The Moore the Merrier 

Dems close convention door to Moore
The Democratic Party apparently doesn't want Michael Moore.

The famed filmmaker who delivered a major assault on the Bush administration in his blockbuster film "Fahrenheit 9/11" was declined credentials to the Democratic National Convention in Boston next week, according to Sam Riddle, a longtime political consultant and friend of Moore.
My first thought when I read this was - so what? Moore is a film maker. Not a pundit, not a politician. Not even long-standing democrat really. He was a Green party member who initially supported Nader four years ago. Additionally, the democrats have decided that they want to go with a positive message in this convention so that attention can focus on their vision for America for a change. Moore is a genius, but he is also very strident. And his movie is baggage in that sense. (But that sense only.)

However, then I learned that the rumor isn't even true.
Michael Moore will walk the Democratic convention floor after all.
Frankly, I think it would have been better if he wasn't there. But if Bob Novak can be there, what the heck.
