Michael Moore is a drama queen. And fat.

Michael Moore claims he had to hire a private army to protect him after his controversial Oscar speech in 2003 in which he stopped chewing long enough to criticize President Bush. Because Hollywood is such a hotbed of Republican extremism, you see. From the New York Post:
Michael Moore was so reviled after his 2003 Oscar speech -- in which he yelled, “Shame on you, Mr. Bush!” from the stage -- that he hired nine ex-Navy SEALs to protect him. “[I] met with the head of the top security agency in the country, an elite, no-[bleeping]-around outfit that did not hire ex-cops, nor any ‘tough guys’ or bouncer types,” Moore writes in his new memoir, “Here Comes Trouble.” “They preferred to only use SEALs and ... due to the alarming increase of threats and attempts on me, I had nine of them surrounding me, round-the-clock."
It sounds like Michael was being a little dramatic. He didn't need to surround himself with Navy Seals to protect his life, he needed to surround himself with nutritionists. When considering his future, Michael Moore should worry less about some nutty gunman and worry more about nutty chocolate bars. Mmmmm, trans fat.
