Nader For President!

Yup, Ralph Nader has announced that he\’s running for the Presidency again. Go Ralp, Go!

If you\’re going to have an economically incompetent goofball as President then you might as well have one good at being both a goofball and economically incompetent.

I do wonder a little at this guy\’s historical knowledge though:

Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, an Obama supporter, was derisory about Nader\’s latest intervention.

"I mean, when you get into running for your third or fourth time, I don\’t think people will pay that much attention to it, and I wouldn\’t see it having any effect on the race," he said on Fox News.

Ronnie won third time he ran: fourth time too, come to that.

  1. Judging by this report from American media, I suspect most of us would be really hard pressed to believe on the strength of the available evidence that Ralph Nader, as US President, could be even more incompetent than the present crew of clueless duffers:

    “The Department of Defense, already infamous for spending $640 for a toilet seat, once again finds itself under intense scrutiny, only this time because it couldn’t account for more than a trillion dollars in financial transactions, not to mention dozens of tanks, missiles and planes. . . Army lost track of 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missile command launch-units.”

    Let’s all profoundly hope that the heavy weaponry gone missing from US military forces hasn’t found its way to Iran or Serbia or into the control of al-Qaeda operatives based in north-west Pakistan.

    US Congressman Waxman says proper accounting procedures were ignored when large sums of Iraqi cash were handed over by the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) – the US-led body that ran Iraq immediately after the war – to get Iraqi ministries functioning again.

    “I think we’re looking at a huge scandal. The CPA handed over $8.8bn in cash to the Iraqi government even though that new government had no security or accounting system.

    “No one can account for it. We don’t know who got that money,” Mr Waxman said.

    If anyone here knows owt about the whereabouts of the missing $8.8bn, I suspect that President Bush might want to know too.

  2. I always find it enormously reassuring that Jim Fixx, the man that forced jogging on a world that was quite happily slumped in front of its TV with a beer, died of a massive heart attack after…jogging.

    I am confident that I will open the paper one day to discover that Ralph Nader has been killed by a falling tree.
