Michael Moore's Internet Uprising

Far be it from me to question Michael Moore's motives, or even suggest that he's trying to put lipstick on a pig. But when he says he's releasing Slacker Uprising as a free Internet download -- and not as a theatrical feature -- because he thought it would be "a nice way to celebrate" his 20th anniversary as a filmmaker... Well, maybe, just maybe, the decision also had something to do with the critical response that greeted the film last year when it was shown at the Toronto Film Festival under the title Captain Mike Across America.

Ooooh, better be careful using that "lipstick on a pig" saying or you, too, will be accused of sexism toward Palin.

(Just kidding...I think.)
