The Forgotten Award

Michael Moore is hardly shy in reminding people about the Oscar he won for his "documentary" Bowling for Columbine, nor in reminding them about the Palme D'Or he received in Cannes for Fraudenheit 9/11 (wish I could say that I made that up, but I found it via QandO). However, there's one award that Mike has received that he has been somewhat reticent to discuss:

In November 2001, Mikey was the recipient of The New Republic's much coveted "Idiocy Watch" award, for the most idiotic comment made in the wake of the 9/11 atrocities.

Mind you, Mike beat out some pretty stiff competition, from both sides of the political aisle. First rate idiotarians such as Ann Coulter and Ted Rall. How did Mike do it? By coming up with this incisive piece of wisdom:

"Many families have been devastated tonight. This just is not right. They did not deserve to die. If someone did this to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people who DID NOT VOTE for him! Boston, New York, DC, and the planes' destination of California--these were places that voted AGAINST Bush!" --Michael Moore,, September 12

Yes, why did the mean terrorists have to kill people who voted AGAINST Bush? Because if they had killed people who voted FOR Bush, well that would have been okay. Perhaps the hijackers could have gone around to the passengers on each of the planes and asked them who they voted for, before deciding whether or not to crash them? Truly this man understands the radical Islamist mindset far better than any of us. He shouldn't be making films, he should be a counterterrorism analyst. Just think how we could profit from his insights.
