Michael Moore is just impudent, fearless, and funny enough to qualify as the Left’s most media-savvy rabble-rouser. In Downsize This! Random Threats From an Unarmed American, the director of 1989’s Roger & Me (which focused on General Motors factory closings in Flint, Mich.) and star of TV Nation tackles, in three dozen flashy chapters, such hot-button issues as illegal aliens (”We’ve got lots of space. Montana! Alaska! Downtown Detroit!”) and the country’s worst ”welfare mothers” (like a CEO who spent $20,000 in ”corporate welfare” on golf balls). Moore can be even more brazen than Rush Limbaugh. But, hey, the Right can’t have all the fun. B+
