A bloody Moore-der

Christopher Hitchens absolutely shreds Michael Moore and his ludicrous new movie in this must read column. He takes an axe to Moore's facts, eviscerates his character, and bludgeons his artistic ability. The money quote:

To describe this film as dishonest and demagogic would almost be to promote those terms to the level of respectability. To describe this film as a piece of crap would be to run the risk of a discourse that would never again rise above the excremental. To describe it as an exercise in facile crowd-pleasing would be too obvious. Fahrenheit 9/11 is a sinister exercise in moral frivolity, crudely disguised as an exercise in seriousness. It is also a spectacle of abject political cowardice masking itself as a demonstration of "dissenting" bravery.
And it just keeps getting better...
