Saw a clip

of that Moore movie. In it, he asks a member of Congress if his child will be joining the military, with the implication that no member of Congress has relatives in the war zones. Guess he didn't ask Rep. Hunter. And I guess Rep. Buyer didn't get asked, but then again, it isn't a relative that Rep. Buyer was willing to send off. It was himself, but the Army decided not to activate him...which was a damned good call, in my opinion.

High-profile servicemembers, such as Rep Buyer, or the Bush twins, are a danger to their unit in this age of media.

See, I'm not usually impressed with the "Sunday Night Movie" when it is Based on a True Story, so why should I be impressed with Moore's Based on a Documentary movie?
