Ralph Nader, who made his name beating up on a GM car with its engine in the wrong place, once again finds himself in the wrong place, announcing another 3rd party run for the presidency.
Nader to Run Again

“Dissent is the mother of ascent,” Ralph Nader said on “Meet the Press” this morning. “And in that context, I have decided to run for president.”
Beginning his third third-party run in as many presidential elections, Mr. Nader, a consumer advocate, cited a litany of issues he feels have been “taken off the table,” including single-payer health care, the war, labor law reform, and “cracking down on corporate crime.”
Nice to know that while certain bodily functions may diminish or even disappear by age 74, the ability to be a fatuous obsolete horse’s ass stays strong well into one’s eighth decade.

If Nader ever was relevant to the political discourse of this nation, that time has long since departed.
His performance in 2004, when he received only 10% of the less than 4% of the vote he fatally deflected from Gore in 2000, failed to deter him. Such obdurate behavior is a prime symptom of fatuous obsolete horse’s ass-ness referenced above.
If the U.S. is really interested in a viable third party candidate, that strong, decisive, relevant candidate would be: Michael Bloomberg.
It’s it for now. Thanks,
