A note from Michael Moore

I ended up on Mr. Moore's mailing list. I enjoy his work and respect his tireless activism. TV Nation was genius work. That's why it got canceled so soon. But, without further ado . . .this is what I got this morning.

Friends,

Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq and who continues to support, in any way, this senseless, immoral, unwinnable war. Make no mistake about it: We, the majority of Americans, want this war ended -- and we will actively work to defeat each and every one of you who does not support an immediate end to this war.

Nearly every Democrat set to run for president in 2008 is responsible for this war. They voted for it or they supported it. That single, stupid decision has cost us 2,592 American lives and tens of thousands of Iraqi lives. Lieberman and Company made a colossal mistake -- and we are going to make sure they pay for that mistake. Payback time started last night.

I realize that there are those like Kerry and Edwards who have now changed their position and are strongly anti-war. Perhaps that switch will be enough for some to support them. For others, like me -- while I'm glad they've seen the light -- their massive error in judgment is, sadly, proof that they are not fit for the job. They sided with Bush, and for that, they may never enter the promised land.

To Hillary, our first best hope for a woman to become president, I cannot for the life of me figure out why you continue to support Bush and his war. I'm sure someone has advised you that a woman can't be elected unless she proves she can kick ass just as crazy as any man. I'm here to tell you that you will never make it through the Democratic primaries unless you start now by strongly opposing the war. It is your only hope. You and Joe have been Bush's biggest Democratic supporters of the war. Last night's voter revolt took place just a few miles from your home in Chappaqua. Did you hear the noise? Can you read the writing on the wall?

To every Democratic Senator and Congressman who continues to back Bush's War, allow me to inform you that your days in elective office are now numbered. Myself and tens of millions of citizens are going to work hard to actively remove you from any position of power.

If you don't believe us, give Joe a call.

Yours,
Michael Moore

I just called Bill Nelson's office and told his staffer essentially the same thing. I've given up, though, on having any impact on his position on Iraq or any other issue of concern to me. He's running against Katherine Harris and has an enormous lead, and his attitude seems to be why should he care about progressives? He's a democrat in name only, and if he had a democratic challenger, like Lieberman did, maybe that would make a difference.

yeah, but we gotta do what we can. remember that the founding fathers formed "committees of correspondence" long before their thoughts turned to revolution. had the british gotten it through their heads that all they wanted to be was "englishmen" rather than colonial step children things might have been so very different. being from not only red state but mormon red myself i have no illusions on the small impact i can make even with great effort. but i keeps on a trudgin'.
