Bad idea whose time has passed
In a fit of shameful newsjunkie-ing, I was watching the Sunday morning talk shows. I saw Ralph Nader announcing that he would run for president yet another time. I would think by now that the pious, pompous fool could only hope to pick up the votes of his few close blood relatives who survive, having grievously angered all the rest of his natural constituencies. He's done enough damage for three lifetimes and should retire from public life and do penance for that damage by living in the desert and going unshod on sharp stones.
