Ignore Him

Rumor has it that a washed-up attention whore is going to be running for President, and wants to be the subject of passionate debates about the importance of himself.

We don't need to react.

If a political career falls in the forest and no pundit is there to notice, does it make a noise?

washed-up attention whore

Is Ralph Nader really deserving of that name? He has done more to better this nation than you could ever dream of. Do you like that safety glass in your car? Thank Ralph then. Like OSHA? Thank Ralph for helping get that created. Think FOIA is a good thing? Thank Ralph for pushing that along. etc ....

Is a man that spent his whole life improving the lives of Americans really deserving to be called a washed-up attention whore in his twilight years?

You are totally correct about his presidential bid. But how quick we turn on our hero's (and I would bet that as a young man you looked up to Ralph), and forget the good things they have done.

I like to think of Ralph as my granddad that started going senile in his old age. I didn't make fun of him when he started peeing in his pants.

Ralph helped turn the 2000/2004 elections over to W. So AFAIC those acts undid the mounds of good he'd done previously.

The only thing he's doing is distracting the Democratic voters and making a bunch of useless noise in the wilderness. He will never be president and the sooner he accepts that he screws up the Democratic vote the better. Crusading for the sake of crusading is a pointless waste of time, money, and votes.

Dems finally have candidates to be excited about, so many former Naderators won't be jumping ship this time.

Nader did a lot of good, but there's no mistake that he's grown into exactly what Dan called him. And a lot of us could offer up plenty more derogatory names for him as well.

dlc is right: Democrats are fired up, and ready for Nader to go away.

I agree with DLC. Nader's ability to gather votes was a direct result of the weakness of our candidates. No such problem this year -- I hope.

While Nader did much that was good, his current "there's no difference between the parties" schtick should say all you need to know. And yeah, sad tho it may be, "attention whore" is well deserved.

When I first read Dan's post I thought that Clay Chastain was heading for greener pastures.

Nader's a moron. His past doesn't give him license to eff things up today, or in previous elections.

Note to all of the left-wing idiots out there cheering things on: Bush won FLA by 900 votes. Nader got 90K+ votes in that state. You do the math and defend why Nader should be in any race.

With an overall 0.4% of the vote in 2004, someone tell us again why Nader's voice matters, and the positive impact he will have or has had in recent elections.

He's a jackass.
