NEW YORK - Take cover, McCain. You too, Obama. Michael Moore is coming out with a new book. The tome, titled "Mike's Election Guide," a manual of mockery for the 2008 presidential election, will be published Aug. 19 by Grand Central Publishing, Jimmy Franco, a spokesman for the publisher, said Friday.
Promotional material for the book reads: "Perfectly timed to coincide with the national political conventions -- and to capitalize on massive campaign coverage."
Moore, 54, won an Academy Award for best documentary with his 2002 gun-control film "Bowling for Columbine," and famously lashed out at President Bush in his acceptance speech. Ahead of 2004's election, the director-activist released "Fahrenheit 9/11," his top-grossing film damning the war in Iraq.
Moore's previous book - 2003's "Dude, Where's My Country?" - sold more than a million copies.
