MOBY has launched a bitter attack on PEARL JAM and other star supporters of RALPH NADER, the GREEN PARTY US Presidential candidate, claiming their endorsement of him indirectly helped edge Republican GEORGE W. BUSH towards the White House.
“As I write this, no one knows who will be the president-elect of the United States,” said Moby. “If Bush wins, I will follow Ralph Nader to the ends of the earth just to scream at him and pelt him with rotten tomatoes. If Nader had withdrawn from the race, then Al Gore would be our president-elect.”
According to [url=]www.launch.com, an enraged Moby added that all the stars who endorsed Nader, including Patti Smith and Ben Harper, should “hang their heads in shame”.
Refering to Bush’s anti-abortion stance and lack of commitment to environmental issues if they come in the way of profit, he went on: “If Bush is our next president, I hope Nader and his supporters will be happy as women start dying of back-alley abortions, and I hope that Nader and his supporters will jump for joy as our national parks become oil fields, and as we return to the ‘good old days’ of Reagan-style national debt, and as our public schools crumble, and as the working poor watch any dreams of prosperity just disappear as our inner cities become the burnt out sh-t holes that they were under Reagan and poppa Bush. And I hope that the Green Party celebrates as, under Bush, any notion of corporate environmental responsibility flies out the window.”
Pearl Jam have yet to respond to the attack. The outcome of the Presidential race remains uncertain as a recount in the crucial State of Florida is ongoing. Bush is officially now 1,784 votes ahead, though an unofficial count by Associated Press has the lead at a slender 229 votes.
