Can we dispense with the Michael Moore fat jokes? There’s enough room for criticism besides making donut jokes. Fat jokes are the ultimate ‘easy reach’ of humour. And yes, I’ve read some of Christopher Hitchens’ screed on Moore – though I’m waiting to ingest criticism until I’ve actually seen the film – which most online criticism doesn’t seem to be waiting for. It’s like ripping on Ann Coulter because she’s a fembot – there’s enough holes in her writing and ideology that personal appearance remarks are superfluous.
