Of course, they dismissed the case because that little creep Newdow didn't have standing, because he doesn't have custody of her (he also lied that she was offended by the Pledge, so it's too bad he can't be tried for perjury, but I'll live). So the issue will come up again as the ACLU can find another pissant to do their bidding. Still, the news warmed my heart. I can't wait to see Newdow whining on the networks about evil, anti-athetist "Amerikkka".
In other news, the MPAA is out to get Michael Moore is part of the evil, Bush administration-led conspiracy to keep people from seeing his documentary (or, as some like to call it, crockumentary), Fahrenheit 9/11. The MPAA gave it an R rating, citing its "violent and disturbing images" and "language". Mikey says this is a bad bad thing because "It is sadly very possible that many 15- and 16-years-olds will be asked and recruited to serve in Iraq in the next couple of years. If they are old enough to be recruited and capable of being in combat and risking their lives, they certainly deserve the right to see what is going on in Iraq.''
Well gee, moron, it's possible that ten year olds could be sent to Iraq some day, or five year olds, or newborns. Lets just give it a G rating to cover all the bases!
The truth of this, of course, is that it's about money. Mikey doesn't want to wait six months to a year for the DVD to come out, because that doesn't count towards the box office totals. And like Lee points out, "See, it's the box office totals that will enable him and his filthy corporate distributors to claim that this is the highest-grossing documentary of all time. Never forget, folks. When it's got to do with Michael Moore, it's always about the money. Always."
