Former sack of rags Michael Moore has cleaned up his … well, not his act, but at least his faux-shabby look:

The hair had been trimmed and trained in such a way as to head upward; the scruffy beard we saw only last week in New York had become one of those crisp trendy goatees; the guy was wearing a handsome dark suit and a tie.

Australian comedian Barry Humphries once explained why he’d decided to dress properly after years of Moore-like slobbishness: “When I found myself having to meet bank managers, I thought it as well to look like them.” Mike has obviously been dealing with the suits. Incidentally, it turns out Mel Gibson is a Moore fan:

“I feel a strange kinship with Michael,” Mr. Gibson said. “They’re trying to pit us against each other in the press, but it’s a hologram. They really have got nothing to do with one another. It’s just some kind of device, some left-right. He makes some salient points. There was some very expert, elliptical editing going on. However, what the hell are we doing in Iraq? No one can explain to me in a reasonable manner that I can accept why we’re there, why we went there, and why we’re still there.”

We’re there to liberate Iraq, a former dictatorship whose ruler had a known fondness for WMD; we went there for a range of strategic reasons that in the wake of September 11 were compelling; and we’re still there because the job isn’t done. Reasonable enough, Mel?
