First question: Why does Moore endorse Clark, when Dean is right up Moore's alley? Because, like Moore, Clark is a conspiracy theorist. For two years now, Clark has insisted that the Bush White House called him on 9/11 to go on record on CNN that Saddam was responsible for 9/11. Ostensibly, this would justify a war with Iraq and deflect the Bush's dealings with Saudi Arabia. My guess is that this conspiracy theory is a major thesis in Moore's next film, linking Bush to al Queda. P.S. Clark now says it wasn't the White House that called him, but "someone from Canada."
Second question: Why does Moore endorse Clark? Moore always looks for famous people who support his views, people one wouldn't think support his views. This time, it's a General. After the Academy Awards, he was proud to claim that the Pope and the Dixie Chicks were on his side.
Third question: Why does FAZ publish Moore's article? Because no one else has written an article in support of Clark. Clark still hasn't figured out if he's against the Iraq war or not, or who he voted for in the 80's, or if he's a Democrat or Republican.
P.S. Isn't it wonderful to see how Moore makes a big deal about his depression after winning the Academy Award? How many people are in mourning after winning this Award? He was depressed, because he made an ass of himself, and everyone booed him.

Moore is NOT endorsing Clark, he was just asking him to run.

"This is not an endorsement. For me, it's too early for that." Moore goes on to note that he likes Howard Dean and Dennis Kucinich. Since Clark is being parachuted into the race as the un-Dean, it seems unlikely that Moore will continue to fancy him (especially since Clark's since-recanted comment that he would have voted for the war resolution).

Matt Drudge published this speech from Wesley Rodham Clark on his website on 09-25-03. (Maybe someone should tell Mike Moore):

During extended remarks delivered at the Pulaski County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 11, 2001, General Clark declared: "And I'm very glad we've got the great team in office, men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Paul O'Neill - people I know very well - our president George W. Bush. We need them there."

Clark praised Reagan for improving the military:

"We were really helped when President Ronald Reagan came in. I remember non-commissioned officers who were going to retire and they re-enlisted because they believed in President Reagan."

Clark continued: "That's the kind of President Ronald Reagan was. He helped our country win the Cold War. He put it behind us in a way no one ever believed would be possible. He was truly a great American leader. And those of us in the Armed Forces loved him, respected him, and tremendously admired him for his great leadership."

Michael Moore ist natürlich ein grosses Feindbild für Sie, da er (zugegebenerweise auf populistische Weise, nicht anders als Sie selbst) Dinge anspricht, über die zu reden Sie scheinbar für "politisch unkorrekt" halten.

Ein Grund für seine Popularität ist ja das Lächerlichmachen der Scheinheiligkeit der bei Ihnen so beliebten US-Regierung und Wirtschaftselite und ihrer Ideologie.

Wie stehen Sie eigentlich dazu, dass die sowohl von der Bush-Regierung, als auch von Ihnen, als auch von WTO und IWF so propagierten "Reformen", die ja auch von der Ihnen so verhassten Rot-Grünen Regierung in Deutschland durchgeführt werden, hauptsächlich die kleinen Leute mit wenig Einkommen und den unteren Mittelstand betreffen, die die ganze Last dieser "Reformen" zu tragen haben.

Wie stehen Sie dazu, dass tatsächlich - in Amerika, in Deutschland, weltweit - durch die von Ihnen so propagierten Reformen die Reichen auf schon obszön zu nennende Weise reicher, die Armen aber ärmer werden, die Einkommensschere immer weiter auseinanderklafft. Mit Fleiss hat das ja wenig zu tun, dass ein Shareholder kaum noch Steuern zahlen und ein Manager phantastische Abfindungen erhalten kann, während andere Leute sich ehrenwert abrackern und dennoch auf keinen grünen Zweig kommen.

Die Bilanzen der grossen Konzerne sind hervorragend, wenn sie massenhaft Leute entlassen.

Haben Sie nicht auch die Befürchtung, das eine solche Polarisierung und Ungerechtigkeit, die ja keinesfalls im Interesse des Durchschnittsbürgers ist und eigentlich nur sehr wenigen dient, zu einer Wiedererstarkung marxistischer Ideen in Europa und nicht zuletzt auch in Amerika führen könnte? Bitte löschen Sie nicht wieder meinen Kommentar.
