Disagree. That’s not absurd. I detest just about everything Michael Moore says and does, but there is nothing absurd about Moore trashing capitalism while using it to become rich and famous.

The real absurdity here is that while Moore trashes Capitalism, it is Capitalism that has enabled him to make and sell books and movies, and to become a multi-millionaire. [Austin Hill: Michael Moore Economics is Driving Washington, at]

It’s no more absurd than Clarence Thomas using affirmative action to take him to a place where he can launch effective criticism of affirmative action. It’s no more absurd than taking Medicare assistance to help you afford going to town hall meetings to protest government involvement in health care — an activity that I strongly support. You have to work with the system you have.
