George Bush the elder is doing his part to build anticipation for Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 9/11, calling the filmmaker "a slimeball" for "viciously attacking" his son and using Barbara Bush's words before the war against her. ("Why should we hear about body bags, and deaths? ... Why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that? And watch [my son] suffer.")

"[My son] served with honor, and to get knocked down by this guy, " 41 said about Moore. "But you got to put up with it. That's what I'd say to [my son]."
