Moby’s Grammy Groaner

MRC’s Jessica Anderson passes on that at 11:59 a.m. EST, during the Grammy nomination announcements, leftish musician/sampler/jingle merchandiser Moby couldn’t help tossing in a bitter scoop of Bush-hater politics as he announced the nominees for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album:

“Tony Bennett and K.D. Lang for ‘Wonderful World,’ George Clooney’s Aunt Rosemary Clooney for ‘The Last Concert,’ Bette Midler for ‘Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook’ – a little bit of nepotism – Rod Stewart for ‘As Time Goes By: The Great American Songbook, Volume II,’ and Barbra Streisand for ‘How to Defeat Our Current Inept President.’ Thank you.”

Members of the audience cheered in response. Streisand did indeed win a nomination in this category, but for “The Movie Album.”
