Will Congress Rise to Michael Moore's Racebait

In a change of pace from his political devisivness, Michael Moore is now turning to race-baiting and putting the 109th session of Congress in his crosshairs.

In his latest email blast, he sends an open plea to the senate, asking any member to agree to let Rep. John Conyers have the floor so he can object to the vote count in Ohio. Then he goes on to say that
"A very embarrassing moment during the last session of Congress occurred in the first week when none of you would allow the members of Congress who were black to have the floor to object to the Florida vote count. Remember that? You thought no one would ever notice, didn't you? You certainly lucked out that night when the networks decided not to show how you shut down every single member of the Congressional Black Caucus."
I'm sorry, did they let any whites have the floor to object to the count? Here goes Michael Moore again in his strategy to divide and conquer. From what I recall, they didn't let ANYONE have the floor to object and to imply they were prevented from speaking specifically because they were black is reprehensible.

Perhaps he's repeated these kinds of statements so often that he begins to believe they're facts, and not opinions or theories. For example, he still thinks Al Gore won in 2000 and Kerry "should have" won this year. Quoting Moore again in today's email, "It's rough to lose two elections in a row when the first one you actually won and the second one you should have won." Well, what does "actually" mean? Did the Supreme Court say that Gore won, but Bush decided to ignore them? Did Gore show up with the moving van in January 2001 and Bush had already moved in? I can't for the life of me understand that one. But then I'm equally confused by "should have won." Perhaps that should be followed with "... if I didn't shoot off my mouth and drive every moderate and Independent vote to the GOP."

BTW, since I think Barak Obama (D-IL) is a better spokesman for black Democrats in Congress than Michael Moore, perhaps his readers should consider the Senator's comments on the topic from today's Washington Times ...
"The election is over and President Bush won fair and square, so I don't think we need to challenge the election, but we continue to have chronic problems in our voting system," he said. "Some of the practices in Ohio were clearly illegal and disenfranchised voters and, let's be real about this, some Republicans were denied their rights to vote as well."

Well, it looks like (surprise, surprise) Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is stepping up to the plate. Her letter responding to Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-OH) objection is posted here at FoxNews

BTW, according to the Fox News story, Boxer said she regrets that she didn't object to the certification four years ago when the controversial election put Bush over Al Gore. So is THAT a motivation for doing it this time? I mean even Teddy Kennedy did stand up to support the objection in 2001. (Which was a much smaller margin, of course.) If you been hearing the whining about Bush being "reselected" again, you get the impression this is just 4 years of pent up frustration.
