CRAWFORD -- Hundreds of people descended on tiny Crawford -- a few miles from President Bush's ranch -- some to show their support of the president and others to see a documentary criticizing his administration.

In this one-stoplight town, many folks aren't too happy about the arrival of filmmaker Michael Moore's blistering documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11.''

The work has been described as a two-hour advertisement against Bush.

About 1,000 people watched the movie Wednesday night.

About 300 people attended a pro-Bush rally before the movie was shown in a parking lot by Crawford's high school football stadium.

Rally speakers included Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson and state Representative Arlene Wohlgemuth, the GOP congressional candidate for District 17, which includes Crawford.

Showing the film was the idea of those at the Crawford Peace House, an interfaith gathering place that often serves as a catalyst for peace protests at Bush's nearby ranch.
