Michael Moore, Kindly STFU


From (they've got the video as well):

'BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - Get this: Michael Moore, the filmmaker, had this to say about the onslaught of Hurricane Gustav on the eve of the Republican National Convention.

"I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in Heaven.'' Moore said with a chuckle in a televised interview.

"That it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for Day one of the Republican convention up in the twin cities at the top of the Mississippi River,'' Moore said, in an interview with MSMBC's Keith Olbermann, on Countdown.'

My jaw dropped reading this. This is exactly what Jerry Falwell said about Katrina, that New Orleans was being punished by God. And now Moore is saying the same thing from the other side? Wishing mass destruction on an already-devastated area to support your political views... this is okay, exactly how? Becoming your enemy does not defeat your enemy; it makes you a big ol' jerky hypocrite.

Well, he did catch himself long enough to say that, well, of course he doesn't actually want anyone to get hurt:

'Moore quickly sobered up and added: "Certainly, I hope nobody gets hurt. I hope everybody's taking cover....

"Let's hope things get better.'''

What a guy!
