Karl Rove's Secret Weapon

From the Age :
Controversial American documentary maker Michael Moore is considering making a movie about the US government's lapses that surrounded Hurricane Katrina.

The MSNBC website quoted a source close to Moore as saying that the issue "has all the elements that made Fahrenheit 911 such a powerful film ... the political outrage, the human suffering and the incredible footage".

"There is much to be said and done about the manmade annihilation of New Orleans, caused NOT by a hurricane but by the very specific decisions made by the Bush administration in the past four and a half years," he wrote.

"Do not listen to anyone who says we can discuss all this later. No, we can't.

"Our country is in an immediate state of vulnerability.

"More hurricanes, wars, and other disasters are on the way, and a lazy bunch of self-satisfied lunatics are still running the show."
And it's All Bush's Fault! He personally destroyed New Orleans because... because... well, just Because!

Given the stunning success of Fahrenheit 9/11 in alienating the middle ground, such overblown and fact-free propaganda will no doubt be worth a few percentage points to the Republicans.

For a simplistic but still reasonably accurate alternate view, see LiberalScum. Personally I've always seen Liberal Idiotarians more as the Dregs myself... it's the Paleocon Idiotarians are the Scum.
