With the departure of Kookspinach and Silky Pony, there is a void in the ultra far left kook wing of the Democrat party. Ralph Nader sees his chance to once again play the “progressive” spoiler. Republicans should open up their wallets again and support him. He’s just what we need to assure a Huckabee or McCain victory. With wackjob Nader in the race, perhaps even the stomach turning empty suit Mittens Romney might have a chance if he somehow buys the GOP nomination. But admittedly that would be the worst case scenario.
Ralph Nader has formed a presidential exploratory committee, and said in an interview Wednesday that he will launch another presidential bid if he’s convinced he can raise enough money to appear on the vast majority of state ballots this fall.
With both Ralph Nader and Ron Paul siphoning the anti-war and uber-kook vote from the leftist candidate, even our weakest candidate could win.
Nader, who ran as an independent candidate in each of the past three presidential elections, told ABCNews.com that he will run in 2008 if he is convinced over the next month that he would be able to raise $10 million over the course of the campaign — and attract enough lawyers willing to work free of charge to get his name on state ballots.
There’s a website already set up. Perhaps if enough Republicans pledge to donate funds or legal assistance, the old goat will be convinced to run again, ensuring a Republican in the White House in 2008. It just might be worth it.
Nader said he filed papers with the Federal Election Commission and launched a Web site after Dennis Kucinich, a liberal Ohio congressman, announced his decision to withdraw from the presidential race last week.
He was set to announce that he had formed an exploratory committee Wednesday, even before former Sen. John Edwards made it known that he’d be ending his candidacy.
Listen to this kook! Size up his enormous ego! This is awesome:
“When Kucinich threw in the towel, now you have Edwards gone — who’s going to carry the torch of democratic populism against the relentless domination of powerful corporations of our government?”
Why, Ralph Nader, super kook of course! He hasn’t let us down the last two election cycles. Why not help us out for a third?
This might be the best news of the campaign season. Run, Ralph, Run!
