Michael Moore Boycotts Conneticut

Certainly there is some humor in the idea of a Michael Moore-led boycott of an entire state as being anything the state would notice, but it gets even funnier when you realize how ignorant the outrage industry on the left really can be. For example, take at look at this excerpt from document (embedded below the fold) titled “Recall of Legislators and the Removal of Members of Congress from Office,” which I originally found, delightfully, at Lieberman.Senate.Gov:
Okay, what happened is this. All forty Republican Senators have vowed to filibuster the Health Care Bill. Majority Leader Ried therefore needs 60 votes to break the filibuster.
He has 58 Dems and 2 Independents that *generally* vote with and caucus with the Dems. One of those is Sen. Lieberman, who has decided that he doesn’t like the Healthcare bill and will not be the 60th vote. (Passing thought, where is Arlen Specter in all this? Ben Nelson and Lieberman are making noise, Specter is dead silent….) Michael Moore (big documentary-making liberal) is mad at Lieberman for roadblocking the Dems and tweeted that conneticut should recall their guy (which is constitutionally impossible) or get boycotted (which is laughable, but good luck anyway).
