Sam The Sham Farr Calls Michael Moore His Hero

Walking up Independence Avenue, it is pointed out to Farr that the querulous filmmaker Michael Moore is standing on the next corner with a camera crew and a microphone.

Farr barrels across First Street and right into Moore’s sour mug. “How’s my hero?!” Farr asks.

Moore, with his typical hunched-down head and glum expression, tells Farr, “We’re not looking for guys like you, if you get my drift.”

Ignoring the invitation to scram, Farr lays it on thick for the camera. He runs the show for a few minutes and introduces himself to a Marine that Moore has with him.

Farr walks away from Moore unscathed. In fact, he is beaming. He says he’d just as soon have gone into filmmaking as a young man if he’d known about it.

Sam Farr is a career politician son of a career politician. He has not had to work a day in his life. He’d have never made it as a filmmaker.
