Ralph Nader Goes All Uncle Tommy

The disgust on Shepard Smith's face at 38 seconds is priceless.

When Fox News is looking down on you, you've really hit bottom.

That sour, irrelevant old man needs to go away.

I'm always confused as to why Shepard Smith is on Fox News. The man clearly has a conscience and a soul.

As much as I dislike Nader, he has a point. He just chose poorly with his metaphors.

There is no reason to believe that Obama will be any less corporate-friendly than Clinton, Bush, or any other 20th century president. None of these guys question the position of private banks in our monetary system. Expect more inflation, the steady accumulation of wealth by the few, and the declining buying power of regular wages. Obama's tax burden relief plan, when implemented, will be a band aid on a severed limb.

Apart from that, it is super exciting to have our first African-American president - seriously.

There's also no reason to believe that he will be corporate friendly. The rest is speculation on your part. It's not even day one. How about the benefit of the doubt? There's definitely something different about Obama than those that came before him.

On the topic of the post - at least we'll never have to listen to Ralph Nader again...

Well, after the racist momentum slows down at least.

I doubt any party in their right mind would give him the time of day after two completely botched attempts.
