Does it ever end with this creep?

It seems Michael Moore is going to prey on the military again. In an announcement today by Simon & Schuster, Moore states that he has agreed to compile a collection of letters received by him from soldiers, much of it at his website. (Sorry, no link. I don't link to scum.)

Well, it is my sincerest hope that they don't vet those letters or their writers. I find immense pleasure in the snarky little daydream of him being hauled into civil court for publishing letters credited to persons who never sent them. How many of these letters were written fraudulently by staffers to bolster numbers on his website? We may never know, but I certainly hope they used the names of actual soldiers who can, in turn, screw him right back.

Better yet, let them go after him for publishing correspondence sent, pen and paper via traditional mail, with no explicit permission given for publishing. They never sought permission from Sgt. Damon after they licensed footage of him at Walter Reed Army Hospital from NBC. What makes anyone think his people will do any different with these letters.

Go ahead and publish it in November, Mikey. Leak your galleys, publish your exerpts in magazines and do your interviews all through October. We all recognize what you are doing. It won't work. All you will accomplish is another rape of men and women in BDU. It may win you friends in some circles, but in the great unwashed and ignorant heartland where people value loyalty, duty, service, and honor, you will generate little more than disgust.

Update: Moorewatch has decided to do an end-run on this crap. Go see what you can do to help out. Someone needs to call this creep for what he is, and I can think of none better than those he has injured the most.

Yup, let him screw himself over. He DOES realize that the author of a letter is the legal owner of its copyright, right? As in, J. D. Salinger was the legal owner of the copyright to all those sleazy letters he wrote to the young chick he had the affair with.

Guess michael moron isn't interested in the first-person accounts of people who survived this holocaust, is he?

The only good thing I can say about Michael Moore is that he is not as secretive as George Soros, may they both die penniless and with double doses of syphillis.

F*ck Michael Moore. If this country was half of what it was 200 years ago someone would have offed that fat son of a bitch or he would have been deported!

He'll get his come-uppance. It may be a long time in coming...but he'll be a miserable old man one of these days. Shit has a nasty way of going around, then coming around.

He's on the wrong side of history...and on the wrong side of morality...he'll get what he deserves in the end.

I hope this works. I'm new at e-blogging, but I am quickly becoming "addicted" to the support I get from reading other's opinions.

I have long felt that if Michael Moore doesn't like America, he should get his fat ass out of America and move to some country like Iran where he would probably be welcomed as the Living Legend he thinks he is. Then let him try and have free speech!

P.S. I'm live and work in Northern California -- San Francisco Bay Area.
I am doing my part for the spread of the truth by passing out homemade leaflets everywhere I go (and I go a lot of places since I'm a marketing rep) that encourage people to check out
One of my messages is: Don't check this site out unless you agree with John Kerry that we need a credible leader as President (and then the web address). Amazingly enough, there are quite a few people out there who are going to vote for Kerry, not because they like him, but because they hate Bush, and they only hate Bush because they half-pay attention to the liberal media and nobody's ever educated them!
Let's "broadside"* America in the next two months get the word out. Since the liberal press doesn't like the truth, WE THE PEOPLE are going to have to do the old-fashioned way.
