It's just a troll who is trying to legitimize what it is saying by posting a bunch of supporting responses to his Moore bashing.

I'm not a supporter of Moore, but I don't like Shrub either. All I know is Shrub via the Patriot Act has effectively ended the 1st Ammendment, by and far the most important Right we have. In the act they have passed a law that makes speech about a dangerous and very un-American law illegal. Normally, free speech is seperated into what you can say and what is dangerous to say, such as yelling fire in a crowded theater or joking about a bomb being on a plane. The act protects this unpopular law by making it illegal to talk about it. Unpopular laws should not be protected as dangerous speech and this sets a precident that is by and far a clear and present danger to all Americans and anyone who believes in freedom.

BTW: the law I'm talking about allows the FBI to compell business access to your personal information without judicial permission or review. Nice, huh?! What in itself is a travisty, turns out to be merely the salt in the wound. I hate Shrub.
