This is really, really sad.

Ralph Nader: Self-absorbed, hack, useless moron. A fucking shame. And a fucking coward, check him call the Fox guy a “bully” for what? Asking him over and over if he really meant to say “Uncle Tom”? Acting pretty smug in that “oh lord, I’m getting the vapors, this is inappropriate for the childrens” way that people on the teevee seem to just have discovered as a way to discuss matters of race? Call it using loaded language or whatever, but don’t call it bullying when it’s not and then act all TV-tough (“You can cut me off if you want, but you will never take away OUR FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM!!!!!).

I’m really tired that people with otherwise good intentions and who hope to accomplish things that I think are very much worthwhile (read: End of two-party rule, a pure progressive/social-democrat party) rallying around this hack who does nothing but wait every four years to be asked to run for no good goddamned reason. He is just some recognizable name that people use to gain visibility for their cause, and he uses those groups to maintain his name recognition. He is not part of any grassroots political movement, and certainly not the leader.

A pretty fucking sad state of affairs for people allegedly in the left, who want to see a third party movement build up. Seriously guys, knock it the fuck off. Nader is a useless moron with an ego. You are doing it painfully wrong. At least it’s really really marginalized, but I just saw a positive review of a rally of his from before the elections in my school’s newspaper. Well-intentioned people are still getting sucked into this pointless, counterproductive, misguided stupidity. Dude’s like one of those Real World people after the season ends, begging to be put in front of every possible camera. And just as relevant.

Let me put it this way: This man still believes there would have been no meaningful differences between a Bush and Gore administrations. Now, you may think that Gore wouldn’t have been leftist/good/socialist/environmentalist/whatever enough, but to say things would be pretty much the same? Please.

So please people who want more progressive policies and options that go beyond two parties, knock it the fuck off and stop helping that self-aggrandizing useless retard.

P.S. I apologize for having back-to-back Fox News clips. The world has gone mad.

  1. Is Obama planning to cover his ass during a retreat from Iraq by bombing Pakistan?
    Love to hear your opinions on that.

  2. EDIT- No need to be an asshole. Response re-written in a more conducive way.

    Did you mean to ask if I think Obama will try to win over the crazy chickenhawks and gain some brown-people hatin’ street cred by nuking Pakistan? You know, unlike Ron Burgundy, I am not kind of a big deal around here, I do not know what is in Obama’s mind.

    The answer to that would be “I don’t think he will.” Of course I can be proven wrong later, but that’s what I think right now.

    While he’s not as willing to scale back US Military as I’d personally like to, I haven’t heard him say stuff that would lead me to think he will go around bombing people and/or invading countries just for fun. I do believe he realizes this shit has pretty harsh consequences for lots of innocent people and will be immeasurably more judicious in his presidential capacities.

  3. it’s nice u edited ure stuff to sound like less of an asshole to me. thanks.
    ure really cute.

  4. Here’s how Afghanistan/Pakistan policy might change under Obama:

  5. God damnit, I remember when Ralph Nader represented a meaningful alternative. He would never actually get elected, but the Green Party under Nader represented a united protest vote, a growing social and environmental agenda that could pressure the Democratic party from the left. Or hell, how about his days as a consumer advocate? Before my time, but a valuable and far-reaching service.

    Now he’s just fucking EMBARRASSING.
