12. Tell me about it...
Edited on Fri Jul-16-04 02:18 PM by zulchzulu
I do some grassroots stuff in WI and every now and then I have to deal with a Naderite that usually says stuff like:

- "Kerry sucks" (nothing to back it up with, just Kerry sucks...) This brand of Naderites are usually mid-50s obese potheads who did oodles of acid at Dead shows and now live usually with their mom and have no job.

- "They are both from Skull and Bones, so what's the difference" (not knowing anything about the policy differences nor the fact that their favorite cartoon Doonesbury is authored and created by Garry Trudeau, a fellow Skull and Bones alum.) This brand of Naderite is usually a more insipid version of the Kerry sucks brand, possibly due to be addicted to crank when they were teens. Some notable examples also include wacked-out X rave wankers that have a third-grade education.

- "I'm still upset about how Kerry about _____, so I'm voting for Nader" (former Dean or Kucinich supporters still bitter from the loss and not able to grasp the real importance of this election as well as not really knowing Kerry's policies or wanting to learn) This brand of Naderite is possibly still convinceable that Kerry isn't that bad and actually would be an amazing President compared to Bush (so why throw your vote away)... you just have to listen to them tell why Kerry should run as a socialist in 2008. Yeah, OK...

There are others like some that should be given tin foil hats on the spot, but...
