Michael Moore leads the way in the "stop Warren" effort... but you have to listen to his podcast to get the details.

I said I wanted to do a separate post about whatever it was Michael Moore said that got Drudge to link with the teaser "MICHAEL MOORE: She Stuck Knife in Back...," but on clicking, I see it's a whole podcast...

... so that's not blog ready. That's a side road I won't take the off-ramp for. I will continue down the highway and go for the debate transcript. I've already done my close analysis of 16 seconds of the after-debate gesturing between Bernie and Warren, and what I really want to do is to see what they said about the miniature controversy that's been stirred up over whether Bernie ever said that a woman cannot beat Trump.

Just as I have no time — well, really, patience — for a podcast right now, I could not put up with sitting through the 2-hour debate last night. I DVR'd it, and I started to watch it, but it didn't begin until 8, and I'd already maxed out my TV-watching capacity on the "Jeopardy!" "Greatest of All Time" show and the Trump Milwaukee rally, both of which started at 7. I watched Trump until there was enough lead time on the "Jeopardy!" recording to skip the ads, then watched "Jeopardy!," then turned to the debate. The first question was so idiotic — an open invitation to just say why you're "best prepared to be commander-in-chief" — that I gave up on pushing myself to watch.

Warren stuck the knife in the front not the back.

Bernie is a rich old white guy from the whitest state in the country. How dare he run for the Dem nomination.

Curious George said...

That picture of Moore is what he wishes he looked like.

Lucid-Ideas said...

That avatar. It's just like the 'Feminist Frequency' chicks, animating your way to imagining you're twice as attractive as you actually are.

You don't look like that Michael. But you could with a one way trip to Venezuela.

Achilles said...

There are honorable ways to attack people.

What Warren is doing to Bernie is what leftists have been doing to their opponents for decades.

Now that the shoe is on Bernie’s foot they are mad.

This will destroy Warren’s campaign.

But Bernie supporters want re-education camps. They will still call their opponents racist sexists.

mccullough said...

Bernie is a sexist pig. And a racist.

And a whiner. And a fucking slouch. Stand up straight.

A nicer version of what I came to say...

Found them. The avatars I mentioned above at the link below:

This is how people like Moore really see themselves.

Not even if I actually cared what Micheal says/thinks. The only thing I would trust his opinion on would be where to fine the best deal on a mid-week buffet.

I had no idea Moore was still in his 30’s

Nonapod said...

Yeah, I always find it amusing when people use overly generous caricatures as avatars. It's a common phenomenon among the Twitter SJW set. They'll use some cartoon of a pretty girl or whatever, but in meatspace they often turn out to be hideous blue-haired land whales festooned with tatoos and piercings.

In fairness, I'm not really a 9 armed squid.

I need to update my photo.

Lucid-Ideas said...

@Nonapod

Double-rats, I thought you might be one of those super-smart cephalopods, like that one that can predict the outcome of soccer matches.

My avatar is of a EG&G Rapatronic image of a 'shot cab' fluorescing with X-Rays approximately 10 nanoseconds (3 1/2 shakes) after the detonation of 'shot Turk' during Operation Teapot. The shot cab has been turned transparent by the X-Rays and MeV Neutrons emanating from the full fission-yield (now complete) of the physics package. Contrary to popular belief, the nuclear fireball is the 2nd emanation during a nuclear implosion, the 1st are X-Rays and neutrons which travel at roughly 10% the speed of light.

I feel it's apt, both because I know a lot about nuclear weapons (no I won't tell you how), and represents my intellectual ferocity.

Roughcoat said...

Shame on the Democrat Party. Shame on the House of Ptolomy. He was a consul of Rome.

What???

Moore, the walking skin suit, is a leftwing propagandist commie excusing whore.

He and Bernie own lots of homes.

"GRRR!"

mockturtle said...

Moore's faux outrage will probably help Lizzie Paleface more than Bernie.

Michael said...

No matter what Liz says about M4A and college debt, at her heart she is a corproatist....the last gasp of the Clintonite fritters (along with SloJoe).

Moore is right. This will alienate the left wing of the party. This is the same left wing who stayed at home in 2016. They may have Trump, but not enough to get off the couch to pull the lever for Lizzie.

Sam L. said...

I won't bother to listen to(or read) what Mikey says. Don't trust him, not one little mini-microbit.

Seeing Red said...

Kruiser:...Last night’s nonsense was so bad that the far-left Hollywood publication Variety wrote a debate wrap-up with a headline saying that the questions from the far-left CNN hacks failed both ‘the candidates and the electorate’.”...

Inga last nite: ... Inga said...
Well, I’m glad so far no one has held up their hands to compare who has the biggest hands. Good substantive debate. I suppose it might be boring for those who have become accustomed to the showmanship of Trump. Isn’t it Althouse who says she’s for boring, when it comes to a candidate for president?

Wait Inga doesn’t know the history of The Great Awakening?

Wouldn’t this be #4 in our history?

Well someones studied history at some times and wrote about it somewhere.

Perhaps you were assigned the wrong number of arms at birth without your informed consent?

Mike Sylwester said...

The claim that Sanders said a woman cannot win is just absurd.

The claim puts only Warren in a bad light.

Nobody believes Sanders said it.

dbp said...

Whatever Moore paid for his podcast illustration, it was a bargain. The picture is about 1,000 times more attractive than the actual Michael Moore.

Char Char Binks, Esq. said...

I'm against Warren, Sanders, and Moore. All three have already lost this fight.

Infinite Monkeys said...

That drawing of Moore is based on a photo from, I think, from the 1990s. It's similar in style to the one he used when promoting his TV show and book, "The Awful Truth".

I like photos of me from 20 years ago too. I guess the cameras and photographers were better then. The newer ones don't look as good. It's weird./s

Fernandinande said...

just say why you're "best prepared to be commander-in-chief"

I'd like to see them defy stereotypes and break barriers by doing science demonstrations with dish soap and food coloring ejaculated from flasks. Or anything, really, as long as it's ejaculated.

rhhardin said...

Bernie ALWAYS didn't say that a woman couldn't beat Trump.

Catch-22

rhhardin said...

Warren gets the "chief" part of commander-in-chief from her indian experience.

Char Char Binks, Esq. said...

"The claim that Sanders said a woman cannot win is just absurd."

True, but the claim doesn't put Warren in a bad light. It puts Sanders on the defensive, because his Social Justice Credit Score is being recalibrated.

Bill Peschel said...

Lucid-Ideas, you made me stop and read and consider your description, which was far more interesting than this post.

Also, you didn't mention you're a poet as well (from your intro page):

It is Operation Teapot
And I’m round and stout
I’m rated Top Secret
So get the fuck out
When they clack my Krytron switches
Gamma rays are coming out
6 million degrees Celsius
Now you know what I’m about

Bravo!

Infinite Monkeys said...

why you're "best prepared to be commander-in-chief"

If they're making it sound like a job interview, they should at least follow it up with "tell me what you know about our country".

rhhardin said...

None of the candidates are worth any attention. It's odd that Moore can care about one over the others.

rhhardin said...

If Moore knew anything, he'd favor Bloomberg. Women like him. He's rich and has no sense of humor.

Bob Smith said...

I call Boomers. Except Bernie. He’s just an old white guy.

Jack Klompus said...

Michael Moore's a guy? Everytime I've seen Moore interviewed I thought it was the provost of Smith College.

exiledonmainstreet, green-eyed devil said...

I got the last Jeopardy question - "Who is Iago?" - right. I know my Shakespearean tragedy.

But I got many of the earlier ones wrong.

Quaestor said...

Moore looks forward to Bernie's rockpile. Nothing will keep a fatass pizza slugger on a weight-loss program better than 12 hours of slinging a pick followed by 6 ounces of vichyssoise à la Denisovich, backed up with the occasional AKM motivational session. After about seven years of dietary re-education, they could make an umiak out of his leftover dermis.

Quaestor said...

Bravo!

No, it's Teapot.

This is Bravo.

Instapundit regularly has a heading, "I'm so old that . . . " amd follows that heading with an illustration on how the "liberal" Hive's party line has changed in some significant way--usually a way the Hive would prefer you to ignore. A good recent example is how the Hive, which used to preach coziness with the Russians, suddenly switched to yelling "The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!" Here's a current example:

I'm so old I remember when "liberals" used to take offense if you called them "socialists."

cold pizza said...

I guess Moore couldn't find an avatar of a landwhale that was svelte enough to match his bloated self.

I, on the other had, AM a dinosaur. Although probably not as much of a dinosaur as some of the other posters here. My avatar is a cryolophosaurus (or "Elvisaurus") and the image is a pen-and-ink sketch my then 15-year old daughter drew several years ago when she was bored.

I like long walks on the beach, sunsets, and theoretical physics (I was abandoned by my parents at birth and then raised by engineers in the wild). -CP

"I like long walks on the beach, sunsets, and theoretical physics..."

But do you like pina coladas?

I did too, and I haven't read or seen more than a few lines of Othello. Shocked that James came up with Horatio--did he take a dive?
