Look at the map on his front page. From the looks of it, he's not going to confine his work just to politicians, but he's going to go right after
the American people who voted for Bush. Which, of course, is going to drive them even further against liberals.
During the previous few years, Moore basically confined himself to exposing politicians, and attacked a few well-known citizens. This would really
have the effect of pushing those who agreed with him farther away from politicians, while those who did not agree with him further towards them, with
really a net of zero change in the actual voting results. This time around, if he opens on on heartland America, he's going to be upsetting the
people themselves. It's one thing to attack someone's politician, it's another to attack them personally.
I think that if Moore doesn't want to shoot himself in the foot, he's going to have to pull himself back. Or, instead of being a semi-respectable
film maker with strong views, he's going to get the label 'whackjob' by the majority of people once he goes on the offensive.
I don't know, just my thoughts on the issue.
