Other people will make (or have already made) better posts than this one about Michael Moore's appearance in Madison, but so far they seem to be leaving this out. In fact, it's probably not a good idea to post it, but here I go:

Mr. Moore's next film will be a documentary on HMOs and drug companies. Though it'll likely be disconnected before you get a chance to try it out, do be aware that Pfizer has set up a phone number specifically to be called by their employees if Mike shows up on their premises.


*67 blocks caller ID, and it's free when you call from work.

AH, get the guy who knows what NOT to say to Michael Moore on camera. Smart idea Pfizer has there. You know he'll be asking about "suicidal tendencies" and other side effects of their drugs. I think the exchange might go something like this:

Moore: "Well Andy, may I call you Andy?"
McCormick: "No. Shut up before I get medieval on your sorry, camera man's ass."
Moore: "Thanks Andy. Did you know that your Viagra actually doesn't work many people and that, in fact, it can cause painful erections to working class men and women in America?"
McCormick: "It doesn't cause painful erections in women. They don't have the uh.. the uh proper tools for maintaining or generating an erection. And don't call me Andy."
Moore: "HA! Liar! You knew all along that about it's side effects, and you've kept them out of the public eye!"
McCormick: "No, we haven't. We put warning labels in all our ads and in the product packaging itself. Besides, you're thinking of a different product for a different company. I'm going to have to beat the tr out of your camera guy now. Sorry. Legislation passed by the Republican a month ago allows us to beat the tar out of anyone who videotapes you on public or private property. There's nothing you can do. Betty! Get me my Moore by Four!"

Yes. I'm aware that Pfizer makes viagra. I even double checked their web site to make sure before I posted. But I'm pretty sure they're in competition with the people who make the stuff that can cause erections to last for 4 or more hours. I think it started with an L. L-something. Levitra?

However, Pfizer does make Zyrtec, which is probably the best product they make that I'll be using the soonest. You know, when I get a kitty.

Yes Levitra is the one that has the statement in their ad which says "If you've had an erection for four or more hours, seek medical attention immediately."

Immediately, huh? They used to say "Seek medical attention when you're finished."

I managed to get to see some of the last Packer game, and they had a Levitra commercial that was a woman who actually mentioned the word "erection". This was far superior advertising that the previous commercials that just claimed to improve a guy's "football throwing into a stationary circular object that is attempting to be a sexual symbol and fails" ability. Though, I'm not sure that's an actual ability.
