FREE MICHAEL MOORE!
On the 4th of July, this link, via Moviecity News is too rich to pass up: “Urge Ashcroft to brand Michael Moore what he really is — a traitor to America!” headlines a petition by Patriotic Americans Boycotting Anti-American Hollywood found on the Web site Conservative Petitions.com. “Free speech isn’t free when it costs lives,” the Web site says as it argues that Moore’s Farenheit 911 is endangering the lives of our troops. Those who click on the petition will find their names forwarded to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert as well as your Congressmen and, of course, Big John Ashcroft.
Speaking of Ashcroft, join Moby, Ted Hope and John Cameron Mitchell as they judge Nerve.com’s The John Ashcroft Amateur Video Contest, in which contestants try to win $1,000 by filming the sexiest one-minute video containing a discussion of our Attorney General. The 15 finalists can be streamed on the site.
