Michael Moore: "I've Run Out Of Ideas."

Michael Moore had ideas?


Moore takes parting shot at Bush in rockstar flick.

Filmmaker Michael Moore on Saturday predicted a landslide victory for the Democrats in the 2008 presidential election, but is taking no chances, rallying US liberals in his latest documentary.

"The potential for a (Democratic) landslide is enormous. People do not want to vote for the Republicans," he told reporters at the Toronto film festival premiere of his "Captain Mike Across America."

"The United States is a liberal country," he insisted.

"The majority of Americans are liberal. They hate that word and they'll never use it, but if you ask them, 'Do you think women should be paid the same as men; do you think that we need assault weapons laws; do you think the minimum wage should be raised' ... the majority of Americans take a liberal position on every issue, except capital punishment."

But voters were simply not presented with a strong-enough Democratic candidate in Kerry, he said. "They don't want to go into a polling booth and vote for a weenie for president."


Ask me those questions. Never mind, I'll ask myself.

Tug, do you think that women should be paid the same as men?

Tug: "Absolutely. My Wife makes more money than I do, and she doesn't work as many hours. I think that this is very unfair. Never mind that she invested in a college educataion for herself, she shouldn't be paid more than a man, no matter what."

"Actually, I believe that excellence should be rewarded, even at the expense of mediocrity. Sex does not enter into the equasion."

Tug, do you think that we need assault weapons laws?

Tug: "Absolutely. I believe that each and every American Citizen over the age of 18 should be required to own an assault weapon, and a supply of amunition. Those of us who can afford that type of thing should be allowed to own BlackHawk Helicopters, Tanks, and even Battleships and Aircraft Carriers. The purpose of the Second Ammendment is not to permit us to protect ourselves from one another, nor to allow us to hunt game, it is to allow us to protect our Freedom from oppressive Government.

"So if the Government can have a Nuclear Weapon, then I should be allowed to own one as well. Any governmental restriction on my ability to do so is a violation of my Constitutional Rights."

Tug, Do you believe that the Minimum Wage should be raised?

Tug: "Absolutely. I think it should be $250.00 per hour. (And time and a half for overtime.) America's Teenagers need extra money in order to pay the high tuition costs for College, which have been caused by Government loans and Pell Grants. The more Teenagers who can pay their own way through school on their own, the less Government money they will need. (Look into who it is that actually works for Minimum Wage.) "

Are these "Liberal" positions, in the modern sense of the word?

But then again, this was Michael Moore, and as far as I can tell, he has only ever had two ideas in his life.

1.) Tear down America.

2.) Tear down President Bush.

So, if he is indeed out of ideas now, that is a good thing.
