Oregon Daily Emerald - University of Oregon news and sports - Moore Bush-bashing

Oregon Daily Emerald - University of Oregon news and sports - Moore Bush-bashing: "Controversial filmmaker and author Michael Moore blasted President Bush as a member of a 'ruthless' minority and implored people to vote for presidential candidate John Kerry during a show at the Lane Events Center Monday.
Moore delivered a lashing monologue before a sold-out crowd of about 4,000 during the event, which was organized by the UO Cultural Forum.
Moore, whose blockbuster documentary 'Fahrenheit 9/11' was recently released on video, said the Eugene show was the 31st on a 60-city 'Slacker Uprising Tour' of 20 battleground states.
Wearing a yellow University baseball hat, Moore said the tour is designed to encourage nonvoters and slackers. Moore offered prior nonvoters clean underwear and ramen noodle packages -- the 'sustenance of slackers everywhere' -- in exchange for their participation in the election.
'We just want you to try voting, just this once,' he said. 'I can't think of a more important election in our lifetime.'
Moore said he and his wife are organizing a team of lawyers to travel to Florida for the Nov. 2 election to help any people there who encounter voter fraud.
He also said he wants to organize an 'army of video cameras' to document any voter fraud that occurs nationally at the polls.
'It won't be in the darkness this time,' Moore said. 'It will be with a big fucking light on them.' "
