Odd Bedfellows

What is up with Ralph Nader? According to this article in the New York Times, he is now affiliated with the Reform Party.

Clearly Nader has become desperate. After the results of the 2000 election, people have abandoned third party candidates in droves. The only way that he can get any support is to join forces with the opposition. Liberals have shunned him because of his perceived role in Gore's defeat, so he has to go to the conservatives for support.

Conservatives realize Nader's value to them. Liberals realize Nader's threat to them. Apparently the only person that doesn't understand his role, is Nader himself. Does he want another four years of Bush? Is Nader a closet Bush fan? I know, he claims that there is no difference between the two major party candidates. He may be right, but does he really want Kerry to lose that badly? Does he really want Bush to win?

Any votes siphoned off by Nader will come from Kerry. The conservatives see this as a win/win situation for them. Nader is their tool, their bitch. By allowing the conservatives to help him get on the ballot, he's become a part of the problem he professes to fight against. He may as well join the conservatives.

This election comes down to one issue: Do you want George W. Bush to be re-elected or not? If so, vote for Bush. If not, you really only have one choice: John Kerry. A vote for anyone else is a vote for Bush.
