Good Morning, Ralph
Ralph Nader is making one of the funniest--as in, almost as funny as any mention of the trilateral commission during nationally televised debates--decisions of the 2008 election cycle. He’s coming back to be a disruptive influence on the political process one more time.
I’m betting that most his natural constituency won’t be hopping on this particular bandwagon again. In a different era they might be singing “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”
He has no chance of winning, little chance of moving any of the entrenched positions of the current candidates, and probably won’t gather up much of the vote. Ron Paul’s place in the process--Quixotic, to say the least--made far more sense and pulled in far more support than I imagine Nader will find.
But at least we’ll all get a good laugh out of it, right?
