I Hope Nader Dies

No, I don't. Why would someone actually wish death on another human? Hell, I avoid killing insects whenever I can.

What I do wish is that Nader Supporters would just leave me the hell alone. They've become about as welcome as a Jehovah's witness at 7:00 AM on a Saturday. Yeah, I get it. I know that Saint Ralph has been a consumer advocate for decades. I know that he's big on environmental issues and what not. But, to tell you the truth, he's just not the candidate for me.

My candidate of choice didn't survive the primaries. I would have been happier than a pig in slop if he did, but it didn't happen. So now I'm saddled with a guy who is the favorite of the military fetish wing of the Democratic Party. Yeah, it sucks. But the reality is that one of two people is going to be President at the end of next January. While I don't particularly like the nominee, I recognize that he's a damn sight better than the dude currently sitting in the oval office.

The choice in this Presidential campaign is a fairly simple one. It's the choice between the possibility of things getting better and the certainty that they won't.

Actually this is Dingo but since there is no place to register unless you want to open your own account I have to go the anonymous route. Actually I established my own free blog with this same google outfit just a few days ago. If I can do it it should be a cinch for anyone on this board. Give it at try folks if you haven't got one.

As for Nader, he's a hero. Maybe showing bad judgement in this case by running but a hero nevertheless. I can't think of any public figure that has done more or concentrates more good information in less space. Don't blame Nader for the dumb public. He's really tried to get them up to speed.
