On the eve of the Republican National Convention's start, Fahrenheit 9/11 director Michael Moore leads an anti-Bush protest. Inside the convention a day later, the auteur (who's writing a column about the event for USA Today) received boos during Sen. John McCain's speech, during which the politician referred to Moore as a "disingenuous filmmaker." Moore's response? "I'm just trying to do my job," he said.
