Ralph Nader -- Still an Asshole

"To put it very simply, he is our first African American president; or he will be. And we wish him well. But his choice, basically, is whether he's going to be Uncle Sam for the people of this country, or Uncle Tom for the giant corporations."


Yep, on the eve of our historic election, before the day even passed, Ralph "1/16 Lebanese so vote for me" Nader calls Barrack Obama an Uncle Tom. Yeah, there may be some context, but still, phrase your shit different son.

Here's the youtube clip where he is given a chance to clarify what he meant, but chooses to meander about the corporations, and all the things Obama has done for all the corporations and how there are these evil corporations and this magazine your should read called adbusters and how adbusters talks about the corporations and how these corporations will kill you and eat your child and did you read the Chomsky book where he writes about how the corporations flew the planes into the towers because Zinn had warned America but we didn't listen because the corporations were deafening us with their money? He is asked if he wanted to phrase his uncle tom thing differently, but of course, Ralph "the hater" Nader said no, because the corporations I'm guessing made him into an asshole.

Dude interviewing him is shocked.

Here is Thomas Friedman's Op ed piece. In it he asks, "Obama will always be our first black president. But can he be one of our few great presidents?" I think this is a much more appropriate way of phrasing Nader's nonsense.
