Sometimes the press writes a headline so funny, I wish I'd have thought of it.

Imagine my surprise when I saw the headline "US filmmaker Michael Moore weighs in on Canada's election". Aside from the promotion to "filmmaker" from "propaganda specialist", saying that Michael Moore "weighs in" is hysterical.

I'm not skinny, but he's closing in on the third sizing category. For those not in the know, there's Regular, Large, and Oh-My-God-It's-Moving-Towards-Us!. He's a Ho-Ho shy of 400.

Of course, in his fantasy world that he lives in, he perceives every change in reality away from his fantasy as millions of people must be wrong. It could never occur to him that maybe he's wrong and millions of people have realized that the failed experiment that is Socialism isn't working.

In Michael's world, France is a model of progress, and the fact that people are prevented from working more than 35 hours a week is proof that unions work! Never mind the fact that France is rapidly sinking from NATO superpower to third-world toilet faster than Harry Belafonte's chances of being invited to the next Republican National Convention.
