"Ralph Nader Makes Me Mad"
Ralph Nader Makes Me Mad
[Which is why Ralph Nader makes me HAPPY! AHAHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHA!]
There are very few people in the political scene who upset me when I hear them being mentioned, Ralph Nader is one such person (Monica Lewinsky is another but that a whole other diary topic). Now I don't dislike all that Mr. Nader has done, his work on consumer safety should be admired, as it was beneficial for the country. But lately Mr. Nader has become a huge egomaniac who wants to do what will make him happy and not what will benefit the country.
Now the first issue I have with Mr. Nader is the 2000 election, which I believe he was a spoiler for. Gore "lost" Florida by 537 votes. Mr. Nader collected about 97,000 votes. Now I am sure that not everybody who voted for him would have voted for Vice-President Gore but I am willing to bet that al least 538 were and probably more. Now you can say that the Supreme Court handed the Presidency to Bush but if not for Nader it looks like the Supreme Court is not a factor. A lot of my friends told me not to be angry with Nader after 2000, that there was no difference between Bush and Gore. Today these friends are apologizing saying how wrong they were.
[I agree with you. Without Ralph Nader in the race, Algore would have definitely won Florida...and the election. AHAHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHA!]
Mr. Nader claims that he is running for the "people" but lets not forget he didn't even get 3% of the vote in 2000. It could be a very close election this time around and I hope Mr. Nader won't be a spoiler this time around.
[Which is why I hope the election is close so you can be incredibly frustrated by Nader's role again as a spoiler. AHAHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHA!]
I should point out something else, to me the lesser of two evils arguments is BS. I see a clear difference between the Democrats and Republicans and am happy with a two party system. I think with a multiparty system you see less stability and more narrowness. Having two major parties forces the parties to be broad in their ideas, which I like. If you favor a multiparty system that's your call but just know I don't share that view. So I hope Mr. Nader rethinks his decision. Yes he has a right to run but just because you have a right to do something doesn't mean you should.
[AHAHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHA! ...And now to laugh at the other frustrated Kommies...]
He pisses me off too
Ralph Nader Makes Me Laugh
[Me too. Let's laugh together. AHAHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHA!]
Only the Republican-dominated talking heads of the MSM give a damned about Ralph Nader anymore. He's running on fumes more noxious than those that emanated from the Corvairs that he unceremoniously took off the strees when I was of an age in single digits. He's nothing but the new Harold Stassen for the 21st Century. F*ck him.
Its all his fault. All of this sh*t we've had to deal with for the past 7 years. If not for the a*hole's vanity we'd be celebrating the end of yet another successful term for President Gore.
Nader is a delusional, narcissitic idiot with precious little conception of the consequences of what he's done, as covered in the FP entry on him today.
Bush, Cheney, and Nader all share equal responsibility for the friggin mess that this country is in right now. And without Nader, there would be no Bush and Cheney.
I'd rather be shot in the face by Dick Cheney than stabbed in the back by Ralph Nadir.
[I think you will reach your Nadir this November when Ralph once again stabs you in the back. AHAHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHA!]
Ralph has become a pathetic little man who harbors an exceptionally large ego and who doesn't give a rat's ass about this country. He kind of reminds of a certain illegitimate occupant of the Oval Office whom he helped install in 2000, along with the Reichscourt.
[Not Reichscourt. The correct term is Volksgerichtshof. AHAHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAHA!]
