Here's What We're Fighting For ...

Michel Moore is a pain in the tuchis [sp?], but so are any number of people equidistant to the right of the political spectrum. The genius of our society is that they all get rich off putting their views out there. Unless, of course, your distribution deal is through Disney:

    Mr. Moore's agent, Ari Emanuel, said Michael D. Eisner, Disney's chief executive, asked him last spring to pull out of the deal with Miramax. Mr. Emanuel said Mr. Eisner expressed particular concern that it would endanger tax breaks Disney receives for its theme park, hotels and other ventures in Florida, where Mr. Bush's brother, Jeb, is governor.

And how is this different, other than degree, from decisions made in Iraq based on how relatives of Saddam would react to criticism of his regime?
