Moore has friends in low places. It doesn't even seem to bother him that Osama Bin Laden thinks he is worthy of quoting:
COOPER: I want to talk about this video army in just a second. But first, I've got to ask you about this Osama bin Laden tape.
Now in this -- in his last video, you know, that came out on Friday, Osama bin Laden talks about George Bush listening to a child's story about a goat rather than worrying about the towers. When you heard that, I mean, does it seem like to you that Osama bin Laden has seen "Fahrenheit 9/11"
MOORE: Yes, it did. And I was thinking what theaters are we in in Afghanistan? It sounds like he had a bootleg of the film. There's a big FBI warning at the beginning of it, you know. So hopefully...
(yeah that's it, we should crack down on OBL for stealing a copy of his tape.)
COOPER: Is that a strange following? But is it a strange feeling to feel like Osama bin Laden's watching your movie?
MOORE: Yes, well, do you think that he's watching CNN, which I'm sure he's doing, right?
COOPER: Yes, I think it's weird.
MOORE: Yes, I mean, he actually, you know, could be watching you and I right now.
COOPER: I've got a question for you. Rudy...
MOORE: I mean...
COOPER: This weekend, Rudy Giuliani said that Osama bin Laden seemed influenced by your movie in some way. I want to show you what he said.
He said, "Osama bin Laden went on and repeated Michael Moore's diatribe against President Bush almost word for word, as if he had watched that movie and been influenced by it in some way."
MOORE: Yes, it's really sad to see how -- to what disgusting depths Rudy Giuliani has sunk to. You know, I would never -- I'd never compare him to a mass murderer.
But, I mean, this just shows how desperate these Republicans are. They bring up my name constantly in the hopes that I don't know what. They're so -- they're so berserk over my film. They've -- they funded almost, I think, like a half a dozen, you know, anti-Michael Moore films now. They've only funded one anti-John Kerry film. And it's like, hey, guys, I'm glad I was able to take up all your time and your resources.
(Republicans tend to get 'berserk' over a pack of lies... just my .02...Cindi)
