Ralph is a Total Asshole

Marty Kaplan had this to say about Ralph Nader
It's hard to believe, I know, but there is now an entire generation of 20- and 30-something Americans who don't know that Ralph Nader wasn't always a total a**hole

Ralph goes out of his way to prove this:

[Stolen from Doonesbury's Say What]

"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."
-- Ralph Nader on Obama, on election night

"What was that?...Are you kidding me?...I just wonder if in hindsight you wish you'd used a phrase other than 'Uncle Tom'."
-- Fox News' Shepard Smith, following up the next day

"Not at all."
-- Nader

Standing by a statement that has overtones of racism when even FOX News gives you a chance to correct it? Wow, definition of 'ASSHOLE'!
Makes me not want to wear a seatbelt.
