Moore Takedown

I realize that linking to something after it has been posted by Andrew Sullivan is the blogging equivalent of throwing a matchstick onto a forest fire...or something like that. But this Christopher Hitchens review of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911 is so good that I just had to say "ditto". Referring to a previous debate he had with Moore, and in response to Moore's threats to sue the film's critics for libel, Hitch calls him out:

I think we can agree that the film is so flat-out phony that "fact-checking" is beside the point. And as for the scary lawyers—get a life, or maybe see me in court. But I offer this, to Moore and to his rapid response rabble. Any time, Michael my boy. Let's redo Telluride. Any show. Any place. Any platform. Let's see what you're made of.

I'd pay to see that.
