Moore Invites Bush to Crawford Screening

Xinhuanet – Moore invites Bush to Crawford screening

Oscar-winning US film director Michael Moore publicly invited US President George W. Bush on Tuesday to attend the screening of his Bush-bashing documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” in Bush’s hometown in Texas. Moore issued his invitation to Bush on his Web site, saying he wanted a chance to thank Bush personally for starring in the film,which will be screened Wednesday night in Crawford, where Bush has his ranch. “And let’s face it, you’ve got some of the funniest lines in the film!” Moore wrote.

I must admit, this is actually pretty funny. I’m not sure Bush shouldn’t take him up on it and have a Mark Cuban-Dairy Queen moment. If he pulls it off, he goes up 10 points in the national polls overnight.


Speaking of Mark Cuban and Dairy Queen, the man still has it:

If the league hadn̢۪t fined me $500,000 dollars I would let this little note just slide by and not mention it. Given their reaction to my comments suggesting that this individual could not manage a Dairy Queen, I find it relevant to mention that he has since had a career change. The former NBA head of officiating left his position at the NBA to become an assistant football coach at Bloomsburg University in Pa. I wish him all the best in his new career and wish he would have started it sooner. It would have saved me a lot of money.

    Bush should go to the screening as it would note for a very comical event that would boost Bush’s likability. I’m still not sure why Moore is even screening it in Crawford, TX though. Waco is showing it and it’s not that far away. At least this statement from Moore keeps him and his film in the news.
