Michael Moore - A Vendetta Against the Bush Administration?

Michael Moore started with Roger & Me and went on to Bowling with Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11. Bush hater or truth teller, hero or antichrist, his most recent entry at the Cannes Film Festival Moore’s documentary “Sicko” — a ferocious attack on the U.S. health care industry — is the talk of the film festival and Michael Moore is hot property.

“It’s a government that’s funded by the pharmaceutical companies and the health insurers, so I’m not surprised they’re coming after me,” said Michael Moore, who is being investigated by the U.S. Treasury Department for traveling to Cuba for one of the segments in his film. Ironically, the Cuban segment occupies relatively little screen time though it has made waves with the Bush government. This could be because, as per the film, the health-care industry that Moore skewers in “Sicko” was a major contributor to Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign.

As usual the Bush administration said that they had ‘no comment’ citing a policy against discussing specific investigations being conducted by Treasury Office.

Many people are of the view that the film has been exaggerated to unrealistic heights. Yet others have praised Moore for having the balls to deliver the untarnished truth. Whatever the opinion, the investigation lends credence to Michael Moore’s film and will ensure tons of free publicity for ‘Sicko’. Kudos to Michael for payback to the Government. According to Moore: “I’ve made a very funny film, about a very sick subject.”

Here’s hoping Mr. Moore doesn’t plan on getting sick in the near future or else Uncle Sam will have the last laugh!
