“If you were to hang out with me here it won’t be five or 10 minutes before you see a Republican hug me. That is almost as entertaining as some of the films.”
Who said that?
Michael Moore, who wrote, filmed and produced the controversial film, Fahrenheit 9/11, is apparently benefiting from Republican “buyer’s remorse”. Moore has noticed that conservatives’ attitudes towards him have changed, sometimes radically so, from one year ago.
Used to traveling with security and encountering a barrage of hostility, Moore said he finds people now more accepting, even to the point Republicans are spontaneously hugging him.
Currently, Moore is putting the finishing touches on his new film, Sicko, which he describes as “a comedy about 45 million people with no health care in the richest country on earth.” The film is scheduled to be released in 2007.
Incidentally, I am one of those 45 million people without health care (I have been without medical and dental care for 2 full years, and counting).
