Well, if you call several thousand words that can mostly be charactarized as name-calling and irrelevance posing as research sufficient to establish anything, than yes, Lileks' screed could be termed establishing Moore as a liar.
Principle lessons learned about Michaal Moore from this piece:
* He hates America. Well, not really. He just hates Americans. Especially those he disagrees with, whom he's inevitably unfair to.
* He can't remember whether seven or nine people (maybe) from his high school were killed in Vietnam, or whether maybe they're people he met in college or on the job.
* When angry, he makes statements that sometimes contradict the other things he's said on the spur of the moment.
I stopped halfway, so no doubt I missed some even more telling points. I can only stand so much idiocy at one sitting, however.
If you can judge a man by the enemies he makes, then I'd say Moore's doing pretty well.
