where IS my country, dude?
October 26, 2003 07:22 PM

Every American who hasn't yet needs to march right out and read Michael Moore's new book "Dude, Where's My Country?"

Immediately. I kid you not. I've always enjoyed Moore's movies, which tend to both sadden and inspire to action, but his other writing has generally pissed me off. "Stupid White Men" was like the Rush Limbaugh of liberalism - given to broad, sweeping generalizations, funny and occasionally relevant, but mean and generally small-minded. New book - total exception. The last two chapters are brilliant - all about how liberal Americans really are and how to help your "Republican" friends and family realize this.

Also, it appears he presaged Wesley Clark's presidential run. That wacky Moore!

Seriously, seriously. Read this book. Slug through the parts you disagree with. It might change your mind.
