John Kerry Defends Michael Moore... On The Daily Kos

He chooses his battles well. Not for liberating Iraq, but definitely for defending the honor of Michael Moore:

But nothing moved Kerry to speak his mind online.

Nothing, that is, until a television talk-show host compared a film director with a terrorist on the run. When MSNBC's Chris Matthews played hardball with Michael Moore by comparing Moore with Osama bin Laden, only then did Kerry feel compelled to join the conversation at Daily Kos.

"There's something that doesn't sit right with me when, on the day Osama bin Laden resurfaced in a disturbing audio tape, cable television ends up in a game of name-calling as a war protester is compared to Osama bin Laden," Kerry began in a post that segued into a disjointed Bush- and media-bashing session.

"Here's a subject suited for true hard ball, on [Matthews'] "Hardball": four years of failure [by the Bush administration] -- enough is enough. Why hasn't Osama bin Laden been captured or killed, and how will he be destroyed before he next appears on tape to spread his disgusting message? That discussion -- rather than criticizing American citizens who exercise their right to free speech and express dissenting opinions -- is the discussion that America needs."

The Daily Kos community celebrated Kerry's presence in their world. The entry generated nearly 1,200 comments, and a follow-up "thank you" post from Kerry had generated nearly 700 more by this evening. "A man who received more votes than any other man in the history of the U.S. (if you actually counted votes accurately in 2004) just posted a diary on our little progressive group blog," one reader commented. "A-Mazing!"

Meanwhile, Decision '08 has caught
an old post by Michael Moore taking credit for just this:

3,000 people were killed and [bin Ladin is] laughing in [Bush's] face. Why did you [Bush] stop our Special Forces from going after him? Why did you forget about bin Laden on the DAY AFTER 9/11 and tell your terrorism czar to concentrate on Iraq instead?

There he was, OBL, all tan and rested and on videotape (hey, did you get the feeling that he had a bootleg of my movie? Are there DVD players in those caves in Afghanistan?

Emphasis added by Decision '08.

So, Michael Moore apparently thinks Osama bin Ladin sounds a lot like him.

Maybe Kerry should talk to his hero before making an ass out of himself on the Daily Kos.
