Amazon.com:
Stupid White Men, Michael Moore's screed against "Thief-in-Chief" George Bush's power elite, hit No. 1 at Amazon.com within days of publication. Why? It's as fulminating and crammed with infuriating facts as any right-wing bestseller, as irreverent as The Onion, and as noisily entertaining as a wrestling smackdown. Moore offers a more interesting critique of the 2000 election than Ralph Nader's Crashing the Party (he argued with Nader, his old boss, who sacked him), and he's serious when he advocates ousting Bush. But Moore's rage is outrageous, couched in shameless gags and madcap comedy: "Old white men wielding martinis and wearing dickies have occupied our nation's capital.... Launch the SCUD missiles! Bring us the head of Antonin Scalia!... We are no longer [able] to hold free and fair elections. We need U.N. observers, U.N. troops." Moore's ideas range from on-the-money (Arafat should beat Sharon with Gandhi's nonviolent shame tactics) to over-the-top: blacks should put inflatable white dolls in their cars so racist cops will think they're chauffeurs; the ever-more-Republicanesque Democratic Party should be sued for fraud; "no contributions toward advancing our civilization ever came out of the South [except Faulkner, Hellman, and R.J. Reynolds]," because it's too hot to think straight there; Korean dictator Kim Jong-il "has got to broaden himself beyond porn and John Wayne" by watching better movies, like Dude, Where's My Car? (which contains "all you need to know about America"). Whatever your politics, Stupid White Men should make you blow your stack. --Tim Appelo

There were many stupidities in this book which made me jump. I almost could not read further. I am almost allergic to stupidity. I can't stand it at all.
I knew in advance that Bush took power illegally even if the Supreme Court made him president. There is no real justice in the USA. Innocent people are convicted and guilty people are freed like O J Simpson. Everything depends on money.

Some things in the book were too American for a Finn.

This is a very good book even if it made me grind my teeth.
This book counts for USA in my A Book From Every Country Challenge.


This is my #50 (100) in "REDUCE MOUNT TBR 2010" Challenge arranged by DoveiLibri.

Thanks Annelis for your visit to Turku :)

I like Michael Moore's documentaries so it will be interesting to read his book as well

9 out of 10

I read the book almost a year ago and I really liked it. I have seen number of Moore's documentaries and was very similar to those. As I have lived in the US and as I still have friends there I have always been a bit sceptical about certain things. I can believe that at least some of the plots Moore was writing about could be true.

Yep, stupud white men indeed. In some case's Moore simplifies too much (or should I say "oikoo mutkat suoriksi") and it bothers sometimes. But this book proves that we live in a very strange world!
