Nader
Mike Rappaport

Ralph Nader has announced for President.  According to the Intrade prediction market, John McCain's chances of winning the election is now 35 percent, rising from, if memory serves, 33 percent from earlier in the week.  I guess the markets think it will be a blow out.  If that is true, then one might expect a larger, perhaps a much larger, showing from Nader than in previous years.       '

Update: Powerline also notes Nader's entrance and seem to suggest he will get very few votes.  I think they are missing the point I make above.

Nader's "use by" date passed last century.

There were a few old hippies still too stoned to know that who voted for him in a few places in 2000 (less in 2004). 2008 figures to be the year of the goose egg for him (not a moment too soon).

Ralphie, thanks for tanking the Corvair, a perfectly fine car that offerred to launch an American small car industry right when we needed it. Japan, Germany and South Korea are eternally grateful.
