Michael Moore In Denver To Tout New Propaganda 'Sicko'

**Update--Drunkablog endured Michael Moore's flatulence hot air, socialized medicine advocates, and some intense heat to bring us exclusive pictures from his Sicko propaganda promotion.

Sicko--and here we refer to the director, not the movie--will be accompanied by members of Colorado's nursing association (bring your costumes!):
Controversial Oscar-winning filmmaker Michael Moore will visit Denver on Sunday in support of his latest film, Sicko, an examination of the country's health-insurance industry, which opens here Friday.

As he did earlier this week in Chicago, Moore will preside at a rally attended by nurses - in this case, members of the Colorado Nurse's Association.

The association is one of seven organizations co-sponsoring Moore's appearance.

The location of Sunday's rally was changed Friday. Moore will now appear at 6 p.m. on the west steps of the state Capitol.
. . .
After the rally, Moore and the nurses will head to the Denver Pavilions on the 16th Street Mall, where he will hold a news conference and attend a private film screening at 7:15 p.m.

Huttner said that a limited number of tickets to that screening will be given to those attending the state Capitol rally "with the best signs or costumes."
What costume do you think best represents socialized medicine?

Maybe we could all show up in Castro-esque track suits.

PETA to Michael Moore:
“Although we think that your film could actually help reform America’s sorely inadequate health care system, there’s an elephant in the room, and it is you. With all due respect, no one can help but notice that a weighty health issue is affecting you personally. We’d like to help you fix that. Going vegetarian is an easy and life-saving step that people of all economic backgrounds can take in order to become less reliant on the government’s shoddy healthcare system, and it’s something that you and all Americans can benefit from personally.”
**Update 2--
Michael Moore at the meat-and-eat meet-and-greet:

"A system set-up to be cruel to the have-nots"--we need socialized healthcare like Canada and England!

My brother-in-law can't wait to flee the inefficiencies of the UK healthcare system. He should know, having been born and Englishman.
