Since there hasn't been a review of Downsize This here at MOOREWATCH, I'm happy to point you to a good one over at epinions.com.

So if you're a narrow-minded individual looking for propaganda with a lack of credit, I would recommend reading "Downsize This!"


And mind you, this is what someone who's giving the impression that he's left of center has to say about the book.

A libertarian buddy wasted his time on this thing and felt it to be distinctly unfunny and rather mean spirited at times.

As a libertarian, I won't read it because I already know I'll find it unfunny and it will greatly anger me. My question is, why'd he have to read it first? C'mon, it's Michael fucking Moore.

He's kinda confused - his overall beleifs are solidly libertarian, yet he's got this odd penchant for supporting leftists and attacking conservatives - basically, his "bullshit detector" is never set off by anything the left says or does and yet he's always willing to beleive left wing propaganda sites about the right?

As a fellow libertarian, maybe you can explain this affliction?

I've never understood why Moore feels compelled to plaster his pudgy likeness on the cover of every book that he writes.
Is he really so vain and egotistical that he thinks that it will increase sales?
I can't think of any other author who does this. (If you can even categorize what Moore does as "writing" as opposed to typing.)

He's a raging ego maniac.

Sigh - Rush has done so with all his books and just about every issue of the Limbaugh letter - but atleast Rush freely admits he's a raging ego maniac. ;)
