What's with all the political crap? Yes... he is political. Don't tell me he's not.
You're right, anonymous. There's no denying that he's a high profile political figure. Just look at the facts. After turning to the Dark Side, Darth Vader became the ruthless henchman of Emperor Palpatine, and he secretly intended to overthrow Palpatine to establish himself as ruler of the Empire. Can't get more political than that. My apologies.
It seems Flint's only relevancy in the world anymore is Michael Moore. Oh well, we'll take it. Funny stuff.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
