporting General Wesley Clark in the 2004 primaries. Having been a general, one could say that Clark had actually been in the war business: after all, he did conduct NATO's aerial bombardment of Yugoslavia during the Kosovo crisis. And in the 2004 general election, Moore campaigned for John Kerry, who had sat in the Senate and cast the same Yes vote on the Iraq War Resolution that Hillary Clinton did. Kerry even promised to do a better job of fighting that war, unlike Clinton's current vow to end it.

And while we're on the subject of the fashionable left, you may recall that last week the "progressive" PAC MoveOn.org rushed to climb on the Obama endorsement bandwagon. The last time they had been in the news was last September, when they ran their controversial "General Betray Us" ad, which led to our own Senator Boxturtle's resolution condemning the group. One of the Senators who voted against the measure was Hillary Clinton. Mr. Audacity of Hope? Recorded as "Not Voting". Fine job of remembering who has stood with you in the past, and who ducked out of the room, guys!
