Fahrenheit 9/11

Cheered by supporters, Michael Moore previewed his Bush-bashing documentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," before a mostly Democratic audience in the nation's capital Wednesday night. Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe said he thought the film would play an important role in this election year. (What a coincidence! A movie about George W. Bush released before the election! Terry McAuliffe should be elected Vice President...of Obvious Town!)

The two-hour film depicts President Bush as lazy and oblivious to warnings in the summer of 2001 that al-Qaida was poised to strike. It also accuses the administration of manipulating the Sept. 11 attacks and fanning terrorism fears to win support for the Iraq war.

Dozens of fans greeted Moore outside the theater with applause and shouts of "Go Michael!" Moore, a fervent Bush critic, said he hopes the movie will get people to the ballot box in November. (Because if they go in October, it won't mean as much! Haha, I kill myself.)

-Seriously, go see the movie. It's still at the Normal Theatre. Four Dollars, I think you can afford it.
