When Michael Moore's new film premiered in Venice this weekend, the activist took the opportunity to express some vindication.

From the Guardian:

Moore admitted that he felt vindicated that George Bush had finally gone. "The American people are now thinking more like me," he said.

However, he insisted that there remained more work to do before his vision of America can be realised. "The people can revolt in good ways, in non-violent ways, for what they believe is right," he said. "That revolt has already begun. But one man – Barack Obama – cannot make that happen. Obama will rise or fall based on what we all do to support him because democracy is a participatory sport."

Moore's film--"Capitalism: A Love Story"--takes a critical look at what caused the financial collapse.
