Needed - conservative Michael Moore

Well, maybe that title needs work. We don't need another Michael Moore of any stripe unless energy shortages dictate a return to whale oil.

I haven't actually seen it, but from what I've heard "Bowling for Columbine" doesn't rise to the standards set by the old Clinton conspiracy tapes. Why don't the more intellectually defensible parts of our political spectrum fight back? Is it that they don't have anyone so mean and dishonest as Moore?

There's plenty of material nowadays, what with all of the antiwar idiocy. Unions, especially teacher's unions, are ripe for abuse. And how about dimwit lefty celebrities like those mentioned here and here? Or a travelogue that shows that Eden otherwise known as ANWR, spiced with some of the hysterical ecobabble in defense of it?

Libertarians might want to see PJ O'Rourke make a movie out of "All the Trouble in the World", or "Parliament of Whores". Or imagine what Penn Jillette or Dave Barry could come up with.

I'd like to see what you could get from a team of conservatives like Rob Long, Larry Miller, Jonah Goldberg and the staff from the old Rush Limbaugh TV show.

Come on guys, what are you waiting for?
