Bad news:

Michael Moore’s boilerplate divorce complaint is the most boring thing he’s ever put his name on.

It even seems to be factually accurate!

Word that Moore and his wife of 21 years were splitting up generated plenty of news stories last week.

The “documentary” fib-maker doesn’t make as many headlines as he once did, of course.

Remember when Moore’s back-to-back hits Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11 made him famous enough to get mocked in other people’s movies?

Remember his sold-out international speaking tour?

His ubiquitous bestselling books?

And the cottage industry that sprang up on the “right” dedicated to debunking Moore’s toxic “facts”?

Today, Michael Moore’s Q Score is probably somewhere between Pokemon and Pogs.

"Liberals have a shockingly high pain threshold when it comes to their heroes’ sins and failings."

Sigh. You are once again making the same mistake: Thinking our rules apply to them. There are only two things that would cause the Left to throw Moore overboard (and I'm not even sure about these):

- Discovery that he actively contributes to pro-life causes.
- Discover that he is anti-gay.

I doubt that even starving Ethiopians would go for that.

We can certainly hope this tub of hate is reduced to a pile of quivering blubber.

Sadly, I think the only way to sink Michael Moore is with a harpoon.

Moore is an idiot, but Canadian Bacon is a funny movie.

Who would marry such a repulsive, self-centered pig? But anyway, yeah, I hope so. Then I hope he chokes on a chicken wing in the privacy of his man cave.

I wonder if any of the gossip TV shows will bother sending camera crews to the courthouse in Bellaire, Michigan, where this case will be heard. If so, the town has an airport which can accommodate small business jets; o they can fly commercial into Traverse City.

No. He was marinated and thrives within the hypocrisy from the hard Left.

Why do I have the feeling that we're about to start seeing ads which read "I lost 380 lbs in 10 minutes"?

"The Left will never admit it, but all that often-thankless debunking and mockery really did chip away at Michael Moore’s reputation."

Yeah, he's really a 'pre-internet' phenom, in that his technique is both easy to copy and easy to debunk. To get an idea of the phoniness in 'Roger and Me' in the 90's you would probably have to go physically through the back issues of conservative magazines.
