NEW YORK (CNN) -- A verbal jab at filmmaker Michael Moore -- as Moore watched from the press gallery -- by Sen. John McCain during his speech to Republican delegates Monday night triggered one of the evening's most boisterous responses. So rousing, in fact, that it prompted McCain to repeat the remark for effect.

McCain did not mention Moore -- whose anti-Bush documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" has angered many Bush supporters -- by name, but his reference was clear.

Referring to President Bush's decision to send troops in Iraq to unseat Saddam Hussein, McCain said the United States had faced a dire choice.

"Our choice wasn't between a benign status quo and the bloodshed of war. It was between war and a graver threat," the Arizona Republican said.

I saw the speech when he said it. I saw Guliani's speech too.

The best part was when they said Michael Moore made Saddam
Husseins Iraq look terrific, when in fact Iraq was being robbed
blind by Saddam (and Koffi Annan's son), and there were hundreds
of thousands of murders, rapes, and maiming by Saddams regime.

Michael Moore showed children playing with kites and all was
peachy-keen. When in fact it was horrid. He should be ashamed
of himself, but he isn't bright enough to realize it.
