Michael Moore to release Guide to 2008 election
It just wouldn't be an election year without a baseball-capped, bone-picking Michael Moore weighing in on the process.
In that spirit, Moore would like to tell you, dear voter, exactly what you're doing at the ballot box and how. Mike's Election Guide, the first literary outing from Moore in five years, will come out Aug. 19 via Grand Central Publishing, and promises a walk through the decisions to be made before casting your vote.
The book synopsis promises answers to these "tough questions," amongst others:
"Can I get into the Electoral College if I only have a 2.0 grade point average?
Will Republicans marrying each other be outlawed once Democrats are in power?
Why are the Democrats scared of their own shadow?
Who Would Jesus Vote For?"
Difficult quandaries, indeed. Moore's last book, Dude, Where's My Country, went to #1 on the New York Times best-seller list and stayed there for 24 weeks. His other work includes the documentaries Fahrenheit 9/11 (the sequel to which he's begun filming), SiCKO and Bowling for Columbine, and this summer he'll be throwing his annual Traverse City Film Festival July 29-Aug. 3.
