"The Great Impostor" [classic Nader article from 2004]
Ralph Nader has not been in the news much in the last few days (and no news is good news), so I bring you this classic Nader article as a part of my continuing series of exposing Nader and Naderism.

Anyone who's been closely watching Ralph Nader's self-absorbed campaign realizes that Nader is not a real presidential candidate, nor does he even play one on television. When Nader criticized John Kerry for not effectively appealing to African-Americans, the question that needed to be asked was, "If Nader were actually serious about running for office, why wasn't he himself trying to find a way to appeal to African-Americans?" He's supposed to be a real candidate, so why doesn't he try to get some votes, instead of telling other candidates what they should do?

2. Everyone should know: I plan on posting anti-Naderist articles from now until the election.
I said as much a little over a month ago. Nader will be running, and people are still threatening Naderist tactics, and so this discussion is still relevant.
