19. One could also ask how many believed him when he lied about Gore (and Bush) in 2000?
That's possibly a more important question, since his endorsement of Clark was not harmful to the nation. His smear campaign in 2000 played a role in inflicting Smirk on us. You can go even farther and say his attacks against the Clinton admin and the political system in general in the 1990s helped pave the way for the clusterf*ck that we're in now as well. (Moore told people to vote for a Ficus plant in a Senate election - - I can't remember whether it was the 1998 or 2000 Senate election - - because "there's no difference between the Democrats and Republicans".)

Just to be clear - - I'm not saying that people should shun Michael Moore for what he did in the last century. He had every right to support any candidate and any party of his choosing. Additionally people change, they evolve. But if you're looking for bitter irony in relation to the current hero worship of Michael Moore, I think his anti-Democratic past is a richer area to mine.
