We note that the aging, self-centered gadfly Ralph Nader has announced his intention to screw up yet another presidential election.
One has to wonder what he could possibly be thinking. Does he figure that at almost 74 years old he is a more attractive candidate than he was in 2000, when he got a paltry 2.7% of the vote — just enough to put George Bush in the White House — or in 2004, when he managed only 0.38%? Does he reckon that what it will take to snap the legions of breathless young Obama congregants out of their ecstatic thralldom is to offer them one last chance to be led by a cantankerous old grouch?
Face facts, Ralph: at this point in your career, you make Dennis Kucinich look unstoppable. Go write a book or something.
