NEW YORK Following all the commotion last night, Michael Moore will not be returning to Madison Square Garden for the Republican National Convention, E&P has learned. According to editors at USA Today, which is publishing his daily column this week, Moore told them that he was choosing not to return again.

However, they said he would continue to write his daily column and they stressed that in no way did they second-guess their decision to have him write the commentary.

Last month, Ann Coulter, who had been hired by USA Today to write a column at the Democratic National Convention, quit after the editors requested many changes in her first submission.

After entering the Garden Monday night with USA Today credentials, Moore was criticized by Sen. John McCain in his speech, setting off prolonged boos and taunts in the arena.

"We had hoped we would be able to put Moore in place where he could actually listen to speeches and not disrupt anything," Ken Paulson, USA Today editor, told E&P today. "The idea was not to put him in the line of sight while giving him the opportunity to observe. Now Moore doesn't plan to return to the convention. I think he saw the down side of his attending. We will have the four days of his column and I hope people will take time to read what he wrote.

Hmm? No, I went there once this past Winter and haven't been back. I felt the stupider for it.

I just had to call shenanigans on Mr. Paulson of USA Today making it sound like they had Moore go there as anything other than an agent provocateur!

One thing wrong with the article.
Ann Coulter didn't quit.

After the magazine saw her first article for the Dem convention, they panicked and called her in.

Basically they said, "You're fired", and she finally had to agree, "I guess I'm not writing anymore articles for you".

The magazine then put out the story that "She quit".

As one blogger wrote, "Micheal Moore deserted his post at MSG! He went AWOL!"

Any ending would be well. Especially one involving a crosstown bus and a three-block skidmark, but I'd settle for having body parts whittled off to diabetes.

He may not be the antichrist, but he sure is the antiatkins.

Probably because the loading dock at MSG is full and there's no other way in.
