The government has been seized by a ne'er-do-well rich boy and his elderly henchmen...Our great economic expansion is unraveling faster than a set of Firestones...Our water is poisoned, the ozone's in shreds, and the SUVs are advancing like a plague of locusts...

Remember when everything was looking up? When the government was running at a surplus, pollution was disappearing, peace was breaking out in the Middle East and Northern Ireland, and the Bridge to the Twenty-First Century was strung with high-speed Internet cable and paved with 401K gold?

Well, so much for the future. Michael Moore, the award-winning provocateur behind Roger & Me and the best seller Downsize This!, now returns to size up the new century - and that big, ugly special-interest group that's laying waste to the world as we know it: stupid white men.

Whether he's calling for United Nations action to overthrow the Bush Family Junta, begging African-Americans to place whites only signs over the entrances of unfriendly businesses, or praying that Jesse Helms will get kissed by a man, Stupid White Men is Mike's Manifesto on Malfeasance and Mediocrity. Among his targets:

  • George W.: 'President' of the United States. The Thief-in-Chief. A trespasser on federal land, a squatter in the Oval Office.
  • Bill Clinton: One of the best Republican presidents we've ever had.
  • The former Yugoslavia: Bring back Marshall Tito! Nobody in America liked him much when he was alive, but now he looks like Lady Bird Johnson.
  • The idiot nation: A friggin' stain on a blue dress. That's what captured our attention in the '90s - along with slow-moving Broncos, six-year-old strangled beauty queens, and Hugh Grant's dating habits.
  • Corporate America: There is no recession, my friends: no downturn, no hard times. The rich are wallowing in loot - and now they want to make sure you don't come a-lookin' for your piece of the pie.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla | 2/2/2014

    " Funny and disturbing and questionable research, classic Michael Moore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 1/29/2014

    " I have been very wary of Michael Moore since his meddling with the facts in Fahrenheit 9/11. Still, even if only half of what he writes in this book is true then my view of Bush Jnr has dropped to a new low. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 1/28/2014

    " Cheesing off the right. Always a good thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 1/28/2014

    " it's kind of fluff, when it comes to books on politics but it's entertaining and informative if you don't already read about these kinds of things... it serves it's purpose, bringing issues to the masses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Weenie | 1/26/2014

    " Not as sensational as I thought it would be. Funny and interesting in parts. Clutching at straws in other parts. Did wonder at the time of reading which bits were true though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lois | 1/20/2014

    " Okay, this guy has caused a storm with his "anti-bush" campaigns, but delve a little deeper and he is just another redneck trying to capitalise on the media frenzy surrounding the Iraq war. I am not impressed with his research and i find his tactics very childish. I can give him credit for educating a dumbed down middle America, but like Al Gore he is a marketing machine with little substance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/16/2014

    " An interesting read, but how much of it has anything to do with reality? Moore makes a lot of assertions and doesn't back them up.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 columbialion | 12/3/2013

    " Factual accounting of the stolen election of 2001 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traci Brumm | 11/10/2013

    " Fun and easy to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 10/18/2013

    " If nothing else, they're all comedic if the political points don't enrage you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin and Jim | 10/11/2013

    " I really enjoyed Michael Moore's writing style, and the subject matter of the first chapter, the 2000 Presidential election, is cleverly examined and explained. -EL "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simon | 10/2/2013

    " This started wel, making me think how much Call me Dave's government resembles that of Dubbya's, but I did find Moore's polemics start to become waring after a while "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie | 9/18/2013

    " I despise this man. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 12/28/2012

    " More than I wish I knew. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 6/30/2012

    " Love me some Michael Moore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 9/28/2010

    " Moore is a champion of the middle class and the scourge of corporate greed. And he's always entertaining "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent | 1/16/2007

    " Really enjoyed this when I read it, but I'm not sure it would still be as interesting today. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 11/19/2006

    " Oh god - America scares me. No doubt Moore is politically motivated, but the underlying truth of the stupidity and arrogance of the people that run the most powerful country in the word is a shock. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aletha Dunston | 9/22/2006

    " Talks about our current IN Governor, Mitch Daniels, among others. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yik | 10/31/2004

    " I understood all the messages Moore was trying to say (and agree with most), but felt that they were conveyed for people who were rather naive and/or had short concentration spans. Maybe that's the readership at which he is aiming this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madalyn | 9/25/2004

    " This eye-opening book made me laugh out loud while showing just how pathetic our American political and business culture can be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Taylor W. Rushing | 8/15/2003

    " Smart and full of well-orchestrated opinion. I worry that his facts are not straight. I think if they were, their would have been a greater response to this novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn Jourdan | 6/3/2003

    " I laughed until I cried at some points of this book. If you don't "get" satire don't read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannie | 1/25/2003

    " seriously I'm not really sure how to take this guy..this was pretty much a bunch of ranting and raving against almost everything in this country. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 9/17/2002

    " Those rascally conservatives are at it again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasa Tovornik | 9/4/2002

    " One of my first insights in some parts of American society I never thought about. It gives a different angle and thus I found it interesting. "
