    Noodling for a few more voters 

    Michael Moore, controversial filmmaker, voting advocate and Democratic propagandist, packed the house at Kent State University's MAC Center on Sunday and democracy did not crumble. In fact, Northeast Ohio Republicans showed what a classy bunch they can be. They didn't even try to have Moore arrested for ``bribing'' college slackers to vote by giving them noodles and underwear. This was the reaction in Michigan, but in Portage County, Republican Party chairman Norman Sandvoss did not get his underwear in a knot. He told the Akron Beacon Journal's Martin Cizmar (this guy sure has a lot of jobs) that ``this whole business of running to the courts at the drop of a hat is detrimental to the whole system and detrimental to both parties.'' So while outside protesters complained about the maker of Fahrenheit 9/11, the 44th stop on the 60-stop Slacker Uprising Tour went on with Moore telling an audience of 6,000 that 50 percent of Americans don't vote in most elections and they are the workingclass people, poor people, single mothers and young people - and they should. (Of course, these people tend to vote the way Moore and the Democrats would like.)
