Because it worked so well the first time

Michael Moore, everyone's favorite baseball cap-wearing liberal filmmaker, has decided that his anti-Bush administation movie Fahrenheit 9/11 needs a sequel. The working title is Fahrenheit 9/11 1/2, which sounds like either the latest installment in the Naked Gun series or a really bad porno flick. Moore plans to release the movie in two or three years, just in time to give Republicans another chance to divert attention from themselves in their re-election campaigns and instead pillory Moore anew.

Moore's cinematic effort in Fahrenheit 9/11 -- and regardless of your opinion of the film's thesis, the movie was good on an artistic level -- earned him a Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and more than $100 million at American box offices. Here's a tentative prediction that this sequel, like so many other sequels, won't live up to the original.
