Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Son of a Bi . . . scut

Ok, by how we've all heard, Ralph Nader Has suddenly decided to run for President. After all the millions spent by some 14 candidates over the last year and half, after all the damned debates, this idiot suddenly turns up . . . again. Did his party nominate him? Did I see his name on a ballot in any of the primaries? Of course, our electoral system makes primaries optional. Joy.

So now not only do we have to ask who is more electable, BO or HRC in November, we also have to ask who is most likely to loose fewer votes to the likes of Nader. The one thing that may make Nader irrelevant would be if Bloomberg were to jump in and siphon votes off of McCain.

Bottom line folks . . . there ain't ever going to be a viable third party in this country . . . not in my lifetime at least. So all you wishy washy types who remain undecided until 30 seconds before you check a box in the voting both, then whine about it later, give it up. You just had the largest field of candidates to choose from and you even got loonies like Ron Paul running on major party tickets. So I don't want to hear about you anymore. Make a choice, OB, HRC, Hukacrazeebeee and more-conservative- than-you-know McCain then plug your pie holes. Geeze. Bush was right. Democracy sucks sometimes.

I love what Obama said about him. "My sense is that Mr. Nader is somebody who, if you don't listen and adopt all of his policies, thinks you're not substantive,...He seems to have a pretty high opinion of his own work."

Hillary summed it pretty well too saying, "prevented Al Gore from being the 'greenest' president we could have had."

I've posted about the third party falacy before. The idea that you can foster faster political change in this country by adding a third party is idiotic. Adding another party will merely gum up the works still further.

Of course I sincerely hope that people who voted for Nader in 2000 because they assumed there was no difference between Al Gore and George W. Bush will realize what a self-serving argument that was for Nader to make.

I think that there is no person other than Nader who is motivated more obviously by ego and little else. I'd say ambition but he must know he has no chance to do anything other than, "at best," get a Republican elected.

Nader was on the ballot for both the Green and Peace & Freedom parties in California. Also on the ballot for the Green party in New York. He won all contests handily.
