I Think I Just Wet Myself (UPDATED)

THIS is funny on so many levels, I don't even know where to begin.

Michael Moore's Bodyguard Arrested on Airport Gun Charge

NEW YORK — Filmmaker Michael Moore's bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York's JFK airport Wednesday night.

Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.

Moore's 2003 Oscar-winning film "Bowling for Columbine" criticizes what Moore calls America's "culture of fear" and its obsession with guns.

It's like ra-a-a-ain, on your wedding day!

UPDATE: Remember being told if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is?

Well, it seems Fox News wasn't entirely accurate in their reporting of this incident. See this post at Moorewatch for the details.

What we seem to have here is a major media outlet in this country misrepresenting the facts in a gun-related news story. Golly, that NEVER happens. One such case in point, this recent entry in the Boston Herald's police log:

A loaded handgun and four hollow-point ("cop-killer'') bullets were seized Thursday from William Hart, 18, and Shamia Perry, 21, after police found their purple Toyota Camry double-parked on Devon Street.

Note: This correction in no way changes the fact that Michael Moore is a hypocritical, leftist dillhole. Have a nice day.
