POPCORN: Fire in the Cannes

On Saturday night, Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911, stole the show, and the Palm d'Or at the Cannes Film Fest. I'm sure that Sean Hannity will now declare that this film and this prize is evidence of the fanatical French and the Hollywood liberals conspiring to down a decent president and hurt middle class American (you know, the kind that want to "put a boot in your ass"). Of course, on the other side, one can now point to this decent film award a prize by
Tarentino and jury, not just the French, is critically acclaimed and is lacking distribution for solely political concerns. Welcome to Bush's America.

Don't worry, i'm not going to go on and on about how Bush is too irresponsible and un-edumacated to be a republican and too zealous and stubborn to be a democrat. I just find it odd that in Bush's moral America, The Real Cancun can find distribution, and The Swan can find a home on tv, but when it comes to a powerful message through the media, you better be speaking at midnight, on cable, or overseas. We need to get Fahrenheit 911 to the people, the one place where Mr. Rove doesn't want it.
