The Pulse of America

Standing in stark contrast to the Cannes Film Festival which awarded Michael Moore with the prize for Best Picture, the Academy of Country Music awarded three of its top honors to unabashed patriot Toby Keith. Keith won Male Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. Keith's latest album, Shock 'n Y'all, won Album of the Year. Shock 'n Y'all features such classics as "American Soldier," "Whisky Girl," and "I Love This Bar." If I remember correctly, Shock 'n Yall has already gone triple platinum. I wonder how Michael Moore feels to know that more people can sing the lyrics to "The Taliban Song" than will ever dream of seeing his "documentary" Fahrenheit 911.
