I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

Dude - he's still being listened to

Salon.com have a excerpt from Michael Moore's new book "Dude, Where's My Country?" for us all to peruse:

What is the worst lie a president can tell?

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."

Or ...

"He has weapons of mass destruction -- the world's deadliest weapons -- which pose a direct threat to the United States, our citizens and our friends and allies."

One of those lies got a president impeached. The other lie not only got the liar who told it the war he wanted, but also resulted in huge business deals for his friends and virtually assures him a landslide victory in the next election.

i can't decide whether to still dislike the smell of Moore for his idiotic solutions to problems. In the last book, his solution to the Northern Ireland peace process was to make all the people convert to Catholicism. I quote:

Convert the Protestants of Northern Ireland to Catholicism.
That's right. No more bickering and battling over religion when everyone belongs to the same religion!

ummmmm.? He's interesting because he raises the game and gets people talking. Even if some of his ideas are a bit far-fetched, the fact that over a million people have read them makes them more interesting to read just for the fact that OTHER people find him interesting. He's exciting and controvertial and I can't decide whether to love him or hate him, but I'll read him all the same.

Anyway, it's selling well:
