nader screws himself for pa
I, of course, am no fan of Ralph Nader. Neverminding his politics, he's a corporate mogul that has made his name fighting "big corporations" for "the worker". Look into his history, the guy's a total fake. I would lay money that that so-called consumer advocate has done more to fuck over the little guy than either of the two serious candidates.

If he wasn't for the legalization of pot, he wouldn't have gotten any votes at all in 2000. At least this time he can run as the anti-war candidate.

However, whatever I think of the guy, he has a right to make a bid for the presidency. I'm not just saying that because it helps my guy; I recently signed a ballot to get the Libertarian party on the ballot in PA, which certainly hurts Bush.

But it looks like old Ralph stepped on his dick with this one:
The [PA Supreme] court said it had reviewed 51,273 petition signatures submitted by Nader campaign workers in August and found that only 18,818 of them were valid -- far short of the minimum of 25,697 Nader needed.


He added, "In reviewing signatures, it became apparent that in addition to signing names such as 'Mickey Mouse,' 'Fred Flintstone,' 'John Kerry' and the ubiquitous 'Ralph Nader,' there were thousands of names that were created at random and then randomly assigned either existent or non-existent addresses by the circulators."
I wonder if he promised crack to people if they'd fake some signatures. Nah, not even he'd sink that low.

The really fun part of this, of course is:
"This is a moment of jubilation for all progressive voices throughout the state," said state House Democratic leader H. William DeWeese of Waynesburg.
Progressivism = Censorship? I, of course, would never suggest such a thing. But apparently Comrade DeWeese would.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
