Ralph Nader announced yesterday that he will take yet another tireless stab at the Oval Office, this time running as an Independent in the 2008 presidential election. Oh joy. Prattling on endlessly about how the Democratic and Republican candidates aren't addressing the issues, and blah blah, who cares, this will be his fifth attempt at snatching the title President of the United States of American.

What with a black man, Barack Obama, in the running, don't expect to hear a peep of support or praise for Nader coming from local, fetishizing progressives.
