More on Nader

One of our favorite bloggers, Josh Marshall, has some pretty stiff words for Ralph Nader ... "this latter-day political narcissist ... call him what he is: an enemy of progressive change in this country and a cat's paw of the Republican party ... this pied piper of political oblivion ... he has apparently abandoned even the pretense that he is in the race to create a viable third party in American politics. If he runs, it would now be strictly on a platform of vacuous moral posturing and self-aggrandizement." Whew! Took the words right outta my mouth!

But Marshall isn't too worried about the damage Nader might do to the Dems, because Josh doesn't think he has a following any more. I ain't so sure about that.
