Michael Moore, miffed at criticism from Fred Thompson for his trip to the health care nirvana that is Cuba, has challenged the actor, former senator and possible GOP presidential candidate, to a debate.
It seems that Moore discovered that Thompson is a fan of Cuban cigars, and is therefore being hypocritical in supporting a trade embargo with Cuba and criticizing Michael’s trip. Moore made the trip to do research for his movie about how lousy the U.S. healthcare system is compared to Cuba.
Incidentally, Moore got to Cuba faster and used less fuel because he bump-drafted Jimmy Carter and Danny Glover on the way there.
You can tell how great Cuba is by all the rafts that are floating from Florida to Havana. The healthcare in Cuba was so great that Moore and his entire crew… returned to the U.S. Too much to hope for, I guess.
Here’s a quote from the Time article that Moore highlights:
“Counter-terrorism agency investigating Michael Moore puts more staff on Cuban travel restrictions than tracking Iraqi terrorists”
Whoa, wait a minute. There are terrorists in Iraq? Admissions like this could chip away at the styrofoam foundation upon which Moore’s ideological house is built.
At any rate, if Michael Moore and Fred Thompson debate, who will win? Why, the caterer, of course.
