The jury is back. Ralph Nader is a closet Republican.
This morning, on Meet the Press [a Republican bastion if there ever was one], Nader announced his candidacy for President. He denies, in the face of all evidence, that he spoiled the election for Al Gore. In fact, he blames Gore for the loss—not himself.
McCain is, at this moment, dancing backstage in Cleveland, Ohio, as he revels in the fact that the Democrats will, again, split their vote—giving McCain the best shot he’s had at the White House yet.
