Michael Moore Blogs About Us

MegaphoneMichael Moore's latest blog entry is aptly named "Michael Moore Statement on Canadian Election". In it, he hopes our threat to elect a Conservative government tomorrow is a joke, or as he calls it, "reverse irony". Here's a taste of what he's written.

These are no ordinary times, and as you go to the polls on Monday, you do so while a man running the nation to the south of you is hoping you can lend him a hand by picking Stephen Harper because he's a man who shares his world view. Do you want to help George Bush by turning Canada into his latest conquest? Is that how you want millions of us down here to see you from now on? The next notch in the cowboy belt? C'mon, where's your Canadian pride? I mean, if you're going to reduce Canada to a cheap download of Bush & Co., then at least don't surrender so easily. Can't you wait until he threatens to bomb Regina? Make him work for it, for Pete's sake.

His entry has pissed me off. Not because he's an arrogant American belittling us but because he's bloody well right. I hate the idea of that party in power in my country. Twins from Bolton has me thinking about the undecided voters. There may be more than we think, and they may like the idea of a Conservative government as much as I do. Maybe this is all a joke and we aren't really about to elect a guy "who should really be running for governor of Utah".

Do you believe in miracles?
