On Thursday, Michael Moore announced that the Bush administration had issued him a subpoena for his trip to Cuba to help sick 9/11 rescue workers receive free medical care. Noting that many celebrities visit Cuba with no repercussions, Moore noted, “I didn’t go there like Cameron Diaz to get a tan. … I was there to help them.” In a briefing yesterday, White House spokesman Dana Perino responded to Moore’s tan comment by mocking his appearance: “That’s probably a visual we don’t need.”
