The Academy of Motion Picture yadda, yadda… must have known what they were in for when they decided to give Michael Moore an Oscar and a minute or so in front of the microphone. I admire Moore for trying to make the most of it, especially backed-up by the rest of the Documentary Feature nominees, but his heavy-handed tactics relegate him to the status of liberal fanatic (although now a liberal fanatic with an Oscar). I would like to think the boo's he received were more for his brute-force approach, than for the content of the speech, but I think that's mostly wishful thinking. Most disheartening was that a few minutes later, a quick jab by Steve Martin could get the audience and the viewers at home to dismiss Moore as even more of a loose nut. I tend to agree with most of what the loose-nut, liberal fanatic has to say, but sometimes I just wish he'd say it without the groan-inducing sermons.
