Man–I’m watching the Academy Awards, where virtually everyone has avoided political comments, until Michael Moore just won for Bowling for Columbine. He launches immediately into a diatribe about our “fictitious president” sending us into a war for fictitious reasons. Lots of booing. A few claps, but most of the people are really ticked. Everyone seems really embarassed.

Now it’s a few minutes later and Steve Martin comes up to say that “It’s so sweet backstage. The Teamsters are helping Michael Moore into the trunk of his limo…”

Only in America.
