Ralph Nader has announced again that he is running for president (ref.) and I very much want to hurt him (but that wouldn't change anything). About the only thing that might help is to put him through brain surgery to cut his ego down to a more normal size and plug him back into today's reality.
He says "most Americans are disenchanted with the Democratic and Republican parties," which is a really old line and proves that he hasn't been paying attention for at least a year to the giddy grounswell of attention that Barack Obama is getting and the fact that many people are thrilled with actually having two excellent choices for the Democratic nominee.
What drives Nader? Does he think he's the Messiah? He claims that he only runs when people ask him to. Who on Earth is he hanging around with? Can someone get a line into that bubble they're living in to phone in a clue to them? At least have them turn the damn TV on and watch a little news. Please.
Terri thinks that no one is going to vote for him, but all I can think about is the 2000 election of Bush that would not have happened if Nader hadn't been there.
