This text tells you everything you need to know about how the great and the good screw us over. It reveals - among other things - how "President" Bush stole an election aided only by his brother, cousin, his dad's cronies, electoral fraud and tame judges; how the rich stay rich while forcing the rest of us to live in economic fear; and how politicians have whored themselves to big business. Not to mention providing detail on just how stupid Bush is, a convincing case for male obsolescence and a fabulous new use for Whites Only signs!

I was curious about Moore's books and a ring offered a good opportunity to satisfy my curiosity. I started with Stupid White Men. Having finished that one I'd reached a certain level of Moore saturation. Still, not easily put off, I bravely started reading the other half of the double BookCrossing bill: Dude's, Where's My Country?. Turns out, the saturation was near complete and I gave up halfway through. Enough Moore for me for now.

Michael Moore is a sarcast. He is also witty, well-spoken and well-informed, but first and foremost he's sarcastic and at some point this wears you out. Well, it does me. You don't convince people with sarcasm, all you achieve is forming a stronger connection with those who agree with you anyway. Maybe I'm too serious. Maybe the subject matter is too serious. The information Moore finds, speaks for itself, no need to add this sauce of cynicism. It eventually dulls the taste buds.

Onwards the books travel! Let's see who's next on the list.

Note to Elhamisabel: I moved Martinburo up a bit in the list, as he currently lives in the UK.

I'm not really into this book right now so I'm passing it to the next person on the list: Syrin, since Bookmanu doesn't want to read it anymore.
