USA Today has hired Michael Moore to write four op-ed articles during the Republican National Convention in New York next week. Some delegates, naturally, were peeved at the idea of the filmmaker lurking around Madison Square Garden with media credentials.
Lloyd Grove of the New York Daily News shares the following tidbit:
Alabama delegate Terry Butts: "I'm from South Alabama, and we're used to dealing with jackasses, and so I look forward to making his acquaintance. In Alabama, there are probably a few good ol' boys who would know how to put a good knot on his head."
It figures. When someone doesn't agree with them, violence becomes the answer. That just feels enlightened, doesn't it?
