No, not a rude name for those you find in some ways troubling - its the name of a propose new Michael Moore film.  According to Yahoo News,

Michael Moore says his next documentary already has HMOs quaking in their boots. Moore has not yet begun shooting the film, "Sicko," but his planned critique of the nation's health care system, he says, is making "freaked-out" HMOs warn employees what to do if approached by the filmmaker.

"At this point we haven't shot anything yet and they're totally discombobulated," Moore said at the inaugural Traverse City Film Festival. Moore, who lives near Traverse City, founded the film festival with local movie buffs to showcase excellent films.
I cannot imagine why health care officials would be nervous  . . . I am sure that film will be popular.  [bm]
