Michael Moore Film Hammers DoddSubmitted by laissez faire on Tue, 09/15/2009 - 15:07
Michael Moore is contemptible. But I know a lot of Connecticut residents like him and his new "documentary" villifies Chris Dodd, the final hurdle Peter Schiff would have to cross into the Senate.
According to the Washington Post...
In building his indictment against the ill-fated marriage of Wall Street and Washington, Moore zeroes in less on Phil Gramm or other GOP string-pullers than he does on White House economic adviser Larry Summers, Robert Rubin and Sen. Chris Dodd. Especially Dodd, the Connecticut Democrat and chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. Moore gets an on-camera interview with the mortgage officer who handled the special VIP loans provided to Dodd and other big names, which have dogged Dodd's reelection bid.
Dodd had appeared to be clawing his way back onto safer political ground in recent months, as he filled in for the dying Ted Kennedy as chair of the Senate health committee. But if "Capitalism" packs them in in Wallingford and Danbury, watch out.
