    Tough call, I would say ENTP or ENTJ.

    I respect Michael Moore as a documentarian (really, a propagandist, but he works in that end of filmmaking) who can open a movie. I don't appreciate some of his tactics, though. Even back in the Roger & Me days, he kept up the whole "Roger Smith wouldn't speak to me" thing and had the empty seat in every theater gimmick, even though he did eventually speak to Roger Smith and did not include it in the film.

    I had a great idea from one of the Hit & Run posters at Reason.

I mean..he's sees it too black and white, there's really no median.

    He's definitely a support-the-cause kind of guy...and I usually don't care for those kind of people.
    Yeah. He does expose some really fucked up shit that goes on every day, though. I like that. I think that's important.

    I sometimes wonder if he'd make more of an impact, and thereby generate more real success for the people he says he wants to help, if he wasn't quite so extreme.

    Michael Moore is the king of confirmation bias. What a dick.

    There are others out there on the fringe left that are much more respectable than our dear Moore. Most of the politically savvy including those who swing left recognize him for what he is, a loon.

    We don't even have to look far back at all, his new movie rages against capitalism, ok sure that is ideological, sad part is, he is going to end up with more figures ($$$) under him due to this movie, from working in a capitalist system. His history is extremely telling.

    Overall I have a low opinion of Moore, as he is merely shock value or sells through shock value, nothing intellectual about his presentations.

    Of course it is, everyone likes to see Pablo, the overweight lion in the cage try and jump through flaming hoops only to see the lion run around with his fur on fire. It's no longer about Michael Moore's politics(though it never really was, was it?), it's about his actions. He runs around screaming like a turkey and expects everyone to take him seriously.

    I agree. I'm pretty much what you'd call a lefty-liberal I guess, but he can really get up my ass sometimes. When he accosts people for on-the-spot interviews and does his "I just don't understand the defensiveness!!" act, I'm like "Oh will ya can it Moore??". He sets them up to look stupid, which is a tactic that will annoy me just as much coming from a lefty as it will from a righty.

    Totally do the free ticket thing!
