Michael Moore Wants People's Choice Award

Because, you know, it's the only award that really matters. Because it's the people who choose it. And whatever the hell else they always say:

“Now, normally I wouldn’t make a very big deal out of something like this,” Moore writes on his Web site. “But then a group of top Republicans took out a full page ad in USA Today. [and among other things they] issued a not-so-subtle threat to the Academy Awards voters that, in essence, said don’t even THINK about nominating ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ for Best Picture. And [Fox newsman] Bill O’Reilly recently bellowed that if the Oscars recognize my work this year, Middle America will boycott Hollywood. Oops. I guess he spoke too soon. Because now along comes Middle America’s favorite awards show, the People’s Choice.”

"Normally I wouldn’t make a very big deal out of something like this"?!?! Is this Michael Moore we're talking about? The first time I ever saw this loathesome toad was on Letterman -- years ago, hyping Roger & Me -- and he did almost nothing else in the interview but name the awards his little home movie had won in various regional film competitions.

And I haven't stopped hearing about his various awards -- almost always from his own misformed frogmouth -- since. For God's sake, I know this fat sack of fat's resume better than I know my own.

This vile pustule plugs his movies as relentlessly as Arnold Schwarzegger, but it's much worse, because 1) Schwarzenegger does it with a kind of archly-knowing hucksterism and humor, and 2), Schwarzenegger is a promotional Terminator. That's what he does. That's all he does. And he will not rest, he will not sleep, he will not stop until you've gone out to see Junior at least twice.

But, you know, Moore normally doesn't make a "very big deal" out of stuff like this.

Since the increasingly-nasty Andrew Sullivan has named a mean-spirited award after the indispensible "God knows, I'm not the easiest person to offend," apparently blithely unaware that his blog consists of very little except him taking excitable umbrage at-- well, at just about anything at all. If a Republican farts in Poughkipsee, Andrew Sullivan has to note how "gob-smackingly vile" he finds that theocratic flatulance.

So the first winner of the Andrew Sullivan Award For Vain Self-Delusions: Michael "I don't normally make a very big deal out of this sort of thing" Moore.

Please let me know if you make similar finds.

And...

You can vote against Fahrenheit 9-11 here (UPDATE: Voting now closed!). I would suggest everyone voting for one film so that Moore definitely doesn't win -- I picked The Incredibles, a movie I haven't seen but which people seem to like -- but make sure you vote for something.

It's so childish. Can you believe the overweening ego of this dick, campaigning so hard for some meaningless internet-voting award?

Update: That Link... should work-- it's the link from Moore's site, that brought me right to the category I wanted to vote in -- but it seems for some reason to not be working.

This link brings you to the People's Choice Awards, but then you have to scroll through a lot of other categories to get to the one you want.

Sorry. Don't know what else to do.

Voting Now Closed?! Yeahp, the link doesn't work because three minutes after I put it up, they closed the voting.

That's my kind of timing.
