Fred Thompson, Michael Moore in Snark Battle 

It began backaways when Fred Thompson – actor, former Tennessee senator, and now presidential aspirant – criticized a trip to Cuba by muckraker/filmmaker Michael Moore. It picked up this week when Moore challenged Thompson’s penchant for Cuban cigars. And it got taken a step further when Thompson mounted a quick and artful YouTube response. Nah nah na-nah nah. Check it all out.

First, the background.

Next, Moore baits Thompson about his cigar tastes and calls for a debate on health-care.

Finally, Thompson, ostentatiously puffing away, suggests Moore ‘s head needs to be examined.

And here’s a response from a thoughtful Middle Tennessee blogger.
