Michael Moore publishing 'Election Guide'

Next book due Aug. 19 via Grand Central

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."

When Moore won the Academy Award for best documentary for 2002's "Bowling for Columbine," he famously lashed out at President Bush in his acceptance speech. Ahead of the 2004 election, the director released "Fahrenheit 9/11," his top-grossing film, damning the Iraq War.

Moore's previous book -- 2003's "Dude, Where's My Country?" -- sold more than 1 million copies.
