You ought to love Michael Moore because he lies in his documentaries. Lies and distortion wouldn't be so prevalent in our political discourse if they were not effective. Sticking to the truth is just a noble way to lose. The truth will never be enough to get the overfed, undereducated and terminally distracted illiterati to act. As long as the mob is moving in the right direction, I don't really care why anymore.

A scientist says he's built a working car 4 nanometers across. There's no picture of the thing in operation, obviously, because you can't make optically images of anything that small. So you have to ask, how does even the scientist know what he's built, if anything? How do we know this isn't just some guy standing pantless before the world?
