Fifty-six Deceits in Fahrenheit 911, Dave Kopel, Independence Institute

Here's an interesting little piece about Michael Moore's recent bit of agitprop. Seems to attempt a little more thorough point by point refutation than others:

Incidentally, I'm not coming from the orthodox conservative position on this. I have friends and family who have offered up perfectly reasonable disagreements with the Iraq War. This isn't a totally settled issue for me.

But I do reject blatant propaganda of this sort. Especially when otherwise respectable people fall so completely under its sway.

The right had a little problem in this area when it came to a certain President Clinton. But by and large the moonbat extreme was spurned by the conservative mainstream - despite hysterical assertions in the press to the contrary.

The left needs to get a grip here. The desire to defeat President Bush in November is not a great reason to throw in your lot with any wild-eyed loon who shares the same goal.
