Dude, Where's My Country?

Anyone else getting this one (and please, let's not turn this into a Michael Moore bashing thread!)? I prebooked this a couple of days ago...comes out Oct. 2nd. Looking forward to it!

I'm definitely getting it. Was thinking about it and the title and cover alone made it a must for me.

No, I won't be getting this. I disagree with just about everything I've ever heard come out of his mouth.

But I must admit, he chose a funny title for it.

Definitely will be getting it. Maybe not as soon as it comes out, but I know I'll want to read it.

Got it. Read it. Loved it.

My only complaint is that it's a bit short in length...only about 250 pages.

Odd, I enjoy Moore's work, but I find the title of this book painfully unfunny.

I don't always agree with him, but he is funny. I'll read it at some point.

Wow! I'ld like to get look at your Daytimer! It must be jam packed for the next six weeks.

Moore is a little heavy handed for my taste, but I will probably pick this up as well.

Same here, except I will not even give him credit for a funny title. Pretty corny title IMO. And I find nothing funny about the guy (except how he dresses like a bum & always wears a hat).

I searched all over my local bookstore's fiction section and couldn't find it. Is it out yet?

Or should I searched the Fantasy section?

Would it be in the communist section? Socialism section?

nodeerforamonth I suggest that you ask one of the people working at the local bookstore you mention as I am sure they will be happy to help. Then come back and tell us what you thought of the book as that is what this thread is mainly for.
