Yes, it’s true — Michael Moore admitted that he’s in the much maligned “upper one percent” of Americans, and I’m not just talking about body fat percentage.

From MSNBC:

Anti-capitalist film director Michael Moore has drawn fire in recent days for standing with the Occupy Wall Street protesters while failing to acknowledge that he is part of the “1 percent,” not the 99 percent.

Now the director of “Capitalism: A Love Story” and other documentaries has come clean and admitted that he is indeed among the nation’s wealthiest citizens, but without providing details of just how rich he is.

In a post titled “Life Among the 1%” on his blog “Open Mike,” Moore recalls how he made his first millions when he sold the distribution rights to his 1989 breakthrough hit “Roger & Me.”

It goes on from there, but suffice to say Moore is continually trying to create an alternate reality where he can get rich via capitalism while speaking out against wealth and capitalism without being a hypocrite. It’s a reality that only make sense in his own head.

    And… when it was Roger & Me, I thought it was refeshing..! It really was something of a breakthrough ( pre internet which Doug and Michelle will RULE one day! )

    But then he tried to turn it into a 'franchise' and it became more like Boston's 2nd album… Kah-thud. Ask Tom Sholz how 'easy' it is to follow up on that level of success and expectation. They couldn't DELIVER either!

    I wish Sean would just stop 'interviewing' him and let Michael Mo' mo' implode on his OWN dime.

    "It`s a reality that only makes sense in his own head." A delusional reality that exists in the heads of a lot of "redistributionist hypocrites !

    He reminds me of Peter Griffin from the Family Guy, except that Peter is much classier.

    It does seem hypocritical, but we still have to look at it from a practical point of view, we all are allowed to make money. It is possible to be rich and opposed to people that make money and make other people miserable.
