You wanna see sin of the wickedest kind

"Eclectic maestro of electro-pop" and loudmouth member of the insane-left Moby is as condescending as ever: "It's one of the reasons why George Bush was re-elected," says Moby. "There are a majority of Americans who are scared provincial white Christians. There is nothing wrong with being a provincial white Christian. There's nothing even particularly wrong with being a scared white provincial Christian, but it's harmful in that they fear the complexity of the truth. So basically George Bush presented himself to Americans as someone who is going to preserve this very anachronistic status quo. Americans love him for it because he didn't confuse them with complicated truths." Lest we forget, Moby himself has what could be called a complex relationship with the truth. Pot, meet kettle: "No one's talking about how to keep the other side home on Election Day," Moby tells us. "It's a lot easier than you think and it doesn't cost that much. This election can be won by 200,000 votes." Moby suggests that it's possible to seed doubt among Bush's far-right supporters on the Web. "You target his natural constituencies," says the Grammy-nominated techno-wizard. "For example, you can go on all the pro-life chat rooms and say you're an outraged right-wing voter and that you know that George Bush drove an ex-girlfriend to an abortion clinic and paid for her to get an abortion. "Then you go to an anti-immigration Web site chat room and ask, 'What's all this about George Bush proposing amnesty for illegal aliens?'" Some of us call "complicated truths" by their habitual name of 'lies.' Maybe that's something too "provincial" for Moby. (Via Tim Blair.)
