The Moore Show

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

Updated

Fresh off a frenzy of a screening of his “Sicko” in the nation’s capitol, Michael Moore continues his publicity blitz, one that has completely blurred the lines between entertainment and politics, with a rally at Chicago’s Millennium Park. Legendary writer Studs Terkel and other state politicos are expected to join Moore.

Taking a page from the field of political candidates, Moore on Friday travels to New Hamphire (is he entering the primary?) to host a “town hall” forum with undecided voters in Manchester. He’ll be joined by nurses and doctors and will, of course, screen his film.

The Politico’s Helena Andrews covered the circus of a premiere in D.C., where Moore’s appearance drew both protesters (nurses) and counter protesters (fake nurses), the latter of whom took to calling the documentarian “Comrade Moore.” Moore assured Andrews that yes, his production company does provide good benefits to its employees. He’s still undecided for ’08 but he thinks Hillary Clinton still needs to apologize for her vote on the war.

Name Change: In response to Clint Eastwood’s “Letters from Iwo Jima,” Japan has decided to rename the island to Iwo To.

Bill on “Sopranos”: NBC’s First Read says that Bill Clinton had no part in coming up with the idea for “The Sopranos” video. “I had a lot of fun doing it, but I didn’t have anything to do with thinking it up,” he said, adding, “I just got my lines and played my part, which is kind of what I do in politics these days.”
