The fact that Ralph Nader is still running for President of the free world scares me. Is there any doubt that he has the biggest ego on the face of the planet? The way I figure it, Nader is being motivated by one of two different things.
The first, is as I stated above… Ego. Here is a man who has spent his entire life fighting to be heard. First by consumers, then by corporations, then by America at large. No one has listened… well, maybe a few tree-huggers, but even they are tired of his played out shit.
The second is that his motivation might be something more sinister. I don’t think there is anyone left with half a brain that fails to see that Nader’s run for the Presidency is taking votes away from Kerry. I don’t think there is a Republican alive who would vote for Nader. The man is evil incarnate to any card-carrying Republican. Of course, that doesn’t stop card-carrying Republicans from shaking with glee everytime they see Nader on a stage somewhere grandstanding. No, I think that it is in the best interest of Republicans if Nader continues to seek votes.
Here is where I start thinking conspiracy and wearing a little tinfoil hat: The Bush campaign is paying Nader vast sums of money to steal votes away from Kerry. Yep, you read it here first. Ralph Nader is a Bush League puppet.
