Osama And Michael...Friends

Liberals everywhere have been in a fit of rage at Chris Mathews claims that Bin Laden sounded a lot like Michael Moore.

Anklebiting Pundits has done a very fine job of comparing the two. Here's some examples from them.

Who Will Win The War And Those Fighting Against America In Iraq
Iraq has become a point of attraction and restorer of (our) energies. Only metal breaks metal, and our situation, thank God, is only getting better and better, while your situation is the opposite of that. . ..Don't let your strength and modern arms fool you. They win a few battles but lose the war. Patience and steadfastness are much better. We were patient in fighting the Soviet Union with simple weapons for 10 years and we bled their economy and now they are nothing. In that there is a lesson for you. Finally, I say that war will go either in our favor or yours. If it is the former, it means your loss and your shame forever, and it is headed in this course.
Michael Moore
The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not "insurgents" or "terrorists" or "The Enemy." They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win.

Polls About Iraq
But I plan to speak about the repeated errors your President Bush has committed in comments on the results of your polls that show an overwhelming majority of you want the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.. .And so to return to the issue, I say that results of polls please those who are sensible, and Bush's opposition to them is a mistake.
Michael Moore
I would like to extend my hand and invite you to join us, the mainstream American majority. We, the people -- that's the majority of the people -- share these majority opinions:
1. Going to war was a mistake -- a big mistake.
2. You and your administration misled us into this war
3. We want the war ended and our troops brought home.
4. We don't trust you.

"You know, it's funny, I've never seen the left outraged when someone like Harry Belafonte says that Bush is the number one terrorist in the world, or when Senate Democrats smeared Alito so much that Alito's wife was brought to tears, or when Hillary Clinton says the House is run like a "plantation," or when Robert Byrd used the word "ni%%^@#" on television, or how about when went Senate candidate Paul Hackett compared the Republican Party to Osama bin Laden..." - Blogs For Bush
