You ought to love Michael Moore because he lies in his documentaries. Lies and distortion wouldn't be so prevalent in our political discourse if they were not effective. Sticking to the truth is just a noble way to lose. The truth will never be enough to get the overfed, undereducated and terminally distracted illiterati to act.
