Just in time for the election comes liberal hero (or enemy depending on your perspective) Michael Moore with a new movie. His latest, called Slacker Uprising, chronicles his efforts in the 2004 election to rally young voters and will available to download for free along with having a theatrical run:
“I thought it’d be a nice way to celebrate my 20th year of doing this,” Moore said. “And also help get out the vote for November. I’ve been thinking about what I want to do to help with the election this year.” [boing boing]
It remains to be seen whether this will help or hurt the election. I suppose it depends on how far off the deep end Moore goes. I’ve always found that his films just too far and alienate the folks that he should be convincing of something. Basically his movies preach to the choir.
I can’t tell much from the trailer (which is after the jump) except that it appears to again focus too much on Moore on not on the issues.
Not so cohesive. But who knows, hopefully it will get young people excited to vote.
And on that note, takepart and get involved with TakePart’s I am Voting For campaign.
